Wildcat Heir will move to Journeyman Stud
, who stood his first two seasons at Cloverleaf Farms II, will remain in Florida and stand in 2008 at Brent Fernung's Journeyman Stud.
The grade I winning son of Forest Wildcat
is owned by Taylor Made/WinStar and New Farm. His fee for 2007 was $8,000. No fee was announced for 2008.
Cloverleaf, owned by John Sykes, is in the process of relocating to Kentucky. Fernung, former general manager of Cloverleaf, recently announced he would also stand former Cloverleaf stallions Congrats
"We really appreciate the job that John Sykes and Brent did under the Cloverleaf banner, and we are looking forward to the continued management of Wildcat Heir under Brent's care. To date, he has done a fantastic job with the horse and his first foals are really looking the part," said Byron Rogers, director of stallion operations for Taylor Made. "His first foals are so good that we gave strong consideration to relocating the horse to Kentucky."
"I can't recall any stallion in Florida being as well received by breeders as Wildcat Heir
. I am delighted that Taylor Made, WinStar, and New Farm have seen fit to continue Wildcat Heir's career under my management. He has been a great stallion to manage and I look forward to him continuing his career in Florida. He gets an outstanding looking foal and should continue to be popular with breeders in Florida," said Fernung.
Out of the Pentelicus mare Penniless Heiress, Wildcat Heir
won the 2004 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash Handicap (gr. I). He retired with six wins in 12 starts and earnings of $424,460.
The stallions are at the old Sez Who Farm, now called Lucky Warrior Farm.
