Florida Thoroughbred History Moments: Derby Winner Unbridled’s Presence Felt Today In North American Bloodlines

Unbridled flew the Florida flag proudly during his on-track career, earning the Eclipse Award as champion 3-year-old male in 1990 on a campaign that included victories in the Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic. The product of Tartan Farms then became one of North America’s most influential sires, still showing up in the sire lines of today’s best runners, including as the paternal great-grandsire of 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.

The Florida Thoroughbred Breeders’ and Owners’ Association has launched a digital campaign promoting the successful history of Florida-breds born and raised in the Sunshine State.

The series titled “Florida Thoroughbred History Moment” features an opening and closing image of an old-timey newsreel much like those featured in movie theaters in the 1940s. Along with the sound of the whirr of the newsreel, each video is narrated by the distinctive voice of Hugh Kelly giving an even more nostalgic feel. Based in Florida, Kelly lends his voice perfectly to the series.

Each ‘Florida Thoroughbred History Moment’ vignette highlights a significant achievement in Florida-bred history focusing on the people, the horses and the farms that have contributed to its success since the industry kicked off in earnest after Needles’ 1956 Kentucky Derby win.
