Honour and Glory, a former leading sire of 2-year-olds, will stand in 2010 for a fee of $6,500 at Tarry Bratton’s Ghost Ridge Farm near Felton, Pa. Before shuttling to Argentina for this year’s Southern Hemisphere breeding season, he stood at the Greely brothers’ Wintergreen Stallion Station near Midway, Ky.
A 16-year-old son of Relaunch, Honour and Glory is represented by the earners of $3.4 million this year. His relocation to Pennsylvania will place him second on the state’s sire’s list behind Jump Start, who also was relocated to stand at Ghost Ridge in 2010.
Honour and Glory was North America’s leading sire of 2-year-olds as a first-crop stallion in 2000. He has sired 116 stakes horses and the earners of $48.3 million. His 57 stakes winners include six champions, among them Caressing, the 2000 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) winner, and Dubai champion Honour Devil.
A millionaire on the racetrack, Honour and Glory scored his big win in the 1996 Metropolitan Handicap (gr. I) and won three grade II stakes during his career. He placed in seven graded events, including the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (gr. I).
