Bred and raced by R. David and Marilyn Randal’s Fallbrook Farm, Wild and Wicked is the only son of notable sire Wild Again standing in the Bluegrass. Wild and Wicked achieved national attention when he cruised to an easy victory in the $300,000 Ohio Derby-G2, defeating multiple graded stakes winner and track record-setter Midway Road. He was even money in the Ohio Derby and it was easy to see why. In his prior starts he had won his career debut at Keeneland by a widening 9-1/2 lengths. In his second start, which came at Churchill, Wild and Wicked again put his competition to rest, defeating eventual Eclipse Champion Horse of the Year Saint Liam by 2-3/4 lengths under a mild hand ride. Every horse in that Churchill Downs allowance went onto earn black type, making the ease with which he won all the more impressive.
As a sire, Wild and Wicked has produced impressive results from small crops. With only 51 foals of racing age, Wild and Wicked is the sire of four stakes winners (8% stakes winners from foals) and 33 individual winners (65% winners from foals). His average earnings index (AEI) stands at 1.25 (meaning his offspring earn 1.25 times the annual average earnings figure of all Thoroughbreds), impressive for a horse in his fee range. Even more impressive is his comparable index (CI), which is 1.65, comparable with, if not higher, than the majority of today’s most popular sires.
Wild and Wicked is by the successful sire and broodmare sire Wild Again. Known for his versatility, Wild Again’s 84 stakes winners had 80 different broodmare sires, and universally his progeny were notorious for having their sire’s bone, scope and durability. His top progeny include Champions Born Wild and Wilderness Song, as well as Elmhurst (Breeders’ Cup Sprint-G1; millionaire), Milwaukee Brew (MG1SW; millionaire; sire), Offlee Wild (G1SW; sire), Sarava (G1SW; sire), Shine Again (MG1SW), and Wild Rush (MG1SW; sire).
Wild and Wicked is out of multiple stakes winner Wicked Witchcraft, who has produced stakes winners The Wicked North (G1SW, sire), A Lady From Dixie (MSW), and Wicked Destiny (MSW), as well as stakes performers A Little Wicked.
