Jubilee Farm, owned by Tim and Renee Dodd and located near Citra, Fla., announced a stallion roster consisting of stakes winners Scottish Halo, Awesome of Course, and Runspastum, plus stakes-placed Holiday Thunder and A. P. Five Hundred.
Six-year-old Scottish Halo (Jolie's Halo--Scottische, by Deputy Minister) was a stakes winner all three years he raced. A New York-bred champion, he scored his big win in the Laurel Futurity (gr. III) on the way to winning six of 14 races and earning $406,600. He will stand for a syndicate for $3,500.
A.P. Five Hundred, a 4-year-old son of A.P. Indy and a $700,000 Saratoga yearling, ran third in three stakes last year, including the Super Derby (gr. II) and Oklahoma Derby (gr. III). First in one of seven starts, he retired with earnings of $122,735. His dam, stakes producer Banner Dancer (by Danzig), is a half-sister to champion Sacahuista. He will stand for $3,000 on behalf of a partnership.
Three-year-old Awesome of Course, by Awesome Again and a half-brother to grade II winner Imperfect World, won the Western Borders Stakes at Calder Race Course by 11 lengths and two other Florida stakes. Overall, he captured five of 14 starts and earned $152,440. His dam, Mais Oui (by Lyphard), was a stakes winner in France. Bred and raced by Jacks or Better Farm, Awesome of Course will remain the farm's property and will stand for $2,500.
Five-year-old Holiday Thunder, who formerly stood at Signature Stallions near Ocala, Fla., placed in three graded stakes, including the Brown and Williamson Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (gr. II) and Lane's End Breeders' Futurity (gr. II). The 5-year-old son of Thunder Gulch out of the Slew o' Gold mare Magical Holiday won two of 10 races and earned $197,213. He will stand for a syndicate for $2,500.
Six-year-old Runspastum (Woodman--Erandel, by Danzig) is scheduled to arrive at Jubilee following his retirement from racing for Jayeff B Stables. He has won seven of 38 races, including the Oceanport Handicap (gr. III), and earned $561,545. His fee will be $2,500.
