Bred: Joan Hadley Thoroughbreds (Ky.)
Sire: Salute the Sarge
Dam: Sarasota (ARG), by Luhuk
Salutos Amigos began his career in route races but was turned back to sprint distances late in his 3-year-old year. He blossomed as a 4-year-old, placing in a pair of graded stakes before breaking through with his first graded stakes triumph in October with a tally in the Bold Ruler Handicap.
After a disappointing effort in the Breeders' Cup Sprint, Salutos Amigos strung together four consecutive wins, including those in the Grade 3 Fall Highweight Handicap, Gravesend Stakes, Grade 3 Toboggan Stakes and Grade 3 Tom Fool Handicap.
He then finished eighth when traveling to Dubai for the Golden Shaheen but rebounded with a win in his first start back in the States. He finished fourth and fifth in the Vanderbilt and Forego before a close runner-up effort in the Vosburgh to set him up for a run at the 2015 Breeders' Cup Sprint.
The son of Salute the Sarge is out of multiple graded stakes winner Sarasota (ARG), making him a half brother to graded stakes winner Sarah's Secret.
