Yesbyjimminy to Stand at Bridlewood

Florida sprinter won seven stakes

Graded stakes winner Yesbyjimminy has been retired from racing and will stand the 2010 breeding season at the Appleton family’s Bridlewood Farm near Ocala, Fla. He is Yes It's True’s highest earning colt, with a bankroll of $586,940.

A seven-time stakes winner, Yesbyjimminy was a staple atop the sprint division in Florida over the last four years. He broke his maiden in his 2-year-old debut at Calder and went on to close out the meet as one of the best juveniles in Florida, with four wins from five starts in sprints, including wins in the Criterium Stakes and Fasig-Tipton Turf Dash Stakes.

At 3, Yesbyjimminy earned a 110 Beyer Speed Figure winning the Eillo Stakes and placing third in the Carry Back Stakes (gr. II). Last year as a 4-year-old, he went on a six-race win streak where he captured four straight stakes, including the Kenny Noe Jr. Handicap. (gr. III). During that stretch, Yesbyjimminy recorded four triple-digit Beyers.

Out of the multiple stakes-producing Pentelicus mare Sisters Creek, Yesbyjimminy was campaigned as a homebred by Trilogy Stables. He won 11 of 25 races for trainer Ed Plesa Jr.

“We are excited about Yesbyjimminy joining our stallion roster,” said George G. Isaacs, Bridlewood general manager. “With the success of Yes It’s True and Pentelicus as his foundation, along with his brilliant and very consistent race record, we feel he is a perfect fit for the Florida market. He is also a much needed outcross for the Florida mare population."

A fee for Yesbyjimminy will be set at a later date.
