A talented if unlucky juvenile runner, Raging Torrent broke his maiden on debut at Del Mar but had to settle for third, fourth and fourth respectively behind ‘TDN Rising Stars’ in Prince of Monaco (Speightstown) in the GIII Best Pal Stakes and the GI Del Mar Futurity and Muth (Nyquist) in the GI American Pharoah Stakes. Brought back as a 3-year-old on the grass, he made a good account of himself when second in the John Shear Stakes two back April 7. He then broke through in a big way over course and distance, posting a 104 Beyer Speed Figure facing optional claimers on the Kentucky Derby undercard May 4. Back into stakes company Sunday, the even-money favorite was hustled right the front from his far outside draw and was allowed to go loose on the lead, opening up a comfortable margin back to Otto the Conqueror in second. Facing only a mild challenge from World Record off the far turn, Raging Torrent turned back any attempts to close into his lead and stayed strong to win alone on the wire. The sixth stakes winner for Maximus Mischief, Raging Torrent has a 2-year-old half-brother by Honor A.P. named Contra Mundum and a yearling half-sister by Collected.
