Wiki

Red Bullet (foaled 1997 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse best known for winning the 2000 Preakness Stakes. Bred and raced by auto parts magnate Frank Stronach, he was sired by Unbridled, the 1990 American Champion 3-Year-Old Male Horse and winner of that year's Breeders' Cup Classic. Out of the mare Cargo, who was a daughter of French multiple Grade 1 winner, Caro, Red Bullet was conditioned by Joe Orseno.

Red Bullet did not race at age two. Sent to the track at age three in 2000, he started six times, winning his first three starts. He then ran second to Fusaichi Pegasus in the 2000 Wood Memorial Stakes after which his handlers felt it was not in the colt's best interest to run in the Kentucky Derby. Instead, they prepared him for the Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the U.S. Triple Crown series, which he won by 3¾ lengths over Derby winner, Fusaichi Pegasus. Best at classic distances up to a 1¼ miles, Red Bullet's handlers did not enter him in the third leg of the Triple Crown, the 1½ mile Belmont Stakes.

Racing as a four-year-old, Red Bullet won an allowance race out of his three starts and at age five, raced another three times with his best result a win in the Foggy Road Stakes and a second place finish behind Sir Bear in the 2002 Skip Away Handicap.
