Dual Grade I-winning Champion Honor Code is a gorgeous physical specimen from the last crop by A.P. Indy. He has seen yearling sales up to $850,000 and 2YO sales up to $320,000. His first crop has already seen Grade 1 winners with Honor A. P., winning the Santa Anita Derby (G1) by 2 3/4 lengths and Max Player, winning the Jockey Club Gold Cup S. (G1). From his second crop, Maracuja is the winner of the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1). An additional graded stakes performer includes Unbridled Honor (G3P).
2022 has started off strong for the stallion, with Essential Wager recently winning the Palos Verde S. (G3).
Honor Code won the Metropolitan H. (G1) (112 Beyer), the Whitney S. (G1) (113 Beyer), the Gulfstream Park H. (G2) and the Remsen S. (G2) from his 11 career starts. He is the ninth horse in history to win the Met Mile and the Whitney in the same year, and holds the third-highest Beyer (112) up to a mile in 2015.
Honor Code’s pedigree is one of the best in the American Stud Book, containing most of the very best influences in the breed. Out of the stakes-winning Storm Cat mare Serena’s Cat, Honor Code is a half-sibling to two-time graded winner Noble Tune and stakes winner Declarationofpeace. His blue-blooded pedigree includes Champion Serena’s Song, Grade I winner Sophisticat and graded winners Vocalised, Vivid Imagination and Grand Reward.
A.P. Indy was especially successful with Mr. Prospector mares and mares by Mr. Prospector-line stallions. Mr. Prospector will be in the 4th generation of every offspring of Honor Code through Serena’s Tune—far enough back in the pedigree to make it very desirable to breed Honor Code to mares by Mr. Prospector-line stallions or mares with Mr. Prospector in the 2nd or 3rd generation of their pedigrees.
