Any Given Saturday Relocated to Pin Oak Lane

Grade I winner Any Given Saturday   will relocate from Darley near Lexington to stand at Dr. William O. Solomon's Pin Oak Lane near New Freedom, Pa., for the 2014 breeding season.

The fee for the 9-year-old son of Distorted Humor   has been set at $5,000, down from $7,500.

Any Given Saturday notched the most important win of his career during his sophomore season when he prevailed by a decisive 4 1/2 lengths in the 2007 Haskell Invitational (gr. I), defeating a field that included grade I winner Hard Spun   and Horse of the Year Curlin  .

Any Given Saturday also won a pair of grade II stakes at Belmont Park that year: the Brooklyn Handicap and Dwyer Stakes. He also finished second by a nose to Street Sense   in the Tampa Bay Derby (gr. III). Out of the A.P. Indy mare Weekend in Indy, Any Given Saturday retired from racing with a record of 6-2-1 from 11 starts, for earnings of $1,083,533.

"Any Given Saturday will be an outstanding addition to our farm and to the breeding industry in Pennsylvania," said Solomon, who also partners with Darley to stand Offlee Wild   at Pin Oak Lane. "He continues to show the ability to throw quality winners and I expect great support from breeders in our state."

Any Given Saturday currently ranks sixth among North America's leading third-crop sires with more than $3.7 million in 2013 progeny earnings.

He is represented by nine stakes winners, including the undefeated Princess Arabella, runaway winner of the 2012 Sunland Park Oaks who commanded $725,000 at this year's Keeneland's January mixed sale.

Bred in Kentucky by Racehorse Management LLC, Any Given Saturday is a half brother to grade III winner Bohemian Lady.
