Her sire racked up a number of wins in the beginning of his career as well, taking the San Felipe and Wood Memorial, both Grade 2s, before succeeding as the 2-1 favorite in the 2000 Kentucky Derby.
Fusaichi Pegasus raced just three more times, finishing second in the Preakness and taking the Grade 2 Jerome Handicap before concluding his career with a sixth-place run in the Breeders’ Cup Classic.
