We recently negotiated the purchase of the stakes-placed winner Campaign Vows on behalf of a client looking to build a broodmare band in the Mid-Atlantic.
Campaign Vows was a stakes-placed winner on the racetrack who hails from one of the most productive female families cultivated by renowned Maryland breeder Sycamore Hall Farm.
Campaign Vows is by the top class runner and stallion Broken Vow, who is now a rising star in the broodmare sire ranks, as well, his daughters having produced Eclipse Champion Sprinter Runhappy, Grade 1 winner Big World, and over twenty stakes winners.
Her dam, Who’s Cozy, placed in a Grade 3 at Saratoga plus a pair of other stakes races, and in addition to Campaign Vows, Who’s Cozy has produced the stakes winner Who’s In Town (who actually crossed the line first in a Grade 2 race at Saratoga as a 2-year-old) and two other winners, as well as the unraced filly Who’s In Love, the dam of stakes-placed 2-year-old winner Buff’s in Love.
Who’s Cozy is out of Who Did It and Run, who beat males in the Grade 2 Jersey Derby and also won three other stakes races during a nine-win career that saw her earn $325,756. Who Did It and Run’s other foals include four-time stakes winner and Grade 3-placed Giant Run, plus stakes winner American Victory (dam of a stakes-placed winner), and five other winners. Also appearing under Campaign Vows’ third dam is Grade 2 winner Hangover Kid.
Campaign Vows herself was a maiden special weight winner at a mile-and-a-sixteenth and also took a one mile allowance, both victories coming as a 3-year-old and on the grass. She subsequently closed her sophomore campaign with a 3rd-place finish in the Squan Song Stakes going 7 furlongs on dirt.
Campaign Vows’ produce record so far is as follows:
- 2013 Jump For Trump (filly by Jump Start) – two-time winner of $52,299.
- 2014 Baltimore Beauty (filly by Flatter) – four-time winner of $90,569.
- 2016 Ellie Liesalot (filly by El Padrino) – so far unraced.
Campaign Vows is currently pregnant on a March cover to the exciting young Maryland sire Golden Lad. A Graded Stakes-winning son of one of the country’s top stallions in Medaglia d’Oro, Golden Lad’s dam is a half-sister to last year’s Leading Freshman Sire, Dialed In. Golden Lad’s first runners will reach the races in 2019, and he covered more mares in his first year at stud (104) than any other stallion in Maryland did that breeding season. His first yearling to sell this year brought $26,000, off of his advertised stud fee of $5,000.
The foal by Golden Lad out of Campaign Vows will be eligible for the Maryland Million series, as well as the lucrative Maryland-bred bonuses — which will be split with the University of Maryland’s Equine Program, from whom Campaign Vows was acquired.
