Hear No Evil had a pair of winners on the Dec. 10 card at Calder Race Course, headlined by Hear Ye Hear Ye's five length victory in the feature race of the day. From a crop of just 13 foals, the Journeyman stallion has sired the classic-placed Jackson Bend, who was third in the Preakness (G1) and second in the Wood Memorial (G1), which put Hear No Evil in the top 10 of Florida second-crop sires.
Hear Ye Hear Ye took the ninth race, a one mile second level allowance, with ease. Stalking in second for the first half of the race, the 3-year-old colt went to the front at that point and never looked back. The final time was 1:41.09.
Hear Ye Hear Ye won the $125,000 Jack Price Juvenile last year at Calder, and was second in the $125,000 Jack Dudley Sprint H. this past Nov. 13. The Florida bred in owned by his breeder Jacks or Better Farm Inc. He has earned $192,937 in 17 lifetime starts.
Earlier in the fifth race, it was the first half of a daily double of sorts for owner/breeder Jacks or Better, as the 2-year-old filly Evil Queen won a six furlong maiden special weight contest, coming from eighth place after a quarter mile to just get up by a neck on the wire. She has no finished in the top three in five of eight starts.
Hear No Evil will stand the 2011 season at Journeyman for $3,500, LFS&N.
