Canadian Bound (foaled 1975 in Kentucky) was the first Thoroughbred yearling racehorse ever to be sold for more than US$1 million. Bred by Texas oilman, Nelson Bunker Hunt, his dam was Charming Alibi who was also the dam of Hunt's great Hall of Fame filly, Dahlia. He was part of the first crop from the legendary U.S. Triple Crown winner, Secretariat.
There was much excitement over the unnamed colt when he was sent to the 1976 Keeneland July sale. The auction bidding for the yearling not only broke the $1 million barrier for the first time, but he ending up being sold for $1.5 million to Canadians, Ted Burnett and Hill 'n' Dale Farms' John Sikura, Jr. 
On the track
Sent to race in France with trainer Maurice Zilber, Canadian Bound began racing at age three. He finished out of the money in all three of his 1978 starts. At age four, he was sent to Hollywood Park Racetrack in California where in the final race of his career, he finished fourth and earned US$1,050, the only purse money of his career. 
Retired to stud, in 1982 Canadian Bound was standing at the Stallion Station near Lexington, Kentucky. He was not successful as a sire.
