Grade II-winning millionaire Sir Shackleton, one of Pennsylvania’s leading sires in 2011, will stand this year at Indiana Stallion Station near Anderson, Ind.
Sir Shackleton, who previously stood at Dana Point Farm near Lenhartsville, Pa., ranked fourth on Pennsylvania’s 2011 second-crop sires’ list by progeny earnings. He has sired 13 winners including West Point Thoroughbreds' Enduring Star, who was stakes-placed in the Coronation Futurity at Woodbine.
A son of Miswaki—Naskra Colors, by Star de Naskra, Sir Shackleton set track records in two stakes including a 1:21.64 effort in the seven-furlong Richter Scale Breeders’ Cup Sprint Championship Handicap (gr. II). Sir Shackleton placed in four graded stakes, all in New York, including the Metropolitan Handicap (gr. I), the Woodward Stakes (gr. I), and the Whitney Handicap (gr. I). He retired having finished in the money 12 times out of 20 starts while earning more than $1.05 million.
Sir Shackleton joins Action This Day, Domestic Dispute , and Southern Success at the Indiana Stallion Station. His fee is $1,000.
