He's So Chic to Stand at Flying P in Alabama

Son of Jump Start placed in five stakes and earned more than $600,000.

He's So Chic, a multiple stakes-placed runner and earner of $615,358, has been retired from racing and will stand the 2014 breeding season at Bobby and Mary Anne Pruitt's Flying P Ranch near Hope Hull, Ala. 

The 10-year-old son of Jump Start  out of the Private Terms mare So Chic will stand for $2,000, with special consideration to approved mares.

He's So Chic was initially purchased by B&B Thoroughbreds as a weanling for $110,000 at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale and then bought by agent Buzz Chace for $75,000 out of the 2005 Keeneland September yearling sale.

He compiled a record of 15 wins, nine seconds, and 11 thirds from 51 career starts. Among his best efforts were runner-up finishes in the Fall Highweight Handicap behind multiple grade I winner Fabulous Strike; Monmouth Park's Decathlon Stakes and Teddy Drone Stakes twice; and Tampa Bay Downs' Pelican Stakes, all at 6 furlongs.

He's So Chic hails from the female family of grade I winners Squander and Goodbye Halo, plus graded stakes-winning sires Sightseeing and With Distinction.  

"He's So Chic is an incredibly sound, lightning fast A.P. Indy-line stallion whose first five dams all descend from the legendary Phipps family/Wheatley Stable breeding program, tracing back to blue hens Discipline and Lady Be Good," said Bobby Pruitt, who will stand the horse in partnership with New York-based Drawing Away Stables. "He presents an unprecedented opportunity for breeders in Alabama and surrounding states to tap into to New York stakes-quality speed, exceptional durability, and a pedigree that's dripping with the finest black-type."

The deal was brokered by New Jersey-based bloodstock agent Michael Slezak.
