Premier winner for Political Force

POLITICAL FORCE became the latest US freshman sire to get a first winner on the board when his son Born Force scored in a maiden special weight over 4½f at Arapahoe Park on Sunday.

The colt, owned and trained by Mark Jensen, was bred in Virginia by Mr and Mrs C. W. McNeely II.

He is one of four winners produced by the Opening Verse mare Born Twice, a half-sister to Graded winners Awesome Time and Mambo Slew.

Political Force is by Unbridled's Song and out of Grade 1 Ashland Stakes winner Glitter Woman - a half-sister to Unbridled's Song's Breeders' Cup Distaff-winning daughter Unbridled Eliane.

He won the Grade 1 Suburban Handicap and finished second to Corinthian in the Metropolitan Handicap and third behind Curlin in the Jockey Club Gold Cup.

Political Force stands at Claiborne Farm in Kentucky at a fee of $10,000.
