Treasure Beach in top 10 nationally in two major categories
There are 115 freshman sires posted on the Blood-Horse’s Freshman Sire list for 2017: only four have more winners than the 10 registered by Treasure Beach. In addition, the son of Galileo is sitting in ninth place with $473,911 in progeny earnings, and one of those ahead of him is Poseidon’s Warrior, in seventh.
Treasure Beach’s 10th winner is Treasure Hunter, who broke his maiden in style at Santa Anita yesterday as the 9/10 favorite, racing 5 1/2 furlongs over the main track. Tiago Pereira settled the colt into second place early and Treasure Hunter went after the leader on the turn, took over entering the stretch and drew clear without the need of much urging. The winning margin was 2 3/4 lengths and the winner’s share of the purse for the Kentucky-bred was $13,800.
