Kanthaka sets milestone for Jimmy Creed

Kanthaka's stretch rally earned the Jimmy Creed 2-year-old colt a hard-fought neck victory in a seven-furlong maiden special weight contest during the opening day of the Santa Anita Park meet on Dec. 26 (VIDEO).

The colt, bred by Spendthrift Farm, is the 20th winner overall from Jimmy Creed's first crop. He is one of only three 2017 freshman sires standing in North America to hit that mark.

Kanthaka, trained by Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer for West Point Thoroughbreds, was in midpack before splitting horses coming into the stretch, then ran down Camby late for the win. 

West Point purchased Kanthaka for US$140,000 out of the Barretts California March 2-year-olds in training sale. The chestnut colt is the first foal out of Sliced Bread, who is a half-sister to a pair of stakes winners.
