Graded stakes winner Salute the Sarge came through with his first winner when his son Fishin Frank won a maiden special weight race by five lengths at Evangeline Downs June 20. Racing for owner A. Philip Henderson, Fishin Frank captured the five-furlong race in :59.01 in his second start (VIDEO).
Bred in Louisiana by J. Adcock, Fishin Frank is out of the Blushing John mare Easytoblush and is a half brother to stakes winner Truly Blushed.
Salute the Sarge (Forest Wildcat—Dixie Ghost, by Silver Ghost) won the Best Pal Stakes (gr. II) and the Hollywood Juvenile Championship Stakes (gr. III), both at 2, and was a stakes winner at 3. He stands for $2,500 at Adcock’s Red River Farms near Coushatta, La.
