HONOR CODE: A GRADE 1 LEADER AMONG SECOND-CROP SIRES

STALLIONS

In what is a standout generation of second-crop sires, just three stallions have sired multiple Grade-1 horses including dual Grade-1 winning Honor Code as well as Liam’s Map and Constitution. Honor Code along with Constitution, Liam's Map and Mr Speaker (the latter two also Lane’s End stallions) have taken their legacy a step further to sire a Grade-1 winner in 2020. One of these Grade-1 winners by Honor Code is the newest member of the Lane’s End stallion roster, Honor A. P., who was his sire’s highest-earning son and most expensive yearling from his first crop.

GRADE 1 WINNER HONOR A. P. RETIRED

STALLIONS

Lane’s End farm announced today that Honor A. P. will retire from racing and stand the 2021 season at their Versailles farm. The three-year-old colt retires as a Grade 1 winner and the top earner of his leading second-crop sire Honor Code.

In his most recent start, Honor A. P. dealt with an unlucky trip to finish a quickening fourth in the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby, posting a 99 Beyer and traveling an incredible 49 more feet than the winner Authentic. This in turn means that the colt ran the fastest race of the field when accounting for ground loss.

STALLIONS

By: Chris McGrath

 

If someone new to our business asked you to pick a single race in 2015 that might explain the passion that consumes us, you probably wouldn’t pick the processional exhibitions of a first Triple Crown winner in 37 years. You’d show them the GI Whitney S.
