“Joe R. Peacock, Jr.’s Senor Buscador, a Kentucky-bred son of Mineshaft with strong New Mexico roots, won the world’s richest Thoroughbred race, the February 24, $20-million Saudi Cup (G1) at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Ridden by Junior Alvarado for New Mexico-based trainer Todd Fincher, Senor Buscador went a one-turn 1 1/8  miles in 1:49.50 while defeating Ushba Tesoro (JPN) by a head bob. The 6-year-old stallion earned the $10 million winner’s share of the purse from his fifth stakes victory and first Grade 1 score.

Senor Buscador was bred by Joe Peacock Jr. and his father, the late Joe R. Peacock Sr. The stallion is the fifth winner from as many starters foaled by Rose’s Desert, a multiple stakes winning New Mexico-bred Desert God mare bred by Joe Peacock, Sr….”
