Keeneland Presents American Graded Stakes Standings: WinStar’s Anthem

WinStar Farm, China Horse Club, Head of Plains Partners and SF Racing added another 2018 American Graded Stakes winner to their resume last weekend when American Anthem won the Grade 2 San Carlos Stakes at Santa Anita. Trained by Bob Baffert, American Anthem was a G2 and G3 winner in 2017.

WinStar Farm – which with China Horse Club and Head Plains Partners leads all owners with ownership interests in eight AGS winners apiece – bred American Anthem, a 4-year-old colt from the first crop of WinStar stallion Bodemeister out of the A.P. Indy mare, Indy’s Windy. The latter is a half sister to the late James Tafel’s champion mare Banshee Breeze.

American Anthem was the seventh AGS winner of 2018 bred by Kenny Troutt’s WinStar Farm to lead in that category.

WinStar sold American Anthem as a yearling through Select Sales. The colt brought $180,000 from E.J. Stable at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. He was then resold by consignor Hoppel’s Horse & Cattle as a 2-year-old at the OBS March Sale. WinStar and China Horse Club were the buyers for $435,000.

WinStar originally purchased the dam of American Anthem as a racing or broodmare prospect for $550,000 from Lane’s End at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale in 2008. Three years earlier Indy’s Windy was a $1.1-million Keeneland September Sale Yearling, sold by Taylor Made, agent for ClassicStar, to a buyer listed as G+C. She began her career racing for the late Stan Fulton (owner of Sunland Park in New Mexico), then was purchased privately by Bill Farish prior to being sold at the 2008 Keeneland November Sale.

Last November, after American Anthem became the first stakes winner for Indy’s Windy, the 13-year-old mare was sold for $500,000 at Keeneland by Woodford Thoroughbreds, agent, to SF Bloodstock, the breeding affiliate of SF Racing – both of which are reported to be part of billionaire George Soros’ bloodstock holdings. Indy’s Windy was believed pregnant to the cover of American Anthem’s sire, Bodemeister.
