Untamed Domain earned his place in the starting gate and his travel expenses for the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf by winning the Summer Stakes at Woodbine September 17. Despite weaving through the stretch, he wore down the leaders late to win by a neck.
“Untamed Domain is still quite green, but finished so powerfully in the Summer,” West Point Thoroughbreds President Terry Finley said. “We love the spacing coming into the Breeders’ Cup with him.”
Untamed Domain flashed his talent when finishing fourth in his career debut while sprinting on the turf. He won at Saratoga Race Course in his next start and confirmed his affinity for route races on grass by checking in third at that track’s With Anticipation Stakes August 30 prior to making his fourth start in the Summer. He was purchased for $90,000 at the Keeneland September yearling sale.
Trainer Graham Motion also trained Untamed Domain’s sire Animal Kingdom, who was second in the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Mile after winning the 2011 Kentucky Derby.
West Point Thoroughbreds has had a long list of top level performers including Awesome Gem, third in the 2007 Breeders’ Cup Classic and Twilight Eclipse, third in the 2014 Turf. Both participated in four Breeders’ Cup races during their careers.
