La Mission Stallion Station in Argentina has purchased Honour and Glory
from Ashford Stud and will lease the 13-year-old stallion to stand at Wintergreen Stallion Station in Midway, Ky., for Northern Hemisphere breeding seasons.
The son of Relaunch will stand the Southern Hemisphere breeding season at La Mission Stallion Station, where he arrived Monday. A fee for the Northern Hemisphere seasons has not been established.
Nicolas Quintana of Argentina Bloodstock Agency brokered the deal.
Honour and Glory has sired 28 stakes winners, including champion 2-year-old filly Caressing and his progeny have earned more than $28.8 million. His first crop of foals in Argentina are 2-year-olds this year.
"Being by Relaunch, Honour and Glory is a great outcross to most of the mares in America, and Nicolas has told me that his 2-year-olds in Argentina are outstanding," said Wintergreen co-owner John Greely IV.
Honour and Glory sired 457 winners from 678 starters who earned $28,851,992 through Monday, including 2000 champion two-year-old filly Caressing and 27 other stakes winners.
The winner of six of 17 starts, Honour and Glory earned $1,202,942. His victories included the Metropolitan Handicap (gr. I).
