Evansville Slew to Buck Pond

Doug Arnold has announced that Evansville Slew has been purchased by his Buck Pond Farm near Lexington and will stand there starting March 9. The 12-year-old son of Slew City Slew out of the Fappiano mare Shape Shifter had previously stood at John T.L. Jones' Walmac International near Lexington. His 2004 fee will remain at $3,500 live foal.

"I think he's a horse that has been overlooked and I think his star will continue to rise," Arnold said. "He moves his mares up. He has a AEI (Average-Earnings Index) of 1.55 and his mares have a CI (Comparable Index) of 0.99. There aren't many that can move their mares up that much."

Evansville Slew, a four-time stakes winner as a 2-year-old including a victory in the Arlington-Washington Futurity (gr. II), is the sire of 11 stakes winners. He was represented by five stakes winners in 2003. His most successful runner has been two-time graded stakes winner March Magic, an earner of $638,290.
