IRONICUS’s Helium tallies first stakes win for his freshman sire

In just ten starters in his first crop, IRONICUS now has an undefeated burgeoning star in Helium. Coming off an impressive debut win on Sept. 27th, two-year-old colt Helium returned to the winner’s circle on Oct. 18th after a professional performance in the Display Stakes at Woodbine – becoming IRONICUS’s first stakes winner.

Going seven furlongs on the all-weather track under pilot Emma-Jayne Wilson, the juvenile son of IRONICUS broke well and settled near the middle of the pack. Helium went three-wide around the far turn, closed in on the lead and took control one furlong from home when called upon by Wilson, then kept charging. A dominant effort for trainer Mark Casse and owner D. J. Stable, Helium crossed the wire in a final time of 1:22.62, more than four lengths in front.

Bred in Kentucky by Teneri Farm Inc. and Bernardo Alvarez Calderon, Helium is out of Thundering Emilia (Thunder Gulch), making him a half-sibling to Grade 1 winner in Peru Emilia’s Moon, TDN Rising Star and graded-stakes-placed Mighty Scarlett, and King Daddy, a two-year-old stakes winner in Peru.
