First Dude Jumps to 2nd on Florida Sire List
Published: Sunday, April 21, 2019

Keyed by yesterday's victories by I'm an Ocala Dude and J's Flashy Halo, and a heart-breaking runner-up finish by Cairenn in the $100,000 Primonetta Stakes at Laurel Park, First Dude has moved up one more notch into second place on the Florida General Sire list. 

First Dude began the day in third place, more than $37,000 behind Field Commission. Fueled by the two winners (I'm an Ocala Dude collected $28,600), and the $20,000 earned by Cairenn for second place in the Primonetta, he jumped up to second with earnings of $777,803. 

Cairenn is a 5-year-old mare who was a $30,000 OBS June purchase in 2016. Last year, she finished second in the Primonetta and third in the Gr. III Bed o'Roses Invitational at Belmont Park. Yesterday, Trevor McCarthy guided her from eighth place, moved to the rail heading into the lane, angled out in mid-stretch and missed catching the even-money favorite by a nose.  She is now 4-6-4 in 17 starts with earnings of $260,110, has one stakes victory and been stakes-placed five times. 

In relation to Equibase's 'E' speed ratings, Cairenn has eight figures of  90 or higher in her last nine tries, including three of 105, 104 and 102.
