Basin (by Liam’s Map out of Appenzell, by Johannesburg) was a wide-margin winner of Saratoga’s historic, stallion-making Hopeful Stakes-G1 as a 2YO, and enters stud in 2022 at Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky as part of their Share the Upside program.
Following his top-class juvenile campaign, Basin was placed in the G1 Arkansas Derby behind Charlatan on the Kentucky Derby trail, as well as in the G2 Rebel behind Nadal. Later that season he was 2nd to Yaupon in Saratoga’s G2 Amsterdam back sprinting at 6 furlongs, and as a 4YO he triumphed in Gulfstream’s Sir Shackleton Stakes.
Basin is from the first crop of Liam’s Map (the leading son at stud of Unbridled’s Song), and is a half-brother to G3 winner and millionaire Rise Up. He was a $150,000 yearling purchase.
