Temple City , who recently retired as the only track record-setting son of Dynaformer at stud, will stand the 2011 breeding season at B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm near Lexington for $5,000 stands and nurses. Temple City will be eligible for Spendthrift’s Share the Upside program.
The Share the Upside program offers breeders the opportunity to earn a lifetime breeding right in Temple City by committing to breed one mare in 2011 at his 2011 fee. Once the mare has the resulting foal in 2012 and the stud fee is paid on the stands and nurses agreement, the breeder will have earned a lifetime breeding right. There will be no additional cost, and the breeding right will be for the life of the stallion.
“Temple City is a perfect candidate for our Share the Upside program,” Hughes said. “He has the conformation, track record, and pedigree. His sire, Dynaformer, and close kin, Malibu Moon , both started their respective stud careers very modestly before becoming the superstars they are today.”
Temple City’s dam, Curriculum (by Danzig), is a half sister to Spendthrift stallion Malibu Moon.
At Del Mar in 2010, Temple City set a track record with a wire-to-wire win in the Cougar II Handicap (gr. III), defeating a field that included grade I winner Richard's Kid. In his final start, Temple City missed by a head in the Hollywood Turf Cup Stakes (gr. IT) in November after setting the pace.
During his career, Temple City won or placed in 10 of 15 races and earned $326,400.
