STRAIGHT FIRE, one of the top-rated 2-year-olds of 2016 broke his maiden for trainer Keith Desormeaux at Del Mar by 10 1/2 lengths going 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:14.94, while earning a 98 Beyer Speed Figure. He was second in the Del Mar Futurity (G1) and third in the FrontRunner Stakes (G1). A $250,000 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky select yearling, STRAIGHT FIRE was bred in Kentucky by Spendthrift Farm and is out of the winning A. P. Indy mare Tricky Indy. Already syndicated, he will be not only be strongly supported by Legacy Ranch, but also syndicate members; Jim Rome's Jungle Racing, Larry, Nanci and Jaime Roth's LNJ Foxwoods, Kim and Kevin Nish's KMN Racing, Andrew Molasky, Rigney Racing, Equine Analysis, and Solis/Litt Bloodstock. "Straight Fire showed precocity, speed, and brilliance in his brief career, all attributes that appeal to California breeders," said Pete Parrella who along with his wife Evelyn own Legacy Ranch. "He's a spectacular physical specimen and his pedigree is free of Northern Dancer."
