G3 Winner San Pablo Retired to Rockridge Stud

Todd Pletcher trainee beginning stallion career in New York; to stand for $2,500.

Grade III winner San Pablo  has been retired and will join the Rockridge Stud roster in Hudson, N.Y., for 2014, it was announced Dec. 22.

The soon-to-be 6-year-old son of Jump Start  out of the winning Silver Ghost mare Hunt's Corner was trained by Todd Pletcher for Burning Sands Stable, compiling a 10-5-1 mark in 19 lifetime starts with earnings of $595,000.

The dark bay captured the Philip Iselin Stakes (gr. III) at Monmouth Park in 2012 and counted six other stakes wins among his victories. He concluded his career Aug. 18 with a runner-up finish in the Iselin.

"He has a great mind, was very easy to train, and a consummate professional. He is a very A.P. Indy-type horse, scopey, and with great heart," Pletcher said.

Rockridge Stud’s Lere Visagie added, "We are excited to be able to offer breeders an A.P. Indy-line stallion in addition to our other stallions and we think he will make a nice addition to the group. Mr. Bearden (San Pablo’s owner) plans to breed most of his own mares to the stallion, and we are happy to offer breeders a fantastic opportunity by participating in ‘Share the Upside’ with this horse."

San Pablo will stand for $2,500 fee for live foal stands and nurses.
