A stallion known to sire tough, quality racehorses, value sire ALGORITHMS is having another successful year in 2021 with 17 winners in five different countries through February 28.
Seeing more than half his runners this year finish in the top three, ALGORITHMS enters March on a hot streak led by Algebra’s third in Saturday night’s H-Town Stakes. The 4-year-old gelding is representative of the determined racehorses ALGORITHMS throws, finishing top three in 12 of his 17 starts with multiple stakes placings.
Algebra is one of nine U.S.-based placers in the final eight days of February for ALGORITHMS with three visiting the winner’s circle.
Also among his placers during that period was Quenane, who finished second at Gulfstream Park on Sunday after a win in late January. The war horse has won 14 of his 51 career starts and been a consistent check earner with 15 other on-the-board finishes for $334,372 in career earnings. The gelding came close to adding another stakes placing to his name this year when finishing fourth in January’s Sunshine Classic at Gulfstream where he posted a 90 Beyer.
To talk about other consistent, hard-knocking veterans –– which ALGORITHMS has a knack for siring –– Quenane has been joined by 10 other U.S.-based runners with over 20 lifetime starts to hit the board in 2021.
Radiantrithym debuted her 7-year-old season a winner, her 14th victory in 65 career starts, and third in her last four outings. Radiantrithym has proven to be a consistent performer for her sire with at least one victory in each of her last five seasons on the track, 28 other top three placings, and earnings of more than $300,000.
She’s one of two experienced mares to win this year for ALGORITHMS, alongside Deep Red.
That multiple stakes-placed daughter is gearing up for her next start after taking her record to six victories and 13 placings in 26 career races with a win at Laurel Park at the end of January. Making a determined run from last, Deep Red pushed her career earnings over the $300,000 mark to $313,949 with the win.
Another experienced mare representing ALGORITHMS this year is $320,000 earner Dance Rhythms. Finishing on-the-board in her two 2021 starts, the stakes-placed mare was one of her sire’s nine placers in late February when finishing second in an Allowance Optional Claiming race at the Fair Grounds on Sunday. She is well acquainted with bringing home a check – winning eight of her 36 starts with 12 other top three placings.
Already making his first start of the year in Grade 1 company in January, ALGORITHMS’ Grade 1-winning millionaire Math Wizard has been putting in strong works at Gulfstream Park as he prepares for his next race.
The 5-year-old has finished top four in seven stakes races throughout his career and made a splash with a win in the Pennsylvania Derby (G1). That field has only improved since the race went off with the field including his sire’s dual Grade 1-winning studmate WAR OF WILL, future champion Improbable, Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) winner Spun To Run, and multiple graded stakes winner Mr. Money.
In addition to his established stars, some of ALGORITHMS’ promising sophomore runners from last year are returning to the track this year.
One of those up-and-coming stars for ALGORITHMS is the U.S.-bred Eoma Eoma, who has made a big splash in South Korea.
The winner of six of his eight starts in the country, Eoma Eoma has also placed in two local stakes with those two losses coming by only a combined 1 ¼ lengths. A fan favorite, the colt has won his six races by a combined 44 lengths.
He’s joined in ALGORITHMS’ 2017 crop by multiple stakes winner Hypothesis, the winner of six of 14 races for nearly $185,000 in earnings. That 4-year-old was just a neck away from winning his seasonal debut 2 ½ weeks ago in an Allowance.
Meanwhile, last year’s Ohio Derby (G3) second and Travers (G1) fourth South Bend is steadily working his way back to the races. The winner of nearly $400,000 in earnings, South Bend has finished in the top three seven of 14 times with all but two of those starts coming in stakes races.
Looking at a promising year on the track and in the breeding shed, value sire ALGORITHMS is standing for $5,000 in Kentucky this year.
