About The Horse

Florida-bred Axelrod was purchased privately by Phoenix Thoroughbreds in October after the former Mike McCarthy trained runner turned in a career-best to finish second in the Grade One Pennsylvania Derby.

He is the highest earning progeny of Warrior's Reward, and his Grand Sire is champion Medaglia D'Oro, so there is every likelihood he'll should an excellent stallion prospect when the time comes.

In addition to being a two-time graded winner Axelrod ran a solid race in the Breeders Cup Classic of 2018 and followed that by lining up in the Dubai World Cup. He is now trained by Dubai based Salem bin Ghadayer and is likely to return to action in November 2019.
