He started the streak with a runner-up effort to Fabulous Strike in the Vosburgh Stakes at Belmont Park and then ran third in the TVG Breeders’ Cup Sprint to Midnight Lute and Idiot Proof at Monmouth Park.In his next start, he finished second to Benny the Bull in the Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash Stakes at Laurel. Earlier in the year, Talent Search placed in the Emirates Airline Maryland Sprint Handicap (gr. III).
Bred by the Ramseys, Talent Search is out of the stakes-placed Dixieland Band mare Mrs. K. and is a half-brother to three stakes winners, including Irish champion Port Bayou.
Talent Search is owned by the Ramseys, who stand Catienus at Joe and Anne McMahon’s McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds near Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
