Champion Action This Day will return to Castleton Lyons (Shane Ryan, president) near Lexington, where he started his stallion career. He stood the past two breeding seasons at B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm near Lexington.

A total of 27 of his runners are winners.
Eight-year-old Action This Day is by Kris S. out of grade II stakes-placed Najecam (by Trempolino). A fee will be announced later.
