Foals of 1940

Chart(s) of the week: Princequillo’s 2-year-old struggles

While Princequillo (IRE) would become a solid stakes performer in his later years as the distances increased, nine out of ten of his starts as a 2-year-old were in the claiming ranks.

Racing at distances from 5 ½ furlongs to 1 mile, Princequillo’s lone non-claiming appearance did not come until his final start of the year – a last place finish in the Sporting Plate Handicap (6f) at the United Hunts Racing Association’s Belmont Park meeting in November 1942. He would conclude his juvenile season with a record of (10) 3-2-3 and $3,575 in earnings.

*Note: This Sporting Plate Handicap was a 2-year-old race held over the years as part of the United Hunts at Belmont meeting, and is an altogether different race from the Sporting Plate Handicap run from the late 1970s to late 1990s at Aqueduct.
