City Steel

Bay Gelding born May 1, 2010

We identified City Steel as a terrific addition to Desperado Racing’s stable when he entered a claiming race at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans.  We dropped our claim, he finished the race a close second and was handed over to us following a three way shake.

City Steel Pedigree

We entered City Steel in his first race as part of the Desperado Racing stable on March 23, 2014 where he showed us that we had made a good choice by placing in an exciting contest against a much more experienced former stakes winner.

City Steel finished his second race for us as the winner of a $30,000 claiming race on Opening Night at Churchill Downs on April 26, 2014. He went unclaimed, and an offer was made to purchase him a few days after the race. He was sold in a private sale on May 7.
