Get Her Number
BreederPhilip Robertson & Brenda Robertson
Get Her Number secured his place in the TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile presented by Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (G1) with a victory in Santa Anita’s American Pharoah Stakes (G1), a “Win and You’re In” Challenge Series race. Switching from turf to dirt, the 8-1 longshot was fractious in the saddling paddock, but seemed ready to go when the field came on to the track. The bay colt showed early speed, settled behind the leader and gained command at the three-eighths pole to win his third start by three-quarters of a length.
His career began in August with a win in a maiden special weight at Del Mar. He stalked outside and wore down his rivals in the lane. Next, he set the pace, but yielded in the stretch in the Juvenile Del Mar Turf, an ungraded stakes race, finishing a close fourth: a length away from the winner, but inches behind second and third place.
He is trained by Peter Miller, who won his first two Breeders’ Cup races in 2017 with Stormy Liberal in the Turf Sprint (G1) and Roy H in the Sprint (G1). Both horses returned the following year to give Miller the historic back-to-back double by repeating in their respective divisions. He notched a fifth Breeders’ Cup win last year when the mare Belvoir Bay (GB) gave him his third straight Turf Sprint victory.
Owner Gary Barber was born in South Africa. He is a former MGM executive and co-founder of Spyglass Entertainment and is CEO of Spyglass Media. He has served as executive producer of over 50 films, including Seabiscuit. He was the winning owner of Belvoir Bay and 2019 Preakness Stakes (G1) winner War of Will.
Get Her Number’s name is a play on his father’s, Dialed In, winner of the 2011 Florida Derby (G1). He has already more than quadrupled his purchase price of $45,000.
