Finally, It's Wilburn

New worker for Corinthian: Stauffenberg (colt; Corinthian - Valkyries' Ride by Dixieland Band) worked 2 furlongs in :26.40 at Santa Anita. He sold for $2,000 as a yearling, and for $6,000 as a 2-year-old. He is a half brother to the winner Shofar. Their dam, Valkyries' Ride, is a half sister to three winners, including stakes winner Grand Deed. I assume that the name comes from Claus von Stauffenberg, who was part of the Valkyrie plot to kill Hitler. Stauffenberg was played by Tom Cruise in the movie version. However, Valkyries' Ride probably refers to the Wagner work (more commonly known as The Ride of The Valkyries), especially since she is by Dixieland Band. You may be familiar with the music as used in Apocalype Now and elsewhere. Read More
