Hurstland Farm Standard-Bearer Please Sign In Dies At Age 24

Please Sign In (Doc’s Leader – Register, by Mari’s Book) was euthanized today at age 24 due to a deteriorating neurological condition and buried at her birthplace, Hurstland Farm in Midway, Ky.

Bred by Hurstland Farm, she was one of three stakes winners from the 1996 first crop of nine foals by Hurstland homebred Doc’s Leader, but by far his most distinguished producer.

Trained by Gene Brajzcewski, Please Sign In broke her maiden in her first lifetime start at age three and then won the Honky Star Stakes at Hawthorne as a 4-year old. She was multiple graded stakes-placed and ended her racing career for Hurstland Farm and My Jo Lee Stable with $324,446 in earnings.

William Kartozian purchased My Jo Lee’s interest while she was carrying Grade 1 winner Cry and Catch Me (Street Cry) in 2004. She became Hurstland’s blue hen producer and farm matriarch after producing her second Grade 1 winner and 2012 European Cartier champion 2-year old, Certify (Elusive Quality).

Her yearling filly, Bijou (Street Sense), topped the 2013 Keeneland January Sale when she sold for $1.45 million to Nat Rea’s Regis Farm. Her last two foals are both colts by American Pharoah. Please the Pharoah is her 2018 colt, while her final foal is an unnamed 2020 weanling colt. She had been pensioned earlier this year after weaning.

Please Sign In traces to Hurstland Farm’s outstanding producer, Little Hut, dam of English champion Habitat and stakes winners Northfields, Guest Room and Hardware, as well as stakes-placed Lodge, granddam of European champion Suave Dancer and 2-year old German champion Shicklah.
