Breeders' Cup Winner Artie Schiller to Shuttle to Australia

Artie Schiller, who won the 2005 NetJets Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) over subsequent grass champion Leroidesanimaux, will shuttle in 2007 to Independent Stallions Victoria in Australia, according to Thoroughbred Daily News.

The 6-year-old son of El Pradocurrently is standing at Hurricane Hall near Lexington for a fee of $15,000.

In addition to his miler speed, Artie Schiller offers Australian breeders a first-rate pedigree free of the pervasive blood of leading sire Danehill.

Artie Schiller will stand for A$22,000 (approximately $17,300).

Artie Schiller, who is out of the grade I-winning Majestic Light mare Hidden Light, retired with 10 wins from 22 races and earnings of $2,088,853. Seven of those wins came in stakes.
