E Dubai , who has 2010 progeny earnings of just over $3 million, has been purchased by Tarry Bratton’s Ghost Ridge Farms for stallion duty in 2011 at the Felton, Pa., nursery. Twelve-year-old E Dubai formerly stood at Sheikh Mohammed’s Darley near Lexington.
A New York grade II winner, E Dubai (Mr. Prospector—Words of War, by Lord At War) has sired 18 stakes winners and the earners of $15.5 million, including Italian champion Once More Dubai and millionaire Desert Code, who won three graded stakes and the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint. E Dubai is the sire of additional graded stakes winners Accredit, Buy the Barrel, Dubious Miss, High Heels, and Mr. Fantasy. One of E Dubai’s 2-year-olds, Behold de Buy, won this year’s $100,000 Gold Rush Futurity.
"We are very happy to add a stallion of E Dubai's caliber to our roster,” said general manager Carl McEntee. “We hope to build on Darley's success as he continues his career as one of the best stallions in Pennsylvania.”
E Dubai’s fee will be announced later.
