A foal of 1980 by Icecapade, out of Bushel-n-Peck, Wild Again arrived at Three Chimneys in December of 1991 as part of the dissolution of Calumet Farm.  At that point, he had three crops of racing age.  Throughout his career he commanded billing as a leading general sire, juvenile sire, and broodmare sire.  He has sired eight millionaires, four champions, 88 stakes winners, and 148 two-year-old winners.  His offspring earnings consistently ranked above $4 million year after year and his runners won at the highest levels over all distances.  Due to declining fertility, he was pensioned in October of 2004, but remained in good health until his death.

Wild Again earned $2,204,829 on the track, but will always be remembered for his longshot win in the inaugural Breeders' Cup Classic-G1.  In that race, Wild Again, supplemented at a cost of $360,000, prevailed in a ferocious stretch drive that involved considerable bumping between Wild Again, Gate Dancer and Slew o' Gold and -- finally -- survived a nine-minute-long stewards' examination of the finish to become the first winner of Thoroughbred racing's richest event.
