Ro Parra’s Millennium Farms announced Oct. 29 that Littleexpectations is relocating from the Lexington operation to Louisiana to stand the 2009 breeding season at Robert McDowell's 519 Thoroughbreds near Arcadia.

Littleexpectations will join  Millennium Farms stallions Easyfromthegitgo and Millennium Windat 519. He will stand for a stud fee of $2,500 as the property of Millennium Farms and Glory Days Breeding. Easyfromthegitgo also stands for $2,500, and Millennium Wind's fee is $2,000.

“We now have three of our stallions in Louisiana, which is a testament to how highly we rank the state-bred program there,” said Parra. “Littleexpectations is a perfect fit for Louisiana and that region; his full brother Valid Expectationshas made a national name for himself in Texas and he stacks up well with Louisiana's top stallions. As the sire of King of the Roxy, who won graded stakes at 2 and 3, we already know he can produce 'the big horse.’  We look forward to offering him to breeders in Louisiana."

By Valid Appeal, Littleexpectations is a full brother to leading sire Valid Expectations, a four-time leading sire in Texas. An undefeated dual stakes winner at 2, Littleexpectations, who currently ranks 11th on Kentucky’s leading third crop sire list, is from the family of Purge, Foolish Pleasure, and Jersey Girl.
