Calculator is one of those horses that racing fans can’t help but love. The gorgeous gray colt initially attracted attention on the Triple Crown trail as a two-year-old in 2014 and later as a tough and consistent contender in graded stakes races. His fanfare has never waned; even in his stud career, he is celebrated by fans and horsemen alike.
Pedigree & Early Life:
Calculator was bred by Ocala Stud and born in Florida on April 5, 2012. He is sired by In Summation, a Grade 1 winning son of Put It Back, and is out of the unraced Alphabet Soup mare Back to Basics.
Back to Basics has produced four winners from seven foals, including stakes winner Arms Runner. Calculator hails from a very nice female family. His 2nd dam Christy Love produced graded stakes winner Atticus Kristy as well as stakes winners Distorted Reality and Fiery Dancer. Calculator’s 3rd dam Amo produced With Every Wish, who is the maternal granddam of multiple Grade 1 winner Shackleford and the 3rd dam of Grade 1 winner Firenze Fire.
Furthermore, Calculator’s 4th dam Taminette is a full-sister to champion miler Known Fact and a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Tentam and Secrettame, the dam of the exceptional sire Gone West. Taminette herself produced A.P. Jet and multiple Grade 1 winner Tappiano.
Calculator has no inbreeding in his first four generations and is inbred 5x5 to Mr. Prospector and In Reality.
