Ought To Go was sired by Go Man Go and out of Do Good Bam by War Bam (TB) in 1967. She ran her first race in 1969. During her racing career, the sorrel mare won seven out of 29 races and earned $11,852.
The blue-hen mare was more successful off the track than she was on it. Ought To Go was the mother of 12 foals, 10 of which started and won races. Earning a total of $492,019, they included stakes winners Fishers Favorite, Ought To Be First and Garland Stephens (named for Mildred Vessels’ longtime accountant, financial advisor and friend), and stakes-placers Oughterdo Sumpin’ and Behold A Beduino.
Ought To Go’s daughter Bedawee is the dam of the stakes-placed Miss Eye Opener, who is the dam of racing world champion Special Leader. Bedawee also produced successful sire Somekindadash; Grade 1 winner and All American Futurity finalist Daring Difference; and Mr Eye Opener, sire of champion 2-year-old colt and All American Futurity winner Eyesa Special and the earners of more than $14 million.
