Acclamation (horse)


Dec 15, 2021

Acclamation (foaled 16 May 2006) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse and sire. After showing promising, but unremarkable, form in his first two seasons of racing, he emerged as a top-class turf performer in 2010 when he won the Jim Murray Memorial Handicap and the Charles Whittingham Handicap. In the following season, he improved again, repeating his wins in the Jim Murray Handicap and the Charles Whittingham Handicap and adding wins in the Eddie Read Stakes, Pacific Classic (on a synthetic track) and the Clement L. Hirsch Turf Championship. At the end of the year, he was voted American Champion Older Male Horse. In an abbreviated 2012 season, he won a third Charles Whittingham Handicap and a second Eddie Read Stakes before being retired after winning his last seven races.

. . . Acclamation (horse) . . .

Acclamation is a bay horse with a white star and a white sock on his left hind leg. He was bred in California by Bud Johnston’s, Old English Rancho. He was sired by Unusual Heat who won the Amethyst Stakes, Glencairn Stakes and the Platinum Stakes in Ireland[2] before becoming a successful breeding stallion in California.[3] His dam Winning In Style was a granddaughter of Solidity, who was bought for $1,250 by Old English Rancho’s founder Ellwood Johnson.[4] She was a descendant of the broodmare Thorn Apple, making her a distant relative of I’ll Have Another.[5]

Bud Johnston raced the horse in partnership with his wife Judy and Peter and Mary Hilvers. Acclamation was trained throughout his racing career by Donald Warren and usually raced in a red shadow roll.

Acclamation began his racing career at Hollywood Park Racetrack in late 2008 when he finished unplaced in two maiden races before opening his account in a similar event on December 21.[6]

In 2009, Acclamation began his season in allowance races finishing third at Hollywood Park and second at Del Mar racetrack before winning at Del Mar in August. He failed to win in his remaining six races that year but finished third in the Del Mar Derby, Hollywood Derby and San Gabriel Handicap.
