TEXAS RED SIRES FIRST TWO FOALS!

Category : News , Stallions , TEXAS RED

Texas Red, a G1-Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner and millionaire, has sired his first two foals born on January 22nd and 23rd respectively.

The first was a colt foaled in New York for Sandee Schultz. He is out of Betty’s Baroness (Smarty Jones), who is a half-sister to multiple G1-winning millionaire, Excellent Meeting ($1,402,396), as well as black-type stakes winners, Crowning Meeting ($514,732) and Crown of Crimson ($161,426). “He’s a big foal, stood up right away, very nice legs on this colt. I’m very pleased!” said Schultz.

The second was a filly foaled in Iowa for Jeff Hartz. She is out of Crystal Lake Drive (Giant’s Causeway), who is a half-sister to black-type stakes placed, Fleet Dude ($81,875). Crystal Lake Drive is out of a half-sister to Champion 3yo and successful sire, Afleet Alex ($2,765,800); coincidentally also the sire of Texas Red. She is also a half-sister to G2-placed Stakes winner, Unforgettable Max ($384,079), black-type stakes placed, Stormin Maggy, and also to Curlin Hawk, the dam of recent G3 Pilgrim winner, Seabhac. “I’m very happy with the result of this mating. This is a big healthy filly, a lot of substance to her; lots of leg and bone and very strong.” said Hartz.

Texas Red was a brilliant two year old and won the $2,000,000 G1 Breeder’s Cup Juvenile by 6-1/2 lengths. He earned a 104 beyer and also ran the fastest Breeders’ Cup Juvenile in the last 9 years. He was ranked co-#1 on the 2014 Experimental Free Handicap; tied with American Pharoah and was second by a very narrow margin in the voting for Eclipse Champion two year old. As a three year old, Texas Red won the $600,000 G2 Jim Dandy at Saratoga, defeating Frosted. He retired to Crestwood in 2017 with earnings of $1,767,300 and bred a quality first book of mares that consisted of 49% Black-type runners and/or Producers.

Texas Red stands at Crestwood Farm for $7,500 LFSN

TU BRUTUS TO STAND AT CRESTWOOD IN 2018

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.
