Sundarban’s first winner unveiled in Santa Anita romp

Howdy, a 3-year-old colt from the inaugural crop of the California-based stallion Sundarban, achieved distinction as his sire’s first winner on March 27, when he sailed to an uncontested victory in a $56,750 maiden special weight race at Santa Anita Park.

Saddled by trainer Peter Eurton as the 2-1 wagering favorite for owners Ciaglia Racing LLC and Crystal Valley Inc., the colt mastered the one-mile test in 1:36.85 under a patient ride from jockey Santiago Gonzalez, who kept his mount within sight of the early leaders while taking advantage of his rail position, then swung out three-wide for running room in the stretch. When the duo reached the wire, the closest of their seven rivals was 5 1/4 lengths behind them.

Bred in California by Crystal Valley Farms Inc. and produced by the unraced Momentum mare Foxy Babe, Howdy pushed his nine-race bankroll to $67,360.

Nine-year-old Sundarban, a multiple winner by leading sire A.P. Indy, stands at Milky Way Farm in Temecula, where he initiated his stallion career in 2011. — March 27, 2015

Welcome to our newest Showcase stallion: Sundarban!

Thank you to Milky Way Farm of Temecula, California, for adding their stallion, Sundarban, to our Showcase!

The 5-year-old stallion, who sold for $1.7 million during the 2007 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, retired to stud this year with exceptional pedigree credentials as one of the few sons of leading sire A.P. Indy in California.

His dam, a winning daughter of the leading sire Storm Cat, is a full sister to the Group 3 winner and emerging international sire Hurricane Cat, while his second, third and fourth dams — 1994 Eclipse Champion Older Female Sky Beauty, multiple Grade 1 winner Maplejinsky and 1982 Eclipse Champion Sprinter Gold Beauty — are established matriarchs. Other notable family members include the 2005 Breeders' Cup Distaff (G1) winner Pleasant Home and multiple Grade 1 winner Pine Island, as well as several sires, including the multiple Grade 1-winning millionaire Tale of Ekati, 1990 England Horse of the Year Dayjur and Grade 2 winner The Prime Minister.

A solid performer, he won four races at three different tracks, all at distances of one mile or more, and concluded his career with earnings of $103,340.

Sundarban is standing his introductory season in 2011 at Milky Way Farm in Temecula, California. His first foals will arrive in 2012.
