An athletic colt by an exciting young sire? What more can you ask for! This colt is from the first crop of Carpe Diem, a Grade 1 winner at two and three who was among the favorite in the Kentucky Derby won by American Pharoah. In addition, this good looking individual is out of a half-sister to brilliant sire Hard Spun, a Grade 1 winner who’s sterling on-track record included on the board efforts in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Breeders’ Cup Classic.

He has been made eligible for the lucrative Virginia-Certified Residency Program.  Life on Top had his career debut on October 23 at Belmont Park and, in his second start, broke his maiden in a thrilling finish on the turf at Gulfstream Park on January 18.  Trained by Jimmy Jerkens, he is now based at Belmont Park.
