First foal is a filly for Darby Dan Farm’s Bee Jersey

Darby Dan Farm’s Grade 1 winner Bee Jersey sired his first reported foal on Jan. 31 when a filly was born at Clearbrook Farm in Paris, Ky. Bred by Charles Fipke, the filly is produced from the winning Tale of Ekati mare Icy Tales.

“She’s a beautiful, long-legged filly,” said Clearbrook Farm’s Bill Anderson. “She’s well-balanced and we’re very happy with her.”

The most accomplished son of Cigar Mile H. (G1) winner Jersey Town, who is by Speightstown, Bee Jersey is out of the stakes-placed Rahy mare Bees, from the family of Weekend Surprise, dam of Classic winners A.P. Indy and Summer Squall.

Winner of the historic Metropolitan H. (G1) in 1:33.13, earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 109, second-fastest by any horse in 2018, Bee Jersey also captured that year’s Steve Sexton Mile (G3) with a 104 Beyer. All told, he finished off the board just once in 10 career starts and earned $976,293 in a stellar racing career for owner-breeder Charles Fipke.
