Written by Ian Tapp | Jun 24, 2010 |
TrueNicks welcomes Pure Precision (TrueNicks,SRO), a fast and precocious son of Montbrook standing at Blackstone Farm near Pine Grove, Pennsylvania.
Pure Precision is out of the speedy Distinctive mare Al’s Helen, winner of the First Flight Handicap (gr. III) over 7 furlongs. Al's Helen is a half sister to gr. II winner and sire Straight Man, who was second in the Malibu Stakes (gr. I). Always a quick filly, Al’s Helen set a new Hollywood Park 5-furlong track record of :57 1/5 in her career debut.
Like his dam, Pure Precision burst on the scene in June of his 2-year-old year, romping by 10 lengths in his first start, a 5-furlong Maiden Special Weight at Calder. He subsequently ran second in the Criterium Stakes before taking the 5 ½-furlong Tyro Stakes and 6-furlong Sapling Stakes (gr. III) at Monmouth.
Pure Precision has sired Tight Precision, winner of the 2010 Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Turf (Video), clocking 9 furlongs in 1:47 1/5. Tight Precision was also a close second in the Pin Oak Valley View Stakes (gr. III) at Keeneland. Earlier this month, Pure Precision's son Rusty Charlie ran third in the Ponche Handicap at Calder. Pure Precision boasts an impressive 24 winners from 45 starters (53%) in 2010, and is among the leading sires in Pennsylvania. His oldest progeny are 5-year-olds, with lifetime earnings approaching $3 million.
