Foaled: April 13, 2013
Sire: Wilburn
Dam: Lesseroftwoevils by Dixie Union

Put this colt's yearling body and conformation on any top 25 sire's pedigree and he sells for
$100,000+ at Keeneland. Unfortunately for the seller, this colt's sire, Wilburn, received a
lukewarm reception by the buyers of his first crop of yearlings. Fortunately for us, we
purchased what we believe was one of the better athletes presented on the day. Rikki Tikki
Taxi has a long finish line seeking neck that ties in well to a muscular shoulder and a
complementing strong angle on his rear hip. The consignor said he was a leader in the fields
with his fellow yearlings and kept many of the others running…or should we say chasing.

Rikki Tikki Taxi has matured well and performed great on the track since first introduced.
He looks like a long-bodied two turn horse. His sire won the Grade II Indiana Derby, won
five of nine starts, and was the favorite for the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile before sustaining an
injury in the race that led to an early retirement to stud. He did all his best work at a mile to
8.5 furlongs. Our colt's dam won more than $115,000 and also performed best on dirt over
a mile. However, she did break her maiden prior to her 25-month birthday so the potential is
there for early development.

Initial impressions would lead us to believe this horse will grow into a classic miler. He has
a decent turn of foot and may have picked up a little of the Carson City influence in his
pedigree. If you are looking for a versatile horse with lots of upside, Rikki Tikki Taxi may
be the perfect fit.
