Bertram, Elaine and Richard Kleins homebred Country Day will enter stud at Crestwood Farm in Kentucky for the 2013 season.

Country Day was a multiple stakes winner of $503,829 and ran a close second in the Grade II Breeders Cup Turf Sprint in 2011. Under the tutelage of Steve Margolis, he won stakes on all three surfaces, at nine different tracks until he was six years old. He recorded two triple digit beyers on dirt, including a 105 as a three year old. He won seven races total and was in the money in 13 of his 19 lifetime starts.

Country Day is the classiest horse I ever trained, said Margolis.He was very fast and versatile; winning stakes on all three surfaces. I look forward to watching his impact on future generations.

Country Day is by leading sire Speightstown and out of the graded stakes winning mare Hidden Assets. He is a half brother to Grade III placed stakes winners Due Date ($276,788) and Good Deed ($156,143). Country Day is tail female to Calumet Farms matriarch, Blue Delight. This outstanding female family has produced notable sires such as Alydar, Grand Slam, Oratorio (IRE), Codex, etc. Currently there are 67 stakes horses under his first four dams, which include 40 stakes winners, 23 graded stakes horses and 13 graded stakes winners.

“Country Day was a very talented horse with tons of class as shown on the racetrack, said Richard Klein. We look forward to breeding many of our broodmares to him. We are very excited to witness Country Day’s offspring in races in the future.”

He will stand for a fee of $5,000 stands and nurses. Country Day will also participate in the Share the Upside program. Inspections are welcomed.
