Overview

Universally considered one of the most brilliant horses of the last twenty years, Hall of Famer Ghostzapper has also established himself as a consistent sire of top-class horses. Prior sons include Shaman Ghost and Hunters Bay, both champions, in addition to Moreno, who earned just shy of $3 million in a career that included an impressive G1 Whitney victory. This colt is a song of Ansong, stakes-placed and already producer of a winner. She is a three-quarters sister to Chorwon, a tough, record-breaking millionaire. This colt is a product of the Ghostzapper/Caro cross that has produced five stakes performers, and three stakes winners, including graded winners Za Approval and Mr. Maybe.

Illudere, named for the Danish for, “To create an illusion,” is in training with Jimmy Jerkens at Belmont Park.   He broke his maiden in 2018 convincingly going a mile on October 5 at Belmont Park and transitioned nicely to the turf with a hard fought effort (and second by a head bob) on November 18 at Aqueduct.   Those races earned Illudere 90 and 91 Beyer speed figures.

Illudere returned to the winner’s circle on January 23 at Gulfstream for his second victory.   Expertly guided by HOF jockey Javier Castellano, he rated nicely and galloped out strong for the 1 1/8 mile turf race.
