AIR FORCE BLUE was coming off a three-length win in the G1 Keeneland Phoenix S. and a two-length win in the G1 Goffs Vincent O’Brien National S., both at the Curragh. Bred by Stone Farm out of Chatham, by Maria’s Mon, he was a $490,000 purchase out of last year’s Keeneland September sale. The Aidan O’Brien trainee races for Mrs. Susan Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith. AIR FORCE BLUE now has four wins in five starts, with his only loss coming in a runner-up performance in Royal Ascot’s Coventry S.-G2.
