2016 Belmont Stakes winner Creator is standing at stud in Japan, but if this video is any indicator, he could easily thrive as a sporthorse as well!
Two years ago, a gray Tapit colt named Creator edged out Destin in the Belmont Stakes and earned himself a place in history for winning a coveted classic jewel of the Triple Crown. While he failed to impress in later starts in his three-year-old season, he nonetheless caught the attention of breeders worldwide, and was sold to Japan to stand at stud at the Shizunai Stallion Station.
While we haven’t seen his first foals on the racetrack yet, there are likely high hopes for his offspring. However, in the event that this whole fatherhood thing doesn’t work out for Creator, it looks like he could rock a third career in the show ring: watch this gorgeous gray under saddle for his morning exercise!
