Shackleford to be available for viewing at Darby Dan
RSS Feeds Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Multiple Grade 1 winner Shackleford will be available to breeders for viewing at Darby Dan Farm in Lexington this Friday through Sunday between the time of 10 am and 3 pm. The 4-year-old colt has not yet been retired from racing, although plans remain for him to stand at Darby Dan in 2013.

Darby Dan is in the process of booking mares to Shackleford for his upcoming stallion career, and hopes that all serious breeders will come out to the farm to inspect him this weekend.

“We wanted to give breeders the opportunity to see him,” said Robert Hammond, General Manager of Darby Dan. “Ever since his Met Mile win, the interest has been gratifying, and we anticipate a strong initial book of mares from accomplished breeders.”

Trained by Dale Romans, Shackleford won the Preakness S. (G1) last year as a 3-year-old. He returned in 2012 to defeat a top field in the Met Mile (G1), and bested champion sprinter Amazombie in the Churchill Downs S. (G2) this year as a 4-year-old. He's earned $2,824,047 to date for owners Michael Lauffer, Bill Cubbedge and Phillips Racing Partnership.
