Although its likely she’s never been registered in the state of Indiana, an odd Indiana sired mare turned up in the winner’s circle at Freehold Friday, Dec. 16. Anne Bonney N and driver Vincent Ginsburg scored a gate to wire win for her second win of 2022.
Anne Bonney N is the daughter of Net Ten EOM. She was part of the first crop of the Indiana sire born in 2016 but most likely was a semen transport to New Zealand where her mother, Galleons Reward, an unraced daughter of Badlands Hanover, is located.
Anne Bonney N didn’t make it to the races at two or three, but made her racing debut “down under” as a four-year-old, winning one race there before being exported to the United States. She initially was under the conditioning of trainer Ross Croghan for an ownership group including Let it Ride and Robert Cooper Stables. She later transferred hands to her current ownership of Joe Fusco’s JMF Racing LLC out of Freehold, NJ.
Since arriving in the United States, Anne Bonney N has won 11 of 68 starts with more than $142,000 on her card. Her quickest mile was recorded at five at Pocono Downs. She has raced all over the Eastern part of the United States and juggles time between Freehold and Yonkers Raceway in recent starts. The now seven-year-old mare is trained by Paul Fusco.
Anne Bonney N was a bit of a surprise at the windows with her second win of 2022 at Freehold, paying $9.00 for the trip to the winner’s circle. She is closing out her 2022 racing campaign with two wins in 35 starts for 2022 for her connections. She was a dominant winner over the rain-soaked track by four and three-quarter lengths, really accelerating around Freehold’s half-mile track turns. Lovely Lady May, a four-year-old daughter by Always a Virgin bred by Freeman Bontrager, finished third in the race for driver Jim Marohn Jr.
Net Ten EOM produced four crops of Indiana sired horses from 2014 through 2017. His final crop are now four-year-olds in 2022. Of 152 registered foals, the son of Somebeachsomewhere produced 114 starters with 74 of them taking marks of 2:00 or faster. A total of 48 of his starters dipped under the 1:55.0 time barrier and have earned $4.3 million collectively.
Twelve of the foals by Net Ten EOM earned six figures led by Bluebird Recon, who is approaching $400,000 in earnings with a mark of 1:50.1. All 12 foals over the $100,000 mark are still racing. Other top performers include Jims Perfect Ten ($270,000, 1:50.0), American Crhome ($239,000, 1:51.1) and Ron’s EOM ($216,000, 1:50.0). Anne Bonney N is ranked sixth of the list of all-time leading money earners for Net Ten EOM.
