(Edidted press release)
Grade I winner and successful sire Wagon Limit will return from Moon Lake Farm in Elm Grove, La., to stand in his native Florida at Bridlewood Farm near Ocala for $2,500.
Wagon Limit (Conquistador Cielo--Darlin Lindy, by Cox’s Ridge), is the sire of such prominent Florida-bred runners as sprinter Silver Wagon, a dual grade I winner with earnings of nearly $1.2 million; and Rehoboth, a multiple stakes winner and earner of $532,840.
Wagon Limit has sired nearly 80% winners from starters from six crops to race, for progeny earnings of more than $5.8 million. His average earnings per starter are around $65,192.
As a 4-year-old, Wagon Limit won the 1998 Jockey Club Gold Cup (gr. II). Earlier that year, he recorded the fastest Beyer Speed Figure run at a mile that season in winning the Winchester H. (gr. III) with a 118.
“We are pleased to stand this successful stallion for the Wagon Limit partnership,” said George Isaacs, general manager at Bridlewood. “If you are serious about breeding a racehorse, then you need to look extra close at Wagon Limit’s statistics. He’s a proven racehorse sire.”
