HE BE FIRE N ICE, a Stakes Winner and multiple G2 placed son of dominant CA sire Unusual Heat, sired his first foal on February 4 at Ridgeley Farm in Hemet, CA. The big roan colt born February 4th out of multiple stakes winner and G3 placed DIMPLE PINCH (by Smoke Glacken) was bred by Cicero Farms. Dimple Pinch’s 2014 Uncle Mo colt sold for $170,000 at the KEESEP- 2015. HE BE FIRE N ICE first filly foal arrived on Super Bowl Sunday, out of Quiet Optimism, a Deputy Minister mare with five prior winners, also owned by Cicero Farms.
HE BE FIRE N ICE burst upon the national scene in the summer of 2013 when the handsome gray won 3 straight races in electrifying come-from-behind style culminating in a victory in the California Dreamin’ Stakes at Del Mar. In his next two starts, HE BE FIRE N ICE made his usual thrilling stretch runs but lost by a head in both the G2 Del Mar Mile and again in the G2 City of Hope Stakes at Santa Anita.

HE BE FIRE N ICE stands at Ridgeley Farm in Hemet, CA for $2,500 SN. Blacktype mares may be offered his RunNWin contract with no upfront fee.
