Red Peril became Jimmy Creed’s eighth winner from his first North American crop on Aug. 20 in a five-furlong maiden special weight affair four 2-year-olds at Gulfstream Park.
The chestnut colt overcame a three-length deficit in the final furlong to win his debut by a half-length in a very good :58.23 seconds over a dirt surface rated “good”.
The winner was bred in Kentucky by Hargus and Sandra Sexton and Silver Fern Farm. Red Peril is the second foal out of Chokoloskee, who is a half-sister the U.S. Grade 1 winner and millionaire Gayego.
Jimmy Creed’s first crop of runners have been nothing short of sensational. He leads all North American Freshman Sires by stakes horses, with five, is one of only three sires with a graded stakes winner and multiple repeat winners, and ranks third by winners and progeny earnings.
