RSS Feeds Wednesday, September 7, 2011
First-crop sire Sun King's 2-year-old filly Sunset Queen rolled to a 6 1/4-length maiden score at Presque Isle Downs on Sept. 6, giving the Darby Dan stallion his fourth winner from just 16 starters.

The 9-year-old sire also got his first stakes horse on Sept. 4, when Sun Country ran third in the $55,000 Northern Lights Futurity at Canterbury Park.

Sunset Queen left little doubt who was best with a big sweeping move to the front at the quarter pole, drawing off to finish the 6 1/2-furlongs on the Polytrack in 1:17.90.

The winner, who was third in her first two outings, has earned $46,800 owners Mark and David Doering and Randy Blevins. She was bred in Pennsylvania by John R. and John C. Penn.
