Doug O'Neill began training in 1994 and has been a perennial leader on the southern California racing circuit. In 2012 he rose to the highest level of the sport by saddling I'll Have Another to win the 138th Kentucky Derby and he would also go on to capture the Preakness stakes but was retired before a run for the Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes.
Reddam Racing LLC
Paul Reddam is the President of CashCall a financial lending company. He founded Ditech.com, a mortgage loan company in 1995 and sold it to GM in 1999. 2012 took the Reddam Racing Stable to the pinnacle of horse racing by capturing the Kentucky Derby and Preakness stakes with I'll Have Another. An injury to the colt would prevent them from particiapting in a Triple Crown bid in the Belmont Stakes.
He’s Had Enough owns an ideal pedigree for the Kentucky Derby.
He is from the fifth crop of hot stallion Tapit, who covered Horse of the Year Zenyatta in 2012 and Horse of the Year Havre de Grace in 2013. Tapit won the 2004 running of the Wood Memorial in his fourth career start before finishing ninth in the Kentucky Derby on a sloppy track, but he made only one more start before heading to stud. By recently deceased prominent sire Pulpit, Tapit is out of a mare by 1990 Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Unbridled.
Tapit is responsible for three champions and numerous Grade 1 winners. His top offspring include 2011 champion two-year-old colt Hansen; 2008 champion two-year-old filly Stardom Bound; and Grade 1 winner Careless Jewel, who captured the 2009 Alabama at 1 ¼ miles. The fast-rising gray stallion is proving to be an outstanding source of both speed and stamina. He has several other current Derby hopefuls, including Normandy Invasion, Tesseron and Flashback.
He’s Had Enough is from a great female family -- his third dam is Broodmare of the Year Courtly Dee. The colt is out of the stakes-winning Amelia, who competed in multiple graded events at 1 ½-mile distances. A daughter of Dixieland Band, Amelia has also produced Kindergarden Kid, who won the Grade 3 Sycamore at 1 ½ miles and placed in the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch at the same distance in 2012.
Amelia is out the Alydar mare Aquilegia, a multiple graded stakes winner in turf routes and the dam of English Group 3 winner and Group 1 runner-up Bertolini, who was very quick.
Dixieland Band is as fashionable as they come for a Kentucky Derby contender. He is the damsire of 2000 Kentucky Derby winner Monarchos; 2007 Derby winner and champion Street Sense; ill-fated 2008 Derby runner-up Eight Belles; and a slew of top-class performers.
In terms of bloodlines, He’s Had Enough will bring plenty to the table if he makes the Kentucky Derby starting gate.
