Horsehat.com Fast Fact: Dixieland Band, the damsire of Limehouse, was the Leading Broodmare Sire of 2004, ending Mr. Prospector's seven year reign in that category.

It’s not unusual for a precocious two year-old that has stakes success in late spring/early summer to have trouble competing once the rest of their generation has time to catch up. Limehouse is one of the special ones that has won early, late and often.

The son of Grand Slam won his very first race, a four and a half furlong affair on April 16, 2003 at Keeneland. He would follow that effort with two more wins, both in stakes events; the Three Chimneys Juvenile on Kentucky Derby Day and the G3 Bashford Manor over the very good Cuvee. Later in the year he would place in the G2 Saratoga Special and the G2 Breeders’ Futurity.

Limehouse opened his three year season in the same fashion he did his juvenile year. He won the G3 Hutcheson at Gulfstream Park in impressive fashion over the stakes winners Deputy Storm and Saratoga County and then shipped up to Tampa Bay Downs and held off Mustanfar to win the G3 Tampa Bay Derby. It was the kind of effort that makes it fun to be a fan of these great thoroughbred athletes, as Limehouse battled with Mustafar for a sixteenth of a mile but just would not let him go by. He gave his all in his next start as well, but had to settle for third in the G1 Blue Grass behind The Cliff’s Edge and Lion Heart.

Limehouse again showed his toughness and consistency in the recent Mr. Prospector H. at Gulstream Park. In his first start in over six months, he ran a gallant second to Saratoga County.
