Tell me more about the prize!

Kanthaka is a 2-year-old chestnut colt by Jimmy Creed, one of the hottest young sires around. He was purchased at the Barretts March 2-Year-Old in Training Sale and recently shipped to Jerry Hollendorfer’s Los Alamitos barn.

The winner will not receive any bills associated with Kanthaka. Experience includes access to horse communications, paddock, backstretch and (hopefully) winner’s circle, invitations to partner events, plus one percent of net purse distributions by West Point Thoroughbreds during Kanthaka’s racing career.
