Bertrando-Tamarack Bay, by Dehere

Download Full Pedigree (PDF)

Tamarando is by Bertrando, the champion older male of 1993 and a successful sire in California.

Bertrando bankrolled more than $3.1 million while winning or placing in a total of 16 stakes. Like Tamarando, he captured the Del Mar Futurity, and he went on to prevail in such major contests as the Norfolk, San Felipe, San Fernando, Pacific Classic, Woodward and Goodwood. 

A representative of the Man o'War sire line like Tiznow, Bertrando is responsible for 2001 Champagne and Del Mar Futurity hero Officer; Grade 1-winning turf miler Karelian; and Unfurl the Flag and Bilo, the winners of the Triple Bend in 2005 and 2007, respectively.

Tamarando is the fourth runner, and stakes performer, produced by the Grade 3-placed Tamarack Bay. Runner-up by just a neck in the 2002 Santa Ysabel, Tamarack Bay placed in four other stakes and earned $218,965 from a record of 29-3-10-4. She is responsible for multiple stakes winner Luckarack; U'narack, victorious in the August 2 Real Good Deal; and stakes-placed Tamarack Smarty.

Tamarack Bay is by Dehere, the champion two-year-old colt of 1993 after sweeping the Sanford, Saratoga Special, Hopeful and Champagne. The Deputy Minister stallion has sired multiple Grade 1 star Take Charge Lady (dam of 2013 Travers winner Will Take Charge and 2012 Florida Derby victor Take Charge Indy) and Australian stand-outs Belle du Jour, Defier, Dear Demi and Bollinger (dam of 2009 Louisiana Derby winner Friesan Fire, a troubled 18th as the Kentucky Derby favorite).

Other Dehere daughters have produced sprint champ Midnight Lute; multiple Australian Group 1 scorers Forensics and Rebel Raider; 2010 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf vixen More Than Real; and 2013 Donn hero Graydar.

Tamarando descends from the productive family of multiple Grade 2-winning sire Event of the Year; Half a Year, successful in the 1987 St James's Palace at Royal Ascot; 1993 Del Mar Futurity scorer Winning Pact; 2012 Spinaway vixen So Many Ways; and 2013 star juvenile No Nay Never, unbeaten winner of the Norfolk at Royal Ascot and Prix Morny at Deauville.
