This handsome chestnut colt is by Triple Crown winner American Pharoah out of a Smart Strike mare an incredible blend of speed and stamina that has us dreaming about Saturday afternoon races.
John Sadler selected the colt at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale for the West Point Thoroughbreds and Talla Racing partnership.
American Pharoah has sired four grade one winners in 2022 — only Curlin has more. He ended 2021 as the #2 third-crop sire and is knocking on the door to be a top 10 overall sire in the nation this year.
Sadler said, “He’s the type of horse you need to have out here in California to be successful and get on the Derby trail. I love how he carried himself all week. He’s a healthy, sound-looking horse who has a nice shine to his coat. We’re very excited to see him develop over the winter in Ocala, then head out here in the spring.”
Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2024.
