Grade 1-winning millionaire Force the Pass is new to stud in Maryland for 2020.
During his racing career, Force the Pass rocketed to the forefront of the sophomore turf division with his dominant, 3-length victory in the Grade 1 Belmont Derby, in which he flew home with a :45.65 final half-mile to defeat the likes of Divisidero, Bolo, Takeover Target and Startup Nation.
That top-level victory at a mile-and-a-quarter followed a gutsy win in the Grade 3 Penn Mile in 1:34.03 in his preceding start. Having earlier scored in Gulfstream Park’s Cutler Bay Stakes after breaking his maiden at the Hallandale track in his second start, Force the Pass would go on to place in the Grade 1 Secretariat Stakes and Grade 2 Commonwealth Derby to close out his 3-year-old season. He placed in four more stakes as a 4-year-old (three of them Graded), then won Monmouth Park’s Cliff Hanger Stakes at 6 in 1:33.73. As a 7-year-old, Force the Pass was third in the Grade 2 Monmouth Stakes.
