Comeonmom, winner of the1998 Remsen Stakes (gr. II), will stand the 2002 breeding season at Linda Reading's Reading Farm in West Falls, N. Y. The six-year-old son of Jolie's Halo -- Single Blade, by Hatchet Man, is scheduled to arrive Feb. 20 at the farm. His fee will be $2,000 live foal.
Bred in Florida by Arthur Appleton, Comeonmom was purchased by Joseph and Winifred Greeleys' Sabine Stable for $60,000 at the 1997 Keeneland September yearling sale. Initially raced by the Greeleys and Bob and Nancy Kelly, Comeonmom broke his maiden at Calder in his second start, then placed second in three consecutive races, including Calder's In Reality division of the Florida Stallion Stakes. Shipped to New York for the Remsen, Comeonmom defeated previou New York graded winners Successful Appeal, Doneraile Court and Prime Directive plus Laurel Futurity winner Millions.
Later acquired by Darley Stud Management, Comeonmom placed third in two stakes in Dubai before retiring to stud for 2001. He earned $253,005.
Comeonmom is among nine winners produced from grade I winner Single Blade and descends from the female family of champion filly Grecian Queen and the late popular Florida stallion, Distinctive.
