Airoforce was a very precocious and accomplished juvenile runner, earning over 129K per start. At almost 57K Earnings Per Start over his career, Airoforce is one of the most accomplished Stallions standing in Indiana.
A very versatile runner, who won his maiden, at first asking, on the grass going 6F in a $120K MSW at Kentucky Downs, winning by almost 4 Lengths. He then went straight to Graded Stakes Company and won the Dixiana Bourbon Stakes (GIIIT) going 8.5F, then on to the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile (T) (GI) where he finished second by a head to Hit it a Bomb. Airoforce finished up his juvenile campaign showing tremendous heart coming off the pace to out run Mor Spirit, Gun Runner and Mo Tom down the lane in the slop, to win the Kentucky Jockey Cup Stakes (GII), a points-earning race for the Road to the Kentucky Derby.
Airoforce finished out his three-year-old campaign by placing in two graded stakes, placing second in the Penn Mile Stakes (GIII) and losing by a literal head bob in the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame Stakes (GII).
When you watch his races you will see how, when challenged, Airoforce always hit another gear. That is heart, you can’t train this…
Airoforce’s breeding strongly suggests his progeny can compete early and successfully! His pedigree does lean toward dirt. The fact that he won the Kentucky Jockey Club with authority and was drawing away from very good horses at the end is extremely encouraging for breeders. He gets stamina from Colonel John, a son of Tiznow, but his broodmare sire is pure sprinting speed.contact us
