A dmiral Tom has made history as the first and only Appaloosa to win the Speedhorse Paint & Appaloosa Triple Crown High Point. The 2016 Oklahoma-bred gelding by Red Storm Cat (QH) and out of Eyesa Knockout was bred and is owned by Gary Vaughan of Coalgate, Oklahoma, trained by Luis Villafranco and is a full brother to racing sensation Major Tom. He is sixth generation Wego Melody on his distaff side, making him part of a dynasty of an Appaloosa racing bloodline that began with Wego Melody and includes such ApHC Hall of Fame greats as: Geneo JJ, Scooter Bug G., Easy We Go, We Go Easy, Some Kinda Easy, Wego For Cash, and We Go Charge. The Speedhorse Paint & Appaloosa Triple Crown consists of three Grade-1 stakes races. The first leg is 350 yards at Remington Park in Oklahoma City, followed by another 350-yarder at Fair Meadows Track in Tulsa and finishes in the fall in 400 yards contested at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. For his Triple Crown success he garnered $5,000, a trophy and a custom belt buckle. Admiral Tom was also named Remington Park Champion Appaloosa and his total earnings as a 2-year-old stand at $87,042. Congratulations to the Admiral and all his connections!
