Expectations were high when A.P. Indy drew a bid of $2.9 million at the 1990 Keeneland July sale. Two years later in the 1992 Breeders' Cup Classic at Gulfstream Park, the son of one Triple Crown winner (Seattle Slew), and grandson of another (Secretariat) fulfilled all expectations. Content to sit off a blistering pace, A.P. Indy emerged in deep stretch to win the 1992 Classic by a convincing three lengths.
Jockey Eddie Delahoussaye won his third Breeders' Cup victory, and it was the fifth for trainer Neil Drysdale.
With the Classic victory to compliment Grade 1 wins in the Santa Anita Derby and the Belmont Stakes, A.P. Indy was named 3-year-old champion and Horse of the Year.
He was the morning line favorite for the 1992 Kentucky Derby but was scratched on the morning of the race with a foot bruise. With his royal pedigree, A.P. Indy proved brilliant at stud, siring 27 graded stakes winners.
