Grade I winner Whywhywhy
will follow his sire, Mr. Greeley
, to Gainesway Farm in Lexington, Ky. to continue his stud career, beginning with the 2006 breeding season.
"As a grade I winner at two by a top young stallion, Whywhywhy is positioned to succeed at stud," said Antony Beck, president of Gainesway Farm.
Trained by Patrick Biancone, Whywhywhy broke his maiden by 5 1/2 lengths in the Flash Stakes (gr. III). He had continued success by easily winning Saratoga's Sanford Stakes (gr. II) and Belmont's $200,000 Futurity Stakes (gr. I) defeating such horses as Pretty Wild, Truckle Feature, and Valid Video. As a 3-year-old, he placed in the Swale Stakes (gr. III) and retired with a career record of 9-3-1-1 and earnings of $315,015.
"We are excited about this grade I-winning son of Mr. Greeley joining his sire here at Gainesway. It's especially noteworthy that Mr. Greeley is already emerging as a sire of sires himself, having produced a leading freshman sire in El Corredor
," said Gainesway's Michael Hernon.
Whywhywhy's first foals arrived in 2005. His 2006 stud fee will be announced in October.
