First Foal of New York’s Most Popular Sire in 2017, the G2 Winning LAOBAN, is a Colt

Becky Thomas is pleased to announce that the winning FREUD mare, Looksgoodfromhere foaled a healthy Bay Colt by Laoban on January 17th at 9:17pm at Saratoga Glen Farm. “He’s gorgeous!” said the happy owner, Kathy Barraclough. He is from the family of G1 Breeders Cup Classic winning millionaire CONCERN and G1 Test Stakes winner FARA’s TEAM.

The talented winner of the G2 Jim Dandy Stakes LAOBAN stands at Sequel Stallions New York in Hudson, New York for a syndicate by a joint venture between Southern Equine Stables, Sequel Thoroughbreds, McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds as well as Woodford Thoroughbreds.

“Laoban is an outstanding physical, son of a freaky sire, speed to burn and a great ownership group,” said Matt Lyons, Vice President and General Manager of Woodford Thoroughbreds, “a no-brainer! We are very excited for this first crop!”

Sequel Stallions New York is a perennial leading breeder in New York with the strongest stallion roster in the state. LAOBAN is joined by NY’s Leading Sire FREUD who has been called the cornerstone of the NY Breeding Program. New York’s Leading Sophomore Sire and Leading Sire of 2YO’s, MISSION IMPAZIBLE also calls Sequel New York home. Also standing at the sprawling 223-acre farm and state of the art facility are popular young sires ALPHA, STEPHANOATSEE and new for 2018 UNION JACKSON. For more information, visit
