Redeemed , a consistent son of grade I winner Include , will enter stud at Northview Stallion Station near Chesapeake City, Md., in 2013. The 4-year-old colt, retired from racing by owner Samantha Siegel's Jay Em Ess Stable in September, will stand for $3,000 stand and nurses.
"Redeemed is the entire package," said Northview's bloodstock manager Carl McEntee. "He was quick, and could carry that speed a distance while being extremely competitive against top quality fields. And he offers breeders plenty of options, being a grandson of Broad Brush out of a Ribot-line mare from great Calumet Farm and Tartan Farm families. He has a pedigree that is free of Raise a Native and Mr. Prospector and has one distant cross of Northern Dancer."
A stakes winner over the past two seasons, Redeemed was third or better in 12 of his 13 starts while amassing $832,140. He won his final three starts, all stakes.
Redeemed scored easily by 9 3⁄4 lengths over a sloppy track in the 1 1/8-mile Milesius Stakes at Belmont Park, and followed that with a 10-length romp in the Brooklyn Handicap (gr. II) at 1 1/2 miles. He concluded his career with a record-setting performance in the 1 1/2-mile Greenwood Cup Stakes (gr. III) at Parx Racing as the 1-10 favorite, in which he slashed nearly two seconds off the track record (completing the distance in 2:28.01) while defeating a field that included Not Abroad and Win Willy.
Counted among Redeemed's eight stakes wins or placings was a second to Caleb's Posse in the 6 1/2-furlong Amsterdam Stakes (gr. II) at Saratoga Race Course while defeating To Honor and Serve and Justin Phillip .
Redeemed also displayed his speed when getting his first win, a six-furlong maiden special at Gulfstream Park, scoring in 1:09.73. He won at 6 1/2 furlongs at Belmont Park, finishing in 1:15.82.
"He won from six furlongs to one and a half miles...that doesn't happen too often," Siegel told The Blood-Horse upon his retirement.
Redeemed was bred in Virginia by Wayne and Susie Chatfield-Taylor's Morgan's Ford Farm. He is out of the Pleasant Tap mare Early Mass, a half sister to stakes winners Kris's Prayer and The Texas Tunnel.
