Greek Sun retires to the Maryland Stallion Station to begin his stud career in 2008.

Greek Sun, a grade II stakes-winning son of Danzig, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Maryland Stallion Station (Donald Litz, president) near Glyndon, Md. His fee is $3,500.

A $425,000 Fasig-Tipton Florida February 2-year-old, Greek Sun raced for Peter Angelos and was campaigned solely on turf. He won his first three starts, including the Hill Rise Stakes at 2 and the Cinema Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. IIIT) at 3. In just his fourth start, he ran second in the Secretariat Stakes (gr. IT) to subsequent champion Kitten's Joy, and two races later, he won the Oak Tree Derby (gr. IIT).

Six-year-old Greek Sun retired with four wins from eight starts and earnings of $343,097 for trainer Bobby Frankel.

Bred in Kentucky by E.K. Gaylord II and Cheyenne Stables, he is out of the stakes-winning Trempolino mare Sunlit Silence, who is a half-sister to graded winners Madame Pandit and Fiscally Speaking.
