A. U. Miner, winner of the 2010 Greenwood Cup at Philadelphia Park (now Parx Racing) will enter stud for the 2014 season in Indiana. He will stand at Six Oaks Stable in Terre Haute.

According to the farm's owner, Jessica Came, his fee has yet to be determined.

Bred in Kentucky by Ten Broeck Farm, the 8-year-old son of Mineshaft   is out of the Argentine mare Clerical Etoile, by The Watcher, making A. U. Miner a half brother to three-time grade I winner Star Parade, an earner of more than $1.2 million.

Racing for late owner Don L. Benge, the former Clark Hanna trainee holds a record of 4-2-4 from 25 his starts. Included among those is a third-place finish in the 2010 Breeders' Cup Marathon (gr. III) under jockey Calvin Borel at Churchill Downs.

Returning to Churchill and the Marathon in 2011, A. U. Miner was pulled up by Borel after sustaining a sesamoid injury. After undergoing successful surgery at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington the horse has been recuperating on a farm near Versailles, Ky.
