The colt is by Florida stallion Awesome of Course and is the third foal out of the More Than Ready mare Catriana Camille.
Awesome of Course, who comes from the female family of the great broodmare sire Lyphard, is the sire of earners of more than $14 million. He achieved the rare distinction of siring two runners who swept the three divisions of the Florida Stallion Stakes - Awesome Feather (fillies) and Fort Loudon (colts and geldings). Awesome Feather went on to win 10 times in 11 starts while earning $1,912,746. She captured the Gr. I Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies and the Gr. I Gazelle, and won an Eclipse Award as best 2-year-old filly of 2010. Awesome of Course is also the sire of such major money-winners as Awesome Banner ($878,390), Fellowship ($751,314) and Awesome Belle ($529,187).
The colt's dam, Catriana Camille, has foaled two previous runners, the gelding Katys Cooper, an earner of $31,080 who broke his maiden by nearly four lengths racing one mile on the turf at Gulfstream Park, and Miss Over There, the colt's full brother who is currently campaigning for Circle 8.
