From Foal To Finish Line™: Archaggelos

ARCHAGGELOS, a bay colt by Temple City out of Mien by Nureyev, is a half-brother to dual classic winner Big Brown and was a $200,000 RNA for breeder and consignor Monticule, LLC.

Archaggelos has an A Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® and our 2016 Keeneland September Yearling Sale analysis showed that he had the potential to be a graded stakes winner.

Temple City, the sire of Archaggelos, was a graded stakes winner that compiled a 4-2-4 record in 15 starts.

Unraced as a two-year-old, Temple City won his only start as a three-year-old and followed that with a third-place finish in the Del Mar Handicap at the age of four.

Temple City earned graded stakes honors as a five-year-old with a win in the Cougar II Handicap (G3) and second-place finishes in both the American Handicap (G2) and the Hollywood Turf Cup Stakes (G1).
