KETTLE WON created quite a stir in his 2-year-old debut during the 1998 Saratoga meet as the Todd Pletcher-trainee blew away the opposition with a ten and a half-length romp in maiden special company. He has since competed successfully on dirt and turf, going short and long, and fiinished second in the Fort Lauderdale Handicap-G3 over Gulfstream Park's turf course in March of 2000. A half-brother to the durable allowance horse GLIDE HOME, KETTLE WON is out of championSAFELY KEPT's half-sister SAFE AT THE PLATE, a stakes-placed winner of $114,923.
Ch.c. 1996, Colonial Affair–Safe At the Plate, by Double Zeus. Bred and raised at Dark Hollow Farm. Sold by Dark Hollow Farm for $120,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern Fall Yearling Sale. Purchased by Anstu Stables for $370,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Florida Select Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale. Currently standing stud in New York.


A stakes winner of $171,075, WOODEN INJUN flashed his speed in 57 starts, winning 17 and placing in 20 others.

In his first seven career starts, from August of his 2-year-old season through the next March, he went to the post seven times, five in stakes, and never finished worse than third. He came out running at the start of his 3-year-old season, capturing the Star de Naskra S. in January, then three weeks later adding the Dancing Count S., both at Laurel Park.

The gelding was a great return on bargain investments—he was the second foal for his dam Barrera's Charm, who was purchased for $6,500 at a Timonium auction, and his sire Baederwood stood for $3,500. David Hayden was Baederwood's syndicate manager during the years the stallion stood in Maryland.
