He’s one of the standouts in this year’s crop of 2-year-old
males who have competed on the racetrack and trainer Kelly John Breen isn’t
taking any chances with Grade 2 stakes winner Bern Identity.

Park barn on Thursday
morning. “We still have horses stabled
in my division at Belmont (Park) but I wanted him here where I could see him
Identity, who was sired by Bernstein and bears the name that is a play on the
popular Bourne Identity series of spy thriller novels and movies, broke his
maiden at second asking by a stunning 13 ¾ lengths at Belmont this past June,
and in his next start, rallied
impressively to take the Grade 2 Sanford Stakes by 1 ¼ lengths. Last out, he
was third in the Grade 1 Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga.
When the colt won the Sanford, he gave Breen his first graded stakes victory at Saratoga. Even better, he
delivered a $100,000 bonus offered for the first time this year under a new
program at the New York
tracks. Because Bern Identity was a 2-year-old maiden winner at the Belmont spring meet and then won the graded stakes at Saratoga, he qualified.
“Winning my first graded stakes at Saratoga was very special
and that extra $100,000 was pretty sweet,” said Breen.
Purchased by George and Lori Hall
for $75,000 one year ago at the Keeneland September yearling sales, the

dirt and the Futurity is a two-turn 1 1/16 mile race on the Polytrack at
Keeneland. The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile will be contested at 1 1/16 mile on the
dirt and at two turns.
“October sixth will be pivotal,”
said Breen. “When he raced at seven furlongs (in the Hopeful) he wanted longer and
he was coming on at the end so he should handle the distance of either race.”
Meanwhile, Bern Identity will train
at Monmouth. Breen said that he’s had a few minor issues but he has changed his
shoes “just a little bit.”
Two other Hall stable stars, 2011
Belmont Stakes winner and third place Breeders’ Cup Classic finisher Ruler on
Ice, and 2012 Long Branch Sakes winner My Adonis, are also training at
On Thursday morning, the multiple
graded stakes placed My Adonis breezed four furlong in :48.20 and galloped out
in 1:01. Breen said that at this stage he doesn’t have a race in mind for him
