Scott, Louisiana USA – October 16, 2023 – Blue Star Racing is proud to announce the arrival of Louisiana legend, Pound for Pound (Redding Colliery / Buttercup’s Song, by Unbridled’s Song), to their breeding facilities in Scott, Louisiana where he joins Rushie (Liam’s Map / Conquest Angel, by Colonel John), Breaking Lucky (Lookin at Lucky / Shooting Party, by Sky Classic), and Count Alexander (Scat Daddy / Intelyhente, by Smart Strike).
“We are thrilled to add a local Louisiana legend and Champions Day classic winner to our stallion roster,” said Dex Comardelle of Blue Star Racing. “With new legislation raising purses across the state, along with breeders’ awards boosted to 25%, now is the time for breeders to invest in Louisiana.”
The precocious Pound for Pound broke his maiden in his first performance and went on to become a stakes winner at two, four, and six, and stakes-placed at three and five. In his juvenile year, he captured the $105k Louisiana Futurity after winning an allowance only eight days prior. At three, Pound for Pound placed second in both the Crescent City Derby and the Louisiana Legends Cheval Stakes. At four, after scoring a second in the Star Guitar Stakes, Pound for Pound went on to win the $150k Louisiana Champions Day Classic Stakes. In his final career season, Pound for Pound, won the $75k Star Guitar Stakes and placed in the EVD Classic Stakes, as well as the Louisiana Champions Day Classic Stakes. Overall, Pound for Pound was nearly 70% ITM during his impressive five-year racing career.
Pound for Pound was the first stakes winner by his multiple graded stakes winning sire Redding Colliery. The son of Mineshaft, Redding Colliery successfully campaigned in North America, the United Kingdom, and Dubai and at the end of his career had collected five triple digit Beyer Speed Figures.
Pound for Pound is out of two-time Louisiana Broodmare of the Year (2017 and 2021) Buttercup’s Song. A daughter of Unbridled’s Song, she has produced more than $1.7 in progeny earnings with 10 winners from 10 starters. She is the dam of three stakes winners including MSW Flatlined – the winner of the G2 Fort Lauderdale Stakes, the Cliff Guilliams Handicap, and the Old Friends Stakes.
