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.


Bred by Dark Hollow Farm out of Munchkin Michele, BAMBA was sold as a yearling to trainer John Scanlan, who campaigned her to an impressive career on the track. From 11 starts, she earned $92,680 while racing exclusively in Maryland, and hit the board in four consecutive stakes—a second in the What a Summer and thirds in the Smart Halo, Politely and Squan Song.

BAMBA was purchased privately upon her retirement in 2004 and brought back home to Dark Hollow. Her first six foals of racing age (through 2016) are all winners, including Maryland-bred champion 2-year-old filly of 2011 PLUM, winner of the Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship Stakes, and U Boat Alley, an earner of nearly $150,000.

BAMBA's 2013 2-year-old filly by Pure Prize, a full sister to PLUM, sold for $240,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May 2-year-olds in training sale, the most expensive Mid-Atlantic-bred of the sale. Named BREAD AND BUTTER, she won her first two starts impressively at Churchill Downs and Oaklawn Park.
