First Winner For Crestwood Farm’s Texas Red Comes At Santa Anita

My Girl Red’s front-running score in a Santa Anita Park maiden special weight on June 14 marked the first winner for her sire, Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Texas Red.

Racing as a homebred for Erich Brehm, My Girl Red completed the 4 1/2-furlong race in :52.90 seconds under jockey Flavien Prat. She was trained by Keith Desormeaux, who also conditioned Texas Red for an ownership group that included Brehm.

My Girl Red is out of the stakes-placed Fusaichi Pegasus mare Morakami, who Brehm purchased for $21,000 at the 2017 Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale to be part of Texas Red’s first book of mares.

Texas Red, an 8-year-old son of Afleet Alex, stands at Crestwood Farm in Lexington, Ky., for an advertised fee of $10,000.

He is best known for his 6 1/2-length triumph in the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita, which earned him a spot as an Eclipse Award finalist as champion 2-year-old male, ultimately finishing behind American Pharoah.

Texas Red won three of nine starts during his on-track career for earnings of $1,767,300. In addition to his Breeders’ Cup score, he won the Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes as a 3-year-old, and earned in-the-money efforts in the G1 FrontRunner Stakes, G2 San Vicente Stakes, and G3 Dwyer Stakes.

Bred in Kentucky by Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings, Texas Red is out of the Chilean-born stakes-winning Jeune Homme mare Ramatuelle. His extended family includes Chilean champion Nuevo Maestro and Argentine champion Le Ken.
