    THE Kentucky Sires’ Stakes champions for 2018 were determined in eight $250,000 Finals The Red Mile during the weekend with Hurrikane Emperor the standout.

    By completing an impressive victory, Hurrikane Emperor became North America’s first sub-1:50 freshman this year when stopping the clock in 1:49.6.

    Winner of the New Jersey Sires’ Stakes Final at the Meadowlands earlier in the year, Hurrikane Emperor finished second, first, and fourth from off-the-pace in his preliminary legs.

    In the rich decider, however, driver Daniel Dube put the son of Hurrikane Kingcole on the engine, rolling to the top with 27.2-second opening quarter and continuing on to a 55.4 half and 1:22.6 three-quarters.

    In the lane Hurrikane Emperor put away a first-up Major Deception and Blood Money couldn’t reach from the two-hole trip as Hurrikane Emperor went on to win by a half-length. Captain Trevor rallied for third.

    John McDermott junior trains the colt for owners-breeders Jonathan Klee Racing, Kuhen Racing LLC., and Pegasis Investment Group and co-owner Lind Racing Stable LLC.

    Hurrikane Emperor’s sister Hurrikane Empress won last year’s New Jersey Sires’ Stakes Final for two-year-old pacing fillies.

    Hurrikane Emperor has won six of his eight attempts for earnings of $214,400.
