Graded stakes winner Buffalo Man has been sold to stand at Totara Park Stud near Whangarei, New Zealand, where he will enter stud.
Buffalo Man (El Prado--Perfect Six, by Saratoga Six) was a 2007 Triple Crown hopeful for Rick Pitino and partners’ Ol Memorial Stable and C.E. Glasscock. Following a 2-year-old season in which he was a stakes winner and graded stakes-placed, Buffalo Man won the Spectacular Bid Stakes and the Ocala Breeders’ Sale Championship Stakes in his first two starts at 3. He missed the Triple Crown after suffering an ankle injury and didn’t run again until the fall.
Buffalo Man retired with eight wins from 23 starts and earnings of $505,234. As 4-year-old in 2008, he captured the Red Bank Stakes (gr. IIIT) and the Appleton Handicap (gr. IIIT).
Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs is the breeder of Buffalo Man, who was foaled in Ontario.
Buffalo Man will stand for NZ$6,500 (approximately $4,600). Jerald Becker brokered the deal to stand Buffalo Man in New Zealand.
