Graded Stakes-Winning half-brother to unbeaten 2018 Triple Crown winner Justify
Winner of the GIII All American Stakes
2nd in the GII Suburban and GII Californian, defeating Discreet Lover, Hoppertunity, Tapwrit, etc.
Before Justify became a Triple Crown champion, I thought his older brother The Lieutenant could have been any kind. His looks, mechanics and desire to train reminded me of some of the most talented horses I had ever been around, before an unfortunate injury after the [GII] Suburban H. ultimately curtailed his career. I’ll miss watching him train in lockstep with City of Light. I was sure he was geared up to make some noise in the fall schedule’s biggest races. I have no doubt that his looks, heart and strong female family will be a bonus to the New York breeders for years to come.
