St. Jovite to Stand in Ireland

St. Jovite, winner of two of Europe's greatest races, will stand at Michael Bowe's Greentree Stud in County Tipperary, Ireland.

The 17-year-old son of Pleasant Colony previously stood at Virginia Kraft Payson's Payson Stud near Lexington.

A French and Irish champion, St. Jovite scored his biggest wins in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes (Eng-I) and Budweiser Irish Derby (Ire-I) and ran second in the Ever Ready Epsom Derby (Eng-I).

St. Jovite's nine stakes winners include such graded winners as Amerique and French group winner Equerry. Amerique won the San Juan Capistrano Invitational Handicap (gr. IT).

St. Jovite is one of four stakes winners from his dam, Kentucky Broodmare of the Year Northern Sunset (by Northfields).
