Flightline came on my radar after he won the Malibu Stakes by almost 12 lengths. Including the Malibu he had won his first three sprints by daylight. Six months later he took on Grade 1 winners in the Metropolitan at Belmont Park and won by 6 lengths. Trainer, John Sadler, decided to wait until September to try his colt at the classic distance of a mile and a quarter in Del Mar's Pacific Classic. He galloped in second until they passed the 5/8ths pole, and then it was all Flightline. Going into the far turn, he was three in front, and coming out of it the margin was 15. Down the stretch, his rider, Flavian Pratt, just shook the reins at his mount, and then let him ease up coming to the wire win by 19 1/4 lengths. The winning time was 1:59.28; if Pratt had continued to let him run, he would have set a new track record. Next came the Longines Breeders' Cup Classis at a mile and a quarter at Keeneland. Flightline broke sharply and laid second behind Life is Good running along in what looked like an effortless gallop. Approaching the quarter pole, Pratt asked him to run and peeked under his arm to see if anybody was coming, and when he saw that they we're, he wrapped up on the colt and let him canter home by 8 1/4 lengths.
Flightline won all six of his races with a combined margin of 71 lengths. His connections retired him the next day and he is going to the breeding shed, where he will demand $200,000 per mare.
