Capixaba looks unstoppable at Laurel Park, running his winning streak to six in a row at the Maryland track on Dec. 17. The 3-year-old son of Wildcat Heir was much the best, winning by a geared-down 2 3/4-lengths after opening up by six in the stretch.

Capibaxa finished the six furlongs in a very quick 1:09.72, earning a career best 92 Beyer Speed Figure. The winning streak started back in Sept. 18 when he was ridden for the first time by Forest Boyce. The pair has been unbeatable since, making Capixaba one of the winningest horses in the country in 2010.

Bred in Florida by Debra Posgai and Donna Russell, Capixaba sold at the 2009 OBS Select 2-year-old sale for $50,000. His lifetime record now stands at 7-2-1 from 13 starts, with earnings of $84,008 for Rebate Stable.

Wildcat Heir is Florida's leading sire of 2010, with progeny earnings in excess of $4.4 million. He is the only Florida stallion above the $4 million mark. He is also the nation's second leading second-crop sire by money earned and leads the category in terms of winners, with 84, twelve more than his closest competitor.
