Millionaire Corinthian , winner of the 2007 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, will move from the Beck family's Gainesway near Lexington, to Dr. William Solomon's Pin Oak Lane near New Freedom, Pa., for 2014.
The 10-year-old son of Pulpit—Multiply, by Easy Goer, who first entered stud in 2008, stands his initial Pennsylvania season for $4,000 live foal, with discounts for multiple mares. He stood for $10,000 in 2013.
"We expect Corinthian to be a leading sire in the Mid-Atlantic for years to come," said Solomon in a release. "He has a good number of 2-year-olds, yearlings, and foals going forward, and is an excellent breeding stallion who consistently settles over 92% (of his mares)."
Corinthian entered stud following a stellar 4-year-old campaign in which he won the Gulfstream Park Handicap (gr. II), followed by two of racing's most prestigious dirt mile tests: Metropolitan Handicap (gr. I) at Belmont and the inaugural running of the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile with a 119 Beyer speed figure.
Corinthian amassed earnings of $1,267,273 from 12 starts, winning six times and placing in three other races. He crossed the wire first in the 2006 Fountain of Youth Stakes (gr. II) in his stakes debut but was disqualified to third behind First Samurai and Flashy Bull .
Ranked fourth in the nation among freshman sires in 2011 and in the top 10 the following two years on the second- and third-crop sire lists, Corinthian has sired six stakes winners, including 2013 added-money winner Ten Thirty.
His graded stakes-placed juveniles include Muppet Man and My Corinthian, the latter third in this year's Bashford Manor (gr. III). Corinthian has progeny earnings of more than $7.1 million with his offspring earning more than $3.4 million in 2013.
A half-brother to grade II winner Desert Hero, Corinthian descends from the female family of leading sires Sadler's Wells, Nureyev, and Fairy King. He was bred in Kentucky by Gracefield Equine and Hargus Sexton.
