El Caballo to Stand at Roger's Ranch

Graded stakes winner has champion Jewel Princess as his second dam.

Graded stakes winner El Caballo will enter stud in 2012 at Roger and Julie Pelster’s Roger’s Ranch near Mead, Neb. The 8-year-old son of El Corredor will stand for a private fee.

A $225,000 Keeneland September yearling, El Caballo won the 2010 Colonel E.R. Bradley Handicap (gr. IIIT) and was beaten a nose in the 2009 Mervin Muniz Jr. Memorial Handicap (gr. IIT), both at Fair Grounds. He was retired with a record of 7-5-0 from 20 starts and earnings of $408,598.

El Caballo is out of the Storm Cat mare Fine Jewel, whose dam is champion and Breeders’ Cup Distaff (gr. I) winner Jewel Princess.
