El Corredor, the sire of 31 stakes winners, will stand in 2013 at Questroyal North near Stillwater, N.Y. The 2013 fee will be $7,500 when foal stands and nurses. The 15-year-old son of Mr. Greeley formerly stood at Hill 'n' Dale Farms near Lexington.
El Corredor, who won the Cigar Mile Handicap (gr. I) in New York, has sired seven grade I winners including New York grade I winners Adieu and Backseat Rhythm. His other grade I winners include Dominican and Crisp.
Dominican's grade I score came in the 2007 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes over champion Street Sense , and Crisp's grade I triumph came in the 2010 Santa Anita Oaks, with subsequent champion Blind Luck finishing third. Crisp was sold in foal to Bernardini for $1.2 million at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November select mixed sale.
"El Corredor is the type of multiple grade I stakes sire the expanding New York breeding market needs and wants," said Questroyal principal Barry Ostrager.
El Corredor is represented this year by eight stakes winners including Beautiful But Blue, who has won three stakes in 2012. Lifetime, El Corredor has sired the earners of more than $30.1 million and 119 juvenile winners. His $3.6 million in progeny earnings this year places him in the No. 2 spot on the New York list.
El Corredor is represented this year by 75 yearlings.
Out of the Silver Deputy mare Silvery Swan, El Corredor is a half brother to two graded winners including grade I winner and young sire Roman Ruler.
