Broken Vow--Kickin' the Clouds, by Dixieland Band
Cloudy Vow started off short, taking her maiden debut while going six furlongs, but like her sire, Broken Vow, she has already moved on to route distances in her young career. The dark bay miss ran third (placed second via disqualification) in the Grade 2 Pocahontas at a mile before finishing fourth in the Grade 2 Golden Rod at 1 1/16 miles and then second in an optional claimer at that same distance.
Broken Vow also quickly graduated to longer distances, taking a pair of graded contests going nine furlongs during his career and also running third in the Grade 1 Gulfstream Park Handicap at 1 ¼ miles.
His offspring have had no trouble emulating the stallion, with the likes of Grade 1 winners Sassy Image and Cotton Blossom both competing, and winning, at a mile or longer. Fellow Grade 1 queen Unbridled Belle was victorious all the way up to 10 furlongs during her time on track.
Cloudy Vow’s dam, the stakes-placed Dixieland Band mare Kickin’ the Clouds, also competed at longer distances during her career, even taking a turf optional claimer by four lengths while going 1 1/16 miles.
Kickin’ the Clouds is a half-sister to multiple Grade 3 winner Cosmonaut, who placed in the Breeders’ Cup Mile and Grade 1 Shadwell Turf Mile in 2007.
Cloudy Vow’s second dam, Cosmic Fire, was a Grade 2 runner-up and her third dam is Grade 3-placed multiple stakes queen Future Bright.
