Suave's Anarchy rules in maiden victory
RSS Feeds Friday, September 17, 2010
Anarchy, a 2-year-old by Suave, made all the running to break his maiden Sept. 17 at Remington Park.  The Darby Dan first-crop sire has the second-most repeat winners for freshman sires from a reported 84 two-year-olds in his first crop. He already has recorded his first stakes winner; Tlaquepaque, who took the New Westminster S. on Aug. 26.

Two-year-old Anarchy controlled the 1 mile and 70 yard main track maiden special weight from start to finish. Always under pressure from a couple of other foes, Anarchy proved very game, maintaining a half-length lead most of the way before digging in to win by a head.

Anarchy earned $15,765 for owner Baccari Racing Stable LLC, who purchased the bay colt for $37,000 at the 2009 Keeneland September yearling sale. Anarchy was bred in Kentucky by Waterford Farm and is a half-brother to Testa Matta, winner of the Grade 1 Japan Derby and earner of nearly $1.5 million.

A nine-year-old by A.P. Indy out of multiple Grade 1 winner Urbane, by Citidancer, Suave won seven of 27 career starts over four seasons and earned $1,348,423. He won the 2006 Washington Park Handicap (G2) at Arlington Park in track-record time of 1:53.53 for 1 3/16-miles. His other graded wins came in the 2005 Saratoga Breeders’ Cup Handicap (G2) and the 2004 Northern Dancer Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs. He also finished second in the ’05 Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1).
