Sun King's sixth winner of 2011 came at Belmont Park on Oct. 10 when Saint Honore grabbed a nose victory going 1 1/16 miles on the main track.
Saint Honore was never more than a couple lengths off the top spot at any point, drew on even terms inside the final furlong, then was able to stick his nose in front in the final stride to earn the win.
Tracy Farmer, Saint Honore's owner, bred the bay colt in Kentucky along with Christine Hansen. Trained by Nick Zito, Saint Honore earned $30,600.
Sun King's winners include the stakes-placed colt Sun Country, third in the $55,000 Northern Lights Futurity at Canterbury Park. All of Sun King's winners have captured maiden special weight contests.
