, a millionaire son of Honor Grades, has been moved to Arthur I. Appleton's Bridlewood Farm near Ocala, Fla. His 2005 fee of $4,000 is the same as last breeding season when he stood at John Sykes' Cloverleaf Farms II north of Ocala near Reddick.
Ten-year-old Honor Glide, who is owned by Bonnie Heath Farm, won such stakes as the Sword Dancer Invitational Handicap (gr. IT) and the three stakes that comprise the Mid-America Triple at Arlington Park. He captured the Arlington Classic (gr. IIT) in course-record-equaling time of 1:47.59 for 1 1/8 miles, then went on to complete the series by winning the PrimeCo American Derby (gr. IIT) and Secretariat Stakes (gr. IT). Overall, he won 11 of 38 races and earned $1,397,187.
Honor Glide, whose first foals arrived this year, was bred to 75 mares this year. His dam, Becky Branch (by Run the Gantlet), is a full sister to North American and French champion April Run.
