Twilight Eclipse

Purchased privately by WPT in 2012 following wins in his first two starts at Indiana Downs, Twilight Eclipse ran credibly in three stakes races before breaking through and winning the W.L. McKnight Handicap at Calder Racecourse in November 2012. Early in his 4-year-old season, he  set a WORLD RECORD (2:22.63) for 1 1/2 miles on the turf in the Pan American Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park.

The son of Purim has hit the board in 14 graded stakes races, including 10 grade ones. His biggest win came in the $400,000 Man O'War Stakes (G1) in May of 2015 at Belmont Park and his career earnings are just shy of $2 million.
