San Miguel, CA (October 22, 2019)-Reverse shuttler Sir Prancealot , who will be at Rancho San Miguel in California for 2020 Northern Hemisphere season, will stand for $15,000 to approved mares, the farm announced Oct. 22.
Imported progeny by the Irish-bred son of Tamayuz have made an impact on American turf racing this year, led by three-time graded stakes winner and millionaire Beau Recall, winner of the Longines Churchill Distaff Turf Mile Stakes (G2T) and Yellow Ribbon Handicap (G2T) this year and runner-up in both the Longines Just a Game Stakes (G1T) and Rodeo Drive Stakes (G1T). The 5-year-old mare is being aimed for the Dec. 1 Matriarch Stakes (G1T) at Del Mar.
Other top U.S runners include two-time grade 3 winner and grade 1-placed Lady Prancealot and Ginger Nut, who captured black-type at Keeneland in the Limestone Turf Sprint Stakes.
“This is a unique situation in that Sir Prancealot is already proven to be an elite stallion in North America before even standing here. It’s unprecedented to have a horse with the hype of a young incoming freshman stallion along with proven graded stakes results from small crops,” said Adrian Gonzalez, manager of the Sir Prancealot syndicate.
Sir Prancealot stood at Cornerstone Stud in South Australia during the Southern Hemisphere breeding season. He has been represented by seven black-type winners to date, of which four have won graded/group stakes.
