First Winner For Brody’s Cause Comes At Woodbine

Spendthrift Farm stallion Brody’s Cause registered his first winner at stud on June 28 when Gospel Way bested a maiden special weight field at Woodbine, BloodHorse reports.

Gospel Way chased the two leaders through the opening part of the five-furlong race, then was angled out by jockey Emile Ramsammy in the stretch, where they gained the advantage as the finish approached to win by 1 1/4 lengths. The gelding stopped the clock in :58.37 seconds over Woodbine’s all-weather Tapeta surface.

Trained by Nathan Squires, Gospel Way was bred in Virginia and races as a homebred for William Thompson Jr. He is out of the winning Pulpit mare Bible Belt.

Brody’s Cause a 7-year-old son of Giant’s Causeway, stands at Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, Ky., for an advertised fee of $7,500.

He won three of eight starts during his on-track career, highlighted by a sweep of the marquee races for colts, taking the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity at two during the fall meet, then coming back during the spring meet to win the G1 Blue Grass Stakes. Brody’s Cause also finished third in the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, which was also held at Keeneland.

Brody’s Cause is out of the multiple stakes-placed Sahm mare Sweet Breanna, making him a half-brother to stakes-placed Midnight Sweetie. His extended family includes Grade 1 winner Cure the Blues and Grade/Group 3 winners Went the Day Well, Evangelical, and Duke of Venice.
