Bayonne_PinkRibbonThe latest star produced by Dark Hollow Farm and Herringswell Stable’s wonderful broodmare Too Fast to Catch is Bayonne, a 4-year-old daughter of Dance With Ravens, who recorded her first stakes win in Charles Towns’ Pink Ribbon Stakes on the evening of Saturday, Sept. 22.

Running her win streak to three, Bayonne rallied from the back of the field to mow down eight others and take the $70,000 stakes by a length, getting seven furlongs in 1:25.40. It was Bayonne’s seventh win from 17 starts. Also on the board in seven other starts, she has career earnings of $142,790.

Bayonne is the third stakes winner out by Too Fast to Catch, a daughter of Nice Catch who was purchased privately by her owners in the late 1990s. Too Fast to Catch’s richest runner is her son Eighttofasttocatch (by Not For Love). With career earnings of $470,690 to date, the 2011 Maryland Million Classic winner has five stakes wins to his credit, and has won or placed in 18 of his 35 starts.
Too Fast to Catch is also the dam of Storm Punch, a juvenile stakes winner whose five stakes placings include a third in the Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash-G1. He won 10 of his 36 starts and earned $310,619.

Bred by David and JoAnn Hayden’s Dark Hollow Farm and Graham and Anita Motion’s Herringswell Stable, Bayonne is the next-to-last foal out of her dam. Too Fast to Catch had 14 foals, 13 to race (the only one who failed to start died at 2) and 12 winners. The 24-year-old mare resides as a pensioner at Dark Hollow Farm.
