Awesome Speed (KY)

Farm Name: Handsome

Bay gelding, foaled March 13, 2013

By: Awesome Again out of Speedy Escape by Aptitude

Height: 16.1 hands

Career Statistics: 13 starts; 4 wins; Earnings: $252,010 Stake winner

Second Call is proud to welcome an awesome addition to our horses available for adoption -- Awesome Speed. In his day, Awesome Speed was a force to be reckoned with. A career of 13 lifetime starts and 4 wins ... 7 of those starts were in stake races including the second leg of the Triple Crown - the Preakness. This high level of competition is a true testiment to his natural ability. Here's a link to his gritty performance in the Fredrico Tesio stakes. He was declared the winner, but he had to fight for it by launching a foul claim after some severe bumping in the stretch. It's easy to see why he was a favorite of his connections after viewing this hard-fought event.


For those of you who are pedigree students, here's a link to his "page." His bloodlines are a virtual who's who of top horses in the Thoroughbred breed registry. And he has the looks to match. Standing a little over 16 hands, he's a well-balanced bay gelding with really clean lines. It's easy to see why his nickname is "Handsome!"

And here he is looking through the stall bars to his new stable mate - Fleet Valid or Fleetie as we call him. They're already good buddies!
