Sky Conqueror on TrueNicks
Written by Ian Tapp | May 05, 2010 |
Grade I winner Sky Conqueror (TrueNicks,SRO) was named 2006 Champion Canadian Male Turf Horse after sweeping that season's Northern Dancer Breeders' Cup Turf and King Edward Breeders' Cup (both Can-II). Following his championship season, he took the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic (gr. I) at Churchill Downs over Better Talk Now and Einstein, and then repeated in the Northern Dancer at Woodbine. During his racing career, Sky Conqueror won races from 8 to 12 furlongs and won or placed in eight graded stakes events.
A son of Sky Classic out of the Conquistador Cielo mare Heavenly Ballerina, Sky Conqueror is inbred 2 x 4 to Nijinsky II. His sire line crosses well with many popular broodmare sire lines in Canada. Sky Conqueror stands for $5,000 (Canadian funds) at Hunterview Farm in Orangeville, Ontario.
