Two Millennium Stallions to Louisiana in 2010

Moon Lake Farm acquires fractional interest.


Millennium Farms announced that two of its Kentucky-based stallions, Scrimshaw and Woke Up Dreamin, will relocate to John Turner's Moon Lake Farm in Louisiana for the 2010 breeding season.

Moon Lake Farm has acquired a fractional interest in both stallions, which will stand as part of a partnership between Millennium Farms and Moon Lake Farm, according to a release from Millennium Farms. Both will stand for a fee of $2,500 and will be nominated to both the Breeders’ Cup and the Louisiana Stallion Stakes program.

"Scrimshaw and Woke Up Dreamin have excellent credentials and will be very attractive to Louisiana and Texas breeders," Moon Lake Farm general manager Dr. Jim Ward said in the release. "Both are young, have excellent race records, great conformation and are off to productive starts in their stallion careers. They will be well-priced to allow all breeders access to them and we will also support them with mares of our own."

"We have long participated in the Louisiana program and are happy to increase our involvement," Millennium Farms owner Ro Parra said in a statement. "We are pleased to have sold an interest in Scrimshaw and Woke Up Dreamin to John Turner, and plan to support both horses with our own mares."

A 9-year-old son of Gulch, Scrimshaw won the Coolmore Lexington Stakes (gr. II) and competed in all three Triple Crown events,finishing third in the Preakness Stakes (gr. I). He was represented by 15 winners as a freshman sire of 2008, with 31 sophomore winners so far in 2009. His best runner is graded stakes winner Mr. Rod.

Woke Up Dreamin is a 9-year-old son of Holy Bull who won the Smile Sprint Handicap (gr. II) at Calder and the True North Handicap (gr. II) at Belmont Park. As a freshman sire of 2009, he has three stakes horses to his credit, including Gold Rush Futurity winner Maddox Who.
