Following in the footsteps of his sire, Honor Code, and his legendary grandsire, Hall of Famer A.P. Indy, Honor A. P. will stand at Lane’s End Farm upon the conclusion of his racing career.
In his most recent start, Honor A. P. took the G1 Santa Anita Derby by an easy 2 3/4 lengths for trainer John Shirreffs. The three-year-old earned a blistering 102 Beyer Speed Figure for that effort and jumped to the top of the Kentucky Derby Points Leaderboard. Honor A. P., who had previously finished second in the G2 San Felipe, boasts a career record of 4-2-2-0 with $362,200 in earnings.
Bred by George Krikorian, Honor A. P. is the highest-priced offspring from the first crop of Honor Code, having sold for $850,000 at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale.
Honor A. P.’s dam, Hollywood Story, had a long and illustrious career. The daughter of Wild Rush earned over $1 million on the track and scored Grade 1 victories at two and five-years-old in the Hollywood Starlet and Vanity H., respectively. She produced the multiple graded stakes-placed Hollywood Star and the multiple stakes winner Miss Hollywood.
