Tu Brutus (CHI), a GSW son of Scat Daddy with a blistering fast 118 beyer, will enter stud at Pope McLean’s Crestwood Farm in Kentucky for the 2018 season. Tu Brutus will be the only son of Scat Daddy to stand in Kentucky.
In 2017, Scat Daddy was the world’s leading sire of two year olds by both earnings and Grade-1 winners. The 118 beyer speed figure earned by Tu Brutus was the third highest beyer figure earned by any horse of 2017. It was also only one point off of the 119 beyer figure that Arrogate earned with his track record breaking victory in the G1 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes.
“Scat Daddy has been an undeniable global force, and unfortunately was lost too soon,” Pope McLean said. “We have been looking to stand a son of his and to tap into the precocity that he passes on. Tu Brutus was a star in the making and his 118 beyer validated that he was a Grade 1 talent on dirt. He has the type of physical and conformation that everyone wants, and we believe breeders will like what they see.”
He will stand as the property of a partnership for a fee of $5,000 LFSN. He will be available for inspection at Crestwood Farm’s Stallion Open House on Sunday, January 7th from 1:00 to 4:00 P.M. Please call the farm for more information.
