|Shaanxi dominant in winning 2nd Wild Sun Racing Classic in wire-to-wire fashion!
Written by: ISLANDBURT on October 9th, 2013
The 2nd annual Wild Sun Racing Classic was contested on Saturday October 5, 2013. The G1 race at 1 1/4 miles for 4 year old, sponsored by Wild Sun Racing Stables, carries Equination's richest purse of $2,000,000.00. The winner of the inaugural edition, Barbieri Stable home bred, Dourlum (RR 131.10) went on to become Equination's Horse Of The Year (HOTY) among his many trophies he secured for his proud owner.
This years edition was filled with many sub plots with a full field of 17 newly turned 4 year old ready to fight for the $1,200,000.00 first price and the front runner in the HOTY race. Entries included:
1. Espido a 4 yr old stallion (HRR 130.25), the GI Derby winner and 3rd place finisher in the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown, The Paramount Stakes (GI) and leading money earner in the field.
2. Angry Standoff a 4 yr old stallion (HRR 127.85), winner of the GI Paramount Stakes and earnings over $1,000,000.00.
3. Cape Verdi GB a 4 yr old mare (HRR 128) winner of the GI Breeders Oaks as a 2 yr old and 3rd finisher in the final leg of the Triple Tiara, the GI Daisy Cup. This 2 yr old Female Horse Of The Year, although running out of her comfort zone could be a royal pain.
4. Lethal Strike a 4 yr old stallion (HRR 131.20) winner of the recent GIII Sterling Acres Rumble on September 18, 2013, while establishing his HRR. He had a impressive 15-14-0-1 ledger coming into the race.
5. Shaanxi a 4 yr old stallion (HRR 128.40) 2nd place the GI Derby and 3rd in the GIII Wild And Handsome Classic.
6. Va Pensiero a 4yr old stallion (HRR 126.85) 2nd in the GI Paramount Stakes.
7. Kindergarden Kid GB a 4 year old mare (HRR 127.20) 2nd place in the GI Equination.net Oaks.
8. OTTOWAY a 4 yr old mare (HRR 127.70) 3rd place in the GII Equination.net Hopeful during her 2 yr old campaign.
Quite an impressive ledger of entries with many other horses without graded placings but winning and working well leading up to the race, with chances to pull the upset. Two other notables are; Django a 4 yr old stallion (HRR 131.35) and three 130+ RR in his last 5 starts and a blistering 1/2 workout handily from the pole in 118.40 on 10/2. The other is the undefeated (12 for 12), 4 year old gelding Ynys Trebes (HRR 124.50). He gets his class test against these graded veterans!
On this bright and sunny afternoon, with a capacity crowd in attendance anticipating a classic race. As the gate open for the race over this very fast track, Shaanxi exploded out of the gates getting the jump on the other classy speeders an assumed the lead over a trio of speedsters. Namely,the mare Kindergarden Kid GB, Shy Swedish Sailor and Espido. The quartet race in that order for a little over 5 furlongs with Shaanxi holding a slim 1/2 length lead. Kindergarten Kid GB, Shy Swedish Sailor and Espido were all closely bunch with each separated by a neck in second, third and fourth respectively.
Shaanxi ran the first half mile in around 45 and chance and maintained his slim 1/2 length lead over Kindergarden Kid GBwith these sensible fractions. He began to pick up the tempo from here and started to inch away to a now increasing lead of over a length over the still very game mare, who maintained the second slot. At the six furlongs marker the teletimer showed 1:09 and chance and the crowd was abuzz as Shaanxi was not showing any signs of weakening under the extremely torrid pace he had just set. In fact, his lead was expanding to over 1 1/2 lengths.
In the meantime, two other stalkers, Django (breaking 10th from the gate) and Lethal Strike (breaking 11th from the gate), seemed as if the would be a threat as they stated to pick off tiring horses while advancing towards the leaders. Of the 2, Django seemed to have the stronger kick. At around the mile marker with around 1/4 mile to go. The time was, oh no, this is unreal, the teletimer said a blistering 1:34 and change. Shaanxi was going in full throttle mode with powerful strides which showed no signs of slowing down. This race seemed to be over and the only question would be over the minor awards, as Shaanxi was increasing his lead with each stride. He was enjoying the sweltering heat and this super fast track and his speed and stamina was on full dispay. He powered down the stretch for final 1/4 mile, leaving everyone in his dust and crossed the finished line 2 1/4 lengths in front of Django while stopping the teletimer in 1:58.6 while establishing his HRR of 130.80! The mare Kindergarden Kid GB succumbed to Django but had enough left to hold off Lethal Stike and was 3/4 length in front of him for 3rd while establishing her HRR of 127.70.
Looking at the top three finishers:
First, the impressive winner, Shaanxi is a 4 year old Grey/Roan stallion out of
Xianfeng, the dam Evil Lil Manipulator and dam-sire Classic Devil. He was bred by Finally Farm and changed hands recently (9/23/13) after being purchased from Hogan Stables and wearing the silks of Szeredi Racing Stables in winning this classic. His Bankroll swelled to $1,743,625.00 with the $1,200,000.00 payday His lifetime record stands at 14-5-2-3 and gains his first graded win from 6 tries with the aforementioned 2nd and 3rd place graded money earners. He now wears the leaders
mantle in the money earnings and leads the Horse Of The Year race!
Django, the second place finisher is a 4 year old Grey/Roan home bred stallion from McDonald Racing. He is a son of Attractive Gun, dam Octavia Peugeot MDg and dam-sire Peugeot. He has lifetime earnings of $997,300.00 with a 14-10-1-1 record. This was his first graded placing on his second try.

Her career earnings stand at $955,000.00 with a 16-11-3-1 ledger.
This year's edition of the Wild Sun Racing Classic was gave us another superlative, enriching and awe inspiring performance courtesy of Szeredi Racing Stables charge, Shaanxi. His speed and stamina was on full display. This was simply a wondrous show he put on out there Saturday. In a race with some classy horses he went to the lead was never headed and went about his business as he liked and proved he was much the best on this day. This was his sixth straight graded race and he shows no sign of slowing down. Those immaculate fractions he set bounding on his way to a thoroughly dominating victory are a visible proof. Let's all give Szeredi Racing Stables and Shaanxi three cheers and a round of applause for a job well done!
