Ocean Terrace to Belle Mere in Oklahoma

Graded stakes winner Ocean Terrace will stand at Dee and Betty Raper's Belle Mere Farm near Norman, Okla., in 2006. A son of Saint Ballado out of the stakes-winning Black Tie Affair mare Crystal River, Ocean Terrace burst onto the racing scene winning his first three starts, including the El Camino Real Derby (gr. III) over Ministers Wild Cat and Ten Most Wanted.

A $700,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase, Ocean Terrace is bred similarly to Horse of the Year Saint Liam, as both are sons of Saint Ballado out of Mr. Prospector-line mares.

Ocean Terrace, who previously stood at Highclere near Lexington, will stand for $2,000 live foal.
