Native Regent to Elite Thoroughbreds

Graded stakes winner Native Regent, a 12-year-old son of Vice Regent, has arrived at Michele Rodriguez' Elite Thoroughbreds near Folsom, La., for stallion duty. The farm bought Native Regent from the estate of John Franks. Native Regent formerly stood at Franks Farm near Ocala, Fla.

Native Regent, who earned $543,995 is the sire of stakes-placed Native Mark and four $100,000-plus earners. He is the richest of the four stakes winners produced from stakes winner Barkerville Belle (by Ruthie's Native).
