(2019 G, Pioneerof the Nile-Fancy Day (Ire) by Shamardal)

Owner Kretz Racing LLC was all in on this beautiful son of Pioneerof the Nile at the 2021 OBS April 2yr old sale. Turned over to trainer George Papaprodromou, he trained and showed promise during the summer of his 2yr old year at Del Mar on the dirt but a switch to the grass got his maiden win during the Del Mar fall meet, that was then followed up with a placing in the G3 Cecil B. DeMile Stake on the Breeders Cup undercard. It did not take long after that for his first stakes win to come, taking the Listed $100,000 Eddie Logan on the turf at Santa Anita to bring in 2022 on Jan 2. A switch back to the dirt in the G3 Robert B. Lewis resulted in a credible 2nd place finish however subsequent dirt races were not highly productive. A switch back to the grass in the Cinema Stakes at Santa Anita resulted in a 2nd place finish. Gelding and a bit of time, turned him into a G3 winner of the La Jolla Handicap at Del Mar on 8/7/22.
