GRAND PRAIRIE, TX—NOVEMBER 28, 2020—Perrys Double Down, under jockey Francisco Calderon, scored his biggest career win Saturday night when he defeated Kj Mucho Macho Man in the Grade 1 $393,210 Texas Classic Derby at Lone Star Park.
Racing for owner Stinebaugh Equine Enterprises, LLC and conditioned by longtime trainer John Stinebaugh, Perrys Double Down completed the 440 yards in :21.478, equaling a 98 speed index on the sloppy (sealed) racetrack.
"In the trial he (Perrys Double Down) got antsy, false broke and hit his knee, today I was just trying to keep him steady," Calderon said after the race. "We left there and 100 yards before the wire I knew we had it."
James Stinebaugh (John's brother) paid $45,000 for the son of former leading sire Mr Jess Perry at the 2018 Heritage Place Yearling Sale in Oklahoma City. He has compiled a (12) 3-2-5 record and the $174,979 winners' purse pushes his career earnings total to $248.2534.
Stinebaugh won the 2010 Grade 1 All American Derby and grade 1 Rainbow Derby with Double Down Special, a half-brother to the dam of Perrys Double Down. Bob and Jerry Gaston were also the breeders of the son of The Down Side who earned $1,211,934.
Runner-up Kj Mucho Macho Man earned $86,506 for owner-breeders John and Kathy Lee and Ruben Mares. Westley Giles conditions the Apollitical Jess colt out of Rainbow Futurity(G1) winner Wild Six by Tres Seis. A finalist in the Rainbow QH Derby(G1) and All American Derby(G1) over the summer, Kj Mucho Macho Man has earned $273,705 in 16 starts.
TYKHE Racing LLC's A Valiant Zoomer finished a neck back to earn $43,253 for third. Alonso Neri trains the Valiant Hero filly out of Signs Zoomer by Shazoom. Jockey Victor Urieta, Jr. rode The Mixer Ranch Oklahoma-bred earner of $69,567.
