Modesty H. Recap

Shadwell Farm’s homebred Ausus had a breakthrough moment July 13. The multiple stakes-placed 4-year-old filly became a graded stakes winner after coming from just off the pace to win the Modesty Handicap (gr. IIIT) at Arlington Park for trainer Danny Peitz. The winner toted 116 pounds in the Modesty, which wasn’t much of a handicap race as there was only a three-pound swing in the weights from 116-119 among the eight participants.

Stakes-placed twice at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots this winter, Ausus was fifth against a strong bunch in the Jenny Wiley Stakes (gr. IT) at Keeneland in April (but moved up to fourth on disqualification) and fourth, beaten just a length in the May 25 Arlington Matron Stakes (gr. III) on Polytrack.

Ausus is from the first crop of Shadwell’s Invasor, who now has two added-money winners from his first crop. His initial stakes winner came on June 29 when the New York-bred Saint Arthur won the Ontario County Stakes at Finger Lakes. Saint Arthur is out of the stakes-winning mare Miss Winning Sweep, a daughter of End Sweep. End Sweep is a grandson of Mr. Prospector.

Ausus is the second foal out of El Raabi, by 2000 Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Fusaichi Pegasus, a son of Mr. Prospector.

Invasor is an outcross to Mr. Prospector.

El Raabi, bred by Classic Star, was picked up by Sheikh Hamdan’s Shadwell Estate Co. for $500,000 at the 2003 Keeneland September yearling sale from the consignment of Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent. El Raabi had the black-type to back up her purchase price, coming from the family of French champion 2-year-old filly Play It Safe, Irish highweight Prudent Manner, and Washington, D.C., International Stakes (gr. IT) winner Providential. Also in the family are German standouts Walzerkoenigin and her son, highweight Wiener Walzer (by Dynaformer).

It may have taken awhile, but Invasor is catching fire. Ausus represents his second stakes winner. Horse of the Year in Uruguay at 3, Invasor was unbeaten at 4 in four starts in North America in 2006 (all grade I events), earning the gold Eclipse Award as Horse of the Year. At 5 he won the Donn Handicap (gr. I) and Emirates Airline Dubai World Cup (UAE-I). He stands at Shadwell Stud near Lexington. His 2013 fee was $4,000.—E.H.
