Colonial Colony to Holden Farm

Grade I winner Colonial Colony will stand at Holden Farm in Indiana.

Arv and Jay Holden, who have transferred their Holden Farm operation from the Denver area to Greenfield, Ind., will stand grade I winner Colonial Colony at their new farm for a fee of $3,500. The 11-year-old stallion formerly stood at Buck Pond Farm near Versailles, Ky.

Colonial Colony (Pleasant Colony--Jen’s Fashion, by Northern Fashion) won the 2004 Stephen Foster Handicap (gr. I) over Southern Image and Perfect Drift. He earned a career total of $921,345. His first foals are 2-year-olds.

The Holdens also announced the death of their 15-year-old stallion Eishin Masamune. A Japanese-bred son of Sunday Silence, Eishin Masamune died from a leg injury suffered in December.

Eishin Masamune, out of the Tosho Boy mare Eishin Gracious, is represented as a sire by stakes winner Sunday Romeo and stakes-placed Sunday Berries.
