RSS Feeds Sunday, November 08, 2009
Furthest Land scored the biggest victory of his career on Nov. 7th when the son of Smart Strike prevailed in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) on racing’s biggest day at Santa Anita Park. The 4-year-old bay had his beginnings at Darby Dan Farm, where he was foaled and raised before starting his racing career. Now, he stands with the elite as a Breeders’ Cup champion.

Racing for owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey under the care of trainer Michael Maker, Furthest Land rallied late to win the Dirt Mile by three-quarters of a length, stopping the clock in 1:35.50 over the local Polytrack. As expected, the race was rated strongly, earning a 105 Beyer Speed Figure. Furthest Land earned a 106 Beyer winning the Kentucky Cup Classic S. (G2) in his previous start at Turfway to earn a berth into the Breeders’ Cup.

Now a Grade 1 winner, Furthest Land has won eight times – three in stakes – from 16 starts with earnings of $869,689. He was bred by Catherine Wills from the Darby Dan resident mare Flagrant, a daughter of Rahy.
