Two outstanding "moms” will be honored as the 2013 Broodmares of the Year in voting by members of the U.S. Harness Writers Association. They are Beehive and Worldly Treasure.
The lightly-raced trotting mare Beehive 3,Q1:57.3f ($8,791) is the dam of the undefeated 3-year-old Bee A Magician (by Kadabra), a winner of 26 races in her career (17 of them in this year) and $2,313,956. She is owned by White Birch Farm of Allentown, N.J.
She is also the dam of the Explosive Matter freshman filly Dynamite Honey 2,2:00.3f ($17,400). This season Bee A Magician has swept her division, winning the $500,000 Breeders Crown at Pocono; the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks at the Meadowlands; the $356,981 ElegantiImage at Mohawk, the $253,000 Moni Maker at the Meadowlands; the $205,608 Simcoe final at Mohawk; the $265,600 Delvin Miller Memorial at the Meadowlands; the $118,500 American National at Balmoral; among others.
The pacing broodmare of the year, Worldly Treasure, is the dam of world champion Captaintreacherous p,3,1:47.1 ($2,973,286). Worldly Treasure herself was no slouch on the track, taking a 2-year-old mark of 1:53.1 en route to earning $97,923. She hails from a strong maternal family, as her full sister is the outstanding pacing mare Worldly Beauty, who was a two-time Dan Patch Award winner with nearly $2 million in career earnings.
They are both out of World Order p,3,1:53 ($267,205), whose dam was Rodine Hanover p,2,1:54 ($231,630)—the dam of Real Artist p,3,Q1:51 ($424,94) and the grand-dam of Art Major p,4,1:48.4 ($2,727,224), Perfect Art p,3,1:51 ($629,122) and Panspacificflight p,3,1:50.3 ($368,843).
