Dangerous Edge Winner Number 39 For Competitive Edge
Dangerous Edge (3c Competitive Edge x Slamin’ Dixie, by Grand Slam) became his sire’s 39th worldwide winner on Friday at Aqueduct with an impressive run from behind as the favorite.
Racing over six furlongs on the dirt, Dangerous Edge broke smoothly before dropping back and taking his place near the back of the field. Giving much of the field a big advantage with over 10 lengths Dangerous Edge and the lead, he made a huge move in the stretch to close quickly on the dueling leaders.
Flashing past them in the shadow of the wire, Dangerous Edge impressively won by 1¼ lengths for trainer George Weaver and owners Gatsas Stables, Parkland Thoroughbreds, and R.A. Hill Stable.
A $150,000 2-year-old purchase, W & T Thoroughbred Holdings-bred Dangerous Edge is the second foal from three-time winner Slamin’ Dixie, who is a half-sister to Canadian Champion Conquest Harlanate. Success runs in the family with their third dam, Famed Princess, the dam of Grade I winner Clear Choice.
Slamin’ Dixie also has an unnamed 2-year-old Vancouver colt.
The leading second-crop sire by winners and the sire of six stakes horses including four stakes winners, Competitive Edge is quickly rising as one of the best value sires in Kentucky.
