First stakes winner by Suave wins with flair
RSS Feeds Friday, August 27, 2010
Undefeated two-year-old Tlaquepaque became the first black-type stakes winner for freshman sire Suave, with a stylish victory in the $51,000 New Westminster S. at Hastings Park on August 26.

Coming off a 7 ¾-length victory in his career debut, the dark bay or brown colt was favored in the field of eight for the 36th running of the New Westminster. Tlaquepaque took command in late stretch, then drew off smoothly for a 2 ½-length victory. Bred in Kentucky by Center Hills Farm, Tlaquepaque was sold at the 2009 Keeneland September Sale, and races now for Lara Racing Stables.

Suave became just the fourth Kentucky freshman stallion to sire a stakes winner, and he now ranks 12th among all Kentucky freshman sires by progeny earnings. Suave has 84 two-year-olds of racing age. He stood the 2010 season at Darby Dan for $12,500.
