Bullet Train, the British-bred son of Sadler's Wells--Kind, by Danehill and half brother to world champion Frankel, will stand the 2014 breeding season at Pope McLean's Crestwood Farm near Lexington. His stud fee will remain $7,500.
The 6-year-old stallion previously stood at Wintergreen Stallion Station near Midway, Ky.
"Bullet Train is a proud addition to the Crestwood Farm stallion roster," said McLean. "As a three-quarter brother to Frankel, Bullet Train offers breeders a unique opportunity--access to a well-made and very talented racehorse who is also one of the best-bred stallions in the world."
While Frankel is by Galileo, Bullet Train is by Galileo's sire Sadler's Wells. At 2, Bullet Train won the Totesport.com Derby Trial Stakes (Eng-III).
"We are very excited to have Bullet Train go to a farm as prestigious as Crestwood Farm," said Sean Feld, managing director of Bullet Train LLC. "The McLean's are a great family and hands-on horsemen. We are looking forward to a prosperous partnership."
