An ultra-consistent performer from his sire's excellent first crop, Medal of Courage has won or placed in 31 of 46 lifetime outings and banked nearly $300,000. The winner was bred in Kentucky by J. M. Herbener Jr. and Dr. & Mrs. Patrick Ford and is from the same family as champion filly Sacahuista.
Warrior's Reward has been ranked in the top 10 each of his first three years at stud and now has more than $12.2 million in progeny earnings with nearly 30 stakes horses to his name. He is standing this year at Spendthrift Farm for $5,000 live foal.
