Windfields Sells Stallions Alydeed and War Deputy

Windfields Farm has sold leading sires Alydeed and War Deputy. Both stood the past breeding season at Windfields near Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.

Alydeed, winner of the 1992 Queen's Plate Stakes at Woodbine and Canada's leading sire by progeny earnings in 2001, will stand at Jack and Linda Johnson's Peaceful Valley Stud near Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. Fifteen-year Alydeed (Shadeed--Bialy, by Alydar) has sired 11 stakes winners and 14 stakes-placed runners, plus the earners of $14.8 million. A daughter, Primaly, was a Canadian champion, and another daughter Hedonist, won the Santa Anita Oaks (gr. I). As a racehorse, Alydeed won nine of 18 races and earned $930,689.

War Deputy, a grade III winner, was Canada's leading sire in 2002. He will stand at Elia Stud near Athens, Greece.

Thirteen-year-old War Deputy (Deputy Minister--Sweet Alliance, by Sir Ivor) has sired eight stakes winners and 11 stakes-placed runners, and has progeny earnings of $9.2 million. On the racecourse, he captured three of nine races and earned $141,725.

Elia earlier imported Lion Cavern from Kentucky to stand the 2005 season, but the stallion died shortly after his arrival in Greece this summer.
