Explode was ridden to victory by 2018 leading rider Amedeo Perez in the final premier race for two year olds in the $75,000.00 Ascot Graduation. The flashy chestnut gelding purchased by Ole Nielsen as a weanling in Kentucky for a modest $2,500.00 trained at Canmor Farms. The juvenile Explode started 5 times, 2 wins, 2 seconds, and once third. Turned out for a well deserved break, he will resume training in January at Canmor Farms in preparation for the 2019 Hastings race season.
