American Pharoah Colt Goes Gate To Wire In Debut At BAQ Meet

American Pharoah | Sarah Andrew

4th-Belmont The Big A, $90,000, Msw, 6-23, 2yo, 6fT, 1:08.85, fm, 1 1/4 lengths.
PHAROAH'S DYNASTY (c, 2, American Pharoah–Funfair {SW}, by More Than Ready) went off as the 5-2 second choice for this debut and the colt wasted no time wrangling the lead away from a longshot up the backstretch. Looking awfully professional around the far turn, the 2-year-old gunned his engine down the lane and graduated at first asking by 1 1/4 lengths over West Beach (Omaha Beach). The last registered foal for his dam, the winner is a half-brother to Born Great (Scat Daddy), SW, $252,025 and full to Four Wheel Drive, MGSW, $693,385. Digging deeper into the extended female family of Pharoah's Dynasty, we find the runner-up in the G1 Dubai World Cup, who also finished third the GI Breeders' Cup Classic, Dynever (Dynaformer). Sales History: $330,000 Ylg '23 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,500. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
