Taylor Made, WinStar, and New Farm venture Stallion Wildcat Heir, a Grade I winner by Storm Cat's son Forest Wildcat, will take up residence at Brent Fernung's Journeyman Stud near Belleview, Fla., for the 2008 breeding season.
"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 Stallions. "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 Brent Fernung, previous manager of Cloverleaf Farms.
Wildcat Heir will have his first crop of weanlings sell this November.
