The Greathouse family's Glencrest Farm has purchased an interest in grade I winner Booklet from owner John C. Oxley for stallion duty at the Midway, Ky., farm starting in 2004 for a fee of $6,500 live foal. Booklet, a son of prominent Florida stallion Notebook, was retired from racing in May with a record of seven wins from 14 races and earnings of $989,460.
"We believe Booklet fits the mold of the Glencrest stallions who have proved most successful--Full Out, Clever Trick, Mining, and American Chance," David Greathouse said. "He's a miler with enough speed for two turns, and those are the kind of horses who make the best stallions. He has a powerful hip and beautiful shoulder. Plus, he's a Bold Ruler with no Seattle Slew blood and from the immediate family of Crafty Prospector."
Booklet, who was produced from the Bob's Dusty mare Crafty Bobbie, was Florida's Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male of 2002. He captured the Fountain of Youth Stakes (gr. I) and Holy Bull Stakes (gr. III), both at Gulfstream Park, and ran second in the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) at Keeneland. He also was a two-time stakes winner as a 2-year-old.
