Journeyman Stud's Saint Anddan had his first winner June 26 at Hollywood Park when his 2-year-old filly Woebegon went gate-to-wire to roll to an impressive 3 1/4-length victory. The bay filly got the five furlongs in a quick :57.74 seconds.
Woebegon, who was Saint Anddan's first 2-year-old offered, at auction was bred in Florida by Brent and Crystal Fernung, owners of Journeyman. They consigned the filly to the OBS Spring Sale this past April, where she brought $125,000 from buyers Jay Em Ess Stable, in whose name she races.
Woebegon is the first filly out of the unraced Montbrook mare Wontoo, who is a half-sister to the stakes-placed Wonone. The family descends directly from the champion 3-year-old filly Our Mims, a half-sister to Alydar.
Saint Anddan, by A.P. Indy, was a winner for three consecutive years, with his biggest score coming in the Grade 2 Churchill Downs H. at age five, the same year he won the Duncan F. Kenner S. at Fair Grounds. He compiled a 5-4-2 record in 16 starts, earning $423,170. The 9-year-old stands at Journeyman for a fee of $4,500, LFS&N.
