Jimmy Creed on the rise with sharp score at Del Mar

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Just two months into his racing career, Spendthrift Farm LLC's Jimmy Creed turned in another stellar performance Sunday in a first level allowance race [VIDEO] going six furlongs, to run his record to two-for-three lifetime.

After running second in his debut May 28 at Hollywood Park, Jimmy Creed got his first win with an easy 2 1/4-length win July 4 at the same track. Facing older horses at Del Mar, the 3-year-old had to weave his way between horses before spurting to the lead in deep stretch, pulling away to a 1 3/4-length victory in a very quick 1:09.37.

A a half-brother to multiple Grade 1 stakes winner Pussycat Doll, Jimmy Creed is out of Hookedonthefeelin, herself a Grade 1 winner of the La Brea S., as well as the Grade 2 Landaluce S. Hookedonthefeelin is also the dam of Just Smashing S. winner Funny Feeling.

B. Wayne Hughes bought Jimmy Creed at the 2010 Keeneland September yearling sale, paying $900,000 for the chestnut Kentucky-bred son of Distorted Humor.
