We ran into Revel Stables on the backside of CD and wanted to ask him some questions about this Fridays $1,000.000 KY Oaks. His horse Demon Endeavor is a FL bred fillie who has won her last 2 Graded Stakes races.
We asked Revel these questions:
When you first decided to breed this horse how did you come up with the breeding pair?
I have had high hopes for Endeavor as a stud, so I matched up my best mares with distance capability and was lucky enough in his first shed duty to come out with two stars in Pegasus Endeavor & Demon Endeavor
How confident are you in HorseRacingPark’s breeding program?
Not been very confident as it resembles a crap shoot, but I think things are starting to show. In my mind at least, I think I have more of an idea of what I want to breed to what to get a better % of what I want.
What farm was your horse born on?
Did you consider the Kentucky Derby?
Not really, I wanted her to dominate the filly’s and then maybe take on the boys – this race will do that
How do you feel your chances are in the race?
I think she has proven to be the class of the field in beating the two most raved about 3yo filly’s in the game back to back. I think she wins, but even in defeat I don’t think it dimishes what she has done to this point.
Who do you think is the tuffest competition?
Knights Princess was closing fast in last and even though I think DE will enjoy the added distance, you can’t dismiss the closing ability of KP.
If you win this race what are your plans for in the next race?
I am seriously thinking about the Belmont if she comes out of this well…We’ll see, I’m not AW 🙂
Thanks to Scott from Revel Stables for taking the time and answering our questions! Here at Team Odessa we will be rooting for our FL breds on race day!
