Graded-placed Stanislavsky to Highcliff in New York

Stanislavsky, who was twice graded stakes-placed in New York, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Carl Lizza Jr.'s and Joseph Bartone's Highcliff Farm near Delanson, N.Y.

A $227,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale yearling, Stanislavsky won or placed in five of six starts and earned $75,300. Racing at Aqueduct, he won his maiden race by eight lengths and placed in the Bay Shore (gr. III) and Withers (gr. III) Stakes. Stanislavsky initially raced for Seymour Cohn, then for the Merrylegs Farm of Cohn's daughter, Paula Ann Cohn Hallman.

A son of Dehere, Stanislavsky is out of the Nureyev mare Spinet, who is a half-sister to Irish champion miler Prince of Birds. Stanislavsky will stand for $1,500 live foal.
