Came Home (foaled in 1999) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse that is now retired to stud. He was sired by the great stallion Gone West, who was recently pensioned at Mill Ridge Farm, the former home of Barbaro and the current home of his full brother Nicanor. Came Home is out of the graded stakes winning mare, Nice Assay.
Came Home got his name after a series of failed attempts in the sales ring, thus he was always coming home. One of these unfortunate sales included Came Home getting spooked and falling down. According to witnesses, the colt got right back up again as though nothing had happened. And nothing did. He would later turn out to be a great racehorse and a winner of $1,835,940 in career earnings.
At three he won the Pacific Classic Stakes (Gr. 1), the Santa Anita Derby (Gr. 1), the Swaps Stakes (Gr. 2), the San Rafael Stakes (Gr. 2), the San Vicente Stakes (Gr. 2), and the Affirmed Handicap (Gr. 3)
