The super-fast son of Cam’s Card Shark out of Blazing Yankee, Hurrikane KingCole, won 14 out of 49 career races and earned $582,807 with a lifetime mark of 1:47.6. He is credited with the fastest mile ever seen at Mohawk at 1:46.2 after missing the race start.
Here are some comments from his trainer and drivers:
“Hurrikane KingCole is the fastest and most powerful horse I’ve ever driven. He gait was effortless and sitting behind him was awe inspiring.”
“Hurrikane KingCole possesses the scariest turn of speed I’ve ever driven. He is the most impressive looking and moving horse I’ve seen.”
“His gait is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. His front leg stands so far out beyond his nose when he’s in full gear, it’s ridiculous. He wears a 64-inch hobble, but he strides out so far that it’s not a true measurement of his gait. That’s what really made him special. He’s the best. He’s the reason I get up every day to come to the barn. l love the personality. He’s just such a pleasure to be around. He likes what he does; he likes us; he’s just a happy-go-lucky horse. He’s just awesome. If you have a “NEED FOR SPEED” for your broodmares, then this is your man."
