Pretty Wild, a multiple stakes winner and half-brother to Jerome Handicap (gr. II) winner Discreet Cat, will stand his first season in 2007 at Peter Alafoginis's Northern Tier Farm near Lawrenceville, Pa.
As a 2-year-old, Pretty Wild ran second in the Hopeful Stakes (gr. I) to Sky Mesa
at Saratoga and second in the Futurity Stakes (gr. I) to Whywhywhy
at Belmont Park. Later in his career, he captured the Mr. Prospector and Frisk Me Now Stakes at Monmouth Park and also placed in the Jerome and Artax Handicaps.
Pretty Wild, who initially raced for his breeder, E. Paul Robsham and later for Robsham's widow, Joyce, won or placed in 16 of 18 races and earned $398,280. In addition to being a half-brother to millionaire Discreet Cat, he is a half-brother to the dam of the stakes winner Concorde's Edge.
A 6-year-old son of Wild Again, Pretty Wild is out of the grade I stakes-winning Private Account mare Pretty Discreet. His fee is $3,000.
