Suave's Golden Phoenix rises up at Turfway
RSS Feeds Friday, December 10, 2010
On Dec. 9 at Turfway Park, Golden Phoenix became the first three-time winner of the year for freshman sire Suave. The Darby Dan stallion ranks third among all first-crop sires in the repeat winners category, and is also a top 20 juvenile sire in terms of earnings.

Golden Phoenix got career victory number two in a six-furlong allowance, winning by a widening 3 3/4-lengths despite being carried seven wide around the turn. Still, the bay filly was much the best as she took over the lead coming into the stretch after launching a bid from midpack of the nine horse field.

Golden Phoenix was bred in Kentucky by Dr. Charles Huber and Green Hill Farm LLC. She now sports a record of 3-1-0 in six starts, with earnings of $68,356. She is a Keeneland September yearling sales grad, where she was purchased last year by her current owner Charles Lo.

Out of a nice mare in Direct Deposit, Golden Phoenix is a half-sister to 10-time winner Eagle Two Hundred. Direct Deposit's siblings include six horses that made in excess of $100,000, led by Grade 3 winner Miss Matched and the listed-winning filly Becky in Pink.
