Second winner in two days for Don't Get Mad


Friday, November 26, 2010
Spendthrift's freshman sire Don't Get Mad scored his second winner in as many days when Mad Aftershock won the first race of the day at Churchill Downs on Nov. 26. And like Populist Politics at Fair Grounds the day prior, Mad Aftershock was bred by Spendthrift's owner B. Wayne Hughes.

Going 6 1/2-furlongs over a good main track, the bay 2-year-old colt had to overcome the far outside post in the field of twelve. Despite the imposition, he broke alertly and was only two lengths off the lead after a half-mile. Still wide around the turn, he dueled his way to the top inside the furlong marker and dug in to win by a half length.

Eight-year-old Don't Get Mad, who was also raced by B. Wayne Hughes, was undefeated at two, won the Indiana Derby (G2), Northern Dancer S. (G3), and Derby Trial at three. He was also fourth in the 2005 Kentucky Derby (G1) just one week after his Trial victory.
