Awesome of Course had a brilliant 2010 capped off at the Eclipse Awards on Jan. 17 when his daughter Awesome Feather was named the 2-year-old filly champion.

Bred in Florida by Fred Brei’s Jacks Or Better Farm, the two-year-old filly was undefeated in six starts last year, five of them stakes. On November 5th, Awesome Feather's championship campaigned culminated with a decisive victory in the $1.8 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1). Earlier in the year, she became one of just four fillies in history to sweep the Florida Stallion Stakes Series at Calder Race Course.

The nation’s No. 6 Juvenile Sire with progeny earnings just shy of $1.5 million, Awesome of Course has had exceptional results from limited opportunity. From just 26 named foals, he has 20 starters, 15 winners, and four stakes horses.

Awesome of Course from the first crop of Awesome Again, was a three-time stakes winner. He will join the Journeyman Stud stallion roster for the first time in 2011, where he will stand for $5,000 LFS&N.
