Curlin – Worshipper, by Awesome Again
2018 Lexington LLC
Two-time Horse of the Year Curlin was quick to establish himself as one of the nation’s leading sires, already with a Preakness Stakes winner, a Belmont Stakes victor, a Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champion, and a Travers vanquisher to his credit. This colt is bred along the same cross as that Travers winner, Keen Ice, and is out a half-sister to the late, great sire Pulpit.
He shipped to Middleburg, Virginia immediately following the sale, where he is undergoing training with Paula Parsons. Named Bonspiel, a Nordic term for a curling tournament, he was made eligible for the lucrative Virginia-Certified Residency Program.
