The first foal sired by Destin was born at Saratoga Glen Farm for breeder Amber Cobb on January 11. The dark bay colt is the first foal out of the placed Take Charge Indy mare Jurere, who is from the immediate family of Grade 1 millionaires Summer Squall, Court Vision and champion A.P. Indy. Jurere was bred in New York by SF Racing Group, Inc.

A full brother to Grade 1 stakes-winning sire Creative Cause, Destin set a new track record in the Grade 2 Tampa Bay Derby winning by a length going 1:42 4/5 in the 1 1/16 mile contest. Three months later he was defeated a nose by Creator in the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes. Destin retired with 5 wins, 2 seconds and 2 thirds in 15 starts with earnings of $947,800.

Destin is a 5-year-old son of champion sire Giant’s Causeway out of Grade 1 millionaire and graded-stakes producing Dream Of Summer who defeated Ashado in the G1 Apple Blossom. Destin is also full brother to graded stakes winning filly Vexatious, as well as half-brother to black type placed producer Taboo.

Destin stands at Sequel Stallions New York for Gainesway Farm, Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Twin Creeks Farm and Sequel. Destin, who bred 84 mares in 2019, will be available for inspection at the Sequel Open House on January 19.
