Peachtree Stable's Invisible Ink, runner-up in the 2001 Kentucky Derby (gr. I), will stand at Jim and Sheila DiMare's Rising Hill Farm in Ocala, Fla. The son of Thunder Gulch out of the Conquistador Cielo mare Conquistress, who was retired last year, will stand for a fee of $3,500.
"We had been looking to syndicate him, but I wasn't happy with any of the
proposals," Peachtree president John Fort said. "They weren't as appealing as the opportunity to stand him myself. This is an exciting venture to have a stallion starting out. He's going to be bred to a lot of mares, and it only takes a little success to get a stallion on his way. He already has a recognizable name, and breeders are aware of his talent as a racehorse."
