by | 03.17.2017 | 10:57am
Stronach Stables' Shaman Ghost and jockey Javier Castellano win the Grade I $750,000 Santa Anita Handicap

Shaman Ghost reeled in frontrunner Midnight Storm in the stretch to win the G1 Santa Anita Handicap by three-quarters of a length March 11. The win improved Shaman Ghost's record to seven victories in 15 career starts and pushed his earnings to more than $3.5 million.

Shaman Ghost became the third graded stakes winner this year for his sire, Ghostzapper, who moved into a tie for third on this week's American Graded Stakes Standings sire list. Ghostzapper, along with stallions Candy Ride and Unbridled's Song, has three individual graded stakes winners that have won three graded stakes races. In addition to the Big ‘Cap winner, Ghostzapper has sired Iliad, winner of the G2 San Vicente, and McCraken, winner of the G3 Sam F. Davis Stakes.

Candy Ride is an addition to the AGS sire list this week as a result of Mastery's victory in the G2 San Felipe Stakes. Candy Ride is also the sire of Gun Runner (G3 Razorback) and Unified (G3 Gulfstream Park Sprint). The late Unbridled's Song has sired 2017 graded stakes winners Arrogate (G1 Pegasus World Cup), Bird Song (G3 Fred W. Hooper Stakes), and Squadron A (G3 Mr. Prospector Stakes).
