Multiple stakes-winning millionaire Repent, who was retired earlier this year because of an injured tendon, has been sold by Jerry and Feye Bach's Select Stable to Cloverleaf Farm in Ocala, Fla.

A 4-year-old son of Louis Quatorze, Repent was a divisional leader as a 3-year-old following wins in the Risen Star Stakes (gr. III) and Louisiana Derby (gr. II). However, he was knocked off the Triple Crown trail when a bone chip was discovered following a second-place finish to War Emblem in the Illinois Derby (gr. II).

"We are thrilled to add Repent to our stallion roster. His precocity and great looks make him a perfect fit for us. He was Derby favorite and arguably one of the best horses of his generation" said Brent Fernung, Cloverleaf's general manager.

A stud fee has not been determined.

Repent returned to the races last year and finished second to Medaglia d'Oro in the Travers Stakes (gr. I). His final start was a seventh-place finish in the Jockey Club Gold Cup (gr. I) a month later, after which the tendon injury was discovered. Repent, who is out of the Cipayo mare Baby Grace, retired with five wins in 10 starts with four placings and earned $1,255,660.

Bred by Taylor Made Farm, Repent is a half brother to two stakes winners including Canadian champion King Ruckus. Steve Castagnola of Taylor Made brokered the deal. The sale price was not disclosed.
