Sooner Schooner closely related to Breeders’ Cup Champion Accelerate

Accelerate proved himself a champion once and for all with another topnotch performance on Saturday. This time it came on the grand stage of Churchill Downs and the richest race of all the World Championships. His victory from the far outside post in the Breeders’ Cup Classic was a culmination of a sensational season, and the penultimate performance of a fantastic career.

Accelerate was not the only one to enjoy a much deserved coming out party in the Classic. From owner Hronis Racing, to trainer John Sadler, and jockey Joel Rosario, this was truly a moment of a lifetime. Can you imagine winning such a race? We at Derby Day Racing sure can. Yes, we dream big here, but there is more reason for excitement. Accelerate just happens to have a whole lot in common with our beautiful juvenile filly, Sooner Schooner. For starters, they share a sire.

Please come armed with questions for the team about how you can get involved, and specifically about the current two-year-old partnership. Most of all, be ready to have a great morning behind the scenes one of America’s finest racetracks.
