Seeking Treasure's maiden win Thursday at Remington Park put her sire Run Away and Hide over the $400,000 in progeny earnings on the 2012 Freshman Sire List, fourth-best among all first-crop sire. The Darby Dan stallion now has eight winners, also good for fourth on the list.
Seeking Treasure went gate-to-wire over the Remington turf, drawing clear by two lengths in the stretch before holding sway by three-quarters of a length.
Bred in Kentucky in partnership by Ron Kirk, Mike Lauffer, Greg McDonald and Darby Dan's John Phillips, Seeking Treasure is the first foal out of My O'Trebor, a half-sister to Love n'Kiss S., winner of the Grade 3 Pebbles H.
