Lead Feature Presented By Gainesway: Bloodstock editor Joe Nevills takes a look back at the life of Forward Pass – the first horse to be promoted to first in the Kentucky Derby following a post-race drug test – his stud career, and how his trajectory compares to the modern saga of recently-promoted Derby winner Mandaloun.

The Stat Presented By Classic Bloodstock: Blazing times are not a given during the Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream under-tack show, but one stallion has cracked the code of the Gulfstream surface with his juveniles, and towers over his peers by auction horses with breezes of :10-flat or faster since 2015.

Pennsylvania Leaderboard Presented By Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Association: For a seventh consecutive year, Jump Start was Pennsylvania's leading sire by state stallion award earnings. See which horses got him to the top in 2021, and which other stallions brought in big checks for their owners.

Ask Your Insurer Presented By Muirfield Insurance: Bryce Burton of Muirfield Insurance explains the steps to insure a horse when their shares are being divided into partnerships.

First-Crop Sire Watch: Stallions whose first crops of 2-year-olds are represented in the Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale, with the number of foals cataloged and the farms where the stallions are currently advertised.
