By Polish Navy, a top sire by Danzig from the immediate female family of the legendary sire Buckpasser. Polish Navy now has progeny earnings of over 33 million dollars and has had many graded stakes winners, including the 1993 Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Sea Hero. His percentage of stakes winners from foals is 5%.
Fjord is out of Nordic Trail, a daughter of Ogygian. His second dam, the graded stakes winning Refinish, is a half-sister to the dam of the currently racing graded stakes winning turf star Pisces (by Prized). Other family notables include: G2 winners Lemhi Go & Shadai Dancer, champions Market Booster & Bayford, and sires Mark of Esteem (IRE), Northern Baby & Local Talent. Fjord is bred on the same successful Danzig/Damascus nick that produced Kentucky Derby winner Sea Hero.
Nordic Trail, the young dam of Fjord, is the dam of three foals, one starter, one winner. That winner is Avalanche Alert (a gelding by Announce), who is already a winner at age three in 2004 and is still currently racing. Fjord is also a half-brother to a yearling filly by Arch.
Fjord is a typey yearling colt who has a lot of class about him as well as excellent conformation. He is healthy and sound and has been raised carefully with a racing career in mind. That includes never having been prepped for a sale, never having been given steroids, and no corrective surgeries done. Fjord is ready to be put into race training immediately.
