Northern Spur, Yankee Mon Relocated

Northern Spur, Yankee Mon to Dutchess Views

Champion Northern Spur and stakes winner Yankee Mon will stand at Michael Lischin's Dutchess Views Farm/Metropolitan Stud near Pine Plains, N.Y.

Northern Spur, who will stand for $3,000, has sired nine runners that have won or placed in stakes. His stakes winners are led by graded winner Chausson Poire. Northern Spur has progeny earnings of nearly $4 million.

A 16-year-old son of Sadler's Wells out of the Rheingold mare Fruition, Northern Spur was voted 1995 champion turf male after winning the Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT). He formerly stood at True North Farm near Versailles, Ky.

Yankee Mon, a 6-year-old son of Maria's Mon, has been retired from racing and will stand for $2,500. At Belmont Park, he captured the Evan Shipman Handicap and was twice stakes-placed. A $395,000 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July yearling, he retired with five wins and four placings from 20 races and earnings of $222,716 for Richard and Susan Imbert's Windmill Manor Farm.

Yankee Mon is a half-brother to the dam of grade I winner Appealing Zophie. His dam, Sodeo Sodeo (by Seattle Slew), is a half-sister to three stakes winners, including grade I winner Croeso.
