Stakes Winner Bop to Legacy in Virginia

Bop, who set three course records in stakes, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at R. Larry Johnson's Legacy Farm near Bluemont, Va. Six-year-old Bop, by Rahy, won a dozen of 23 starts and earned $365,766.

All three of Bop's course records came at five furlongs. He captured the Pennsylvania Governor's Cup Handicap at Penn National in :54.61; the Yankee Affair Stakes at Gulfstream Park in :55.10; and the Punch Line Stakes at Colonial Downs in :55.85. Overall, Bop won six stakes.

Bop's dam, stakes-placed Golden Guinea (by Fappiano), is a half-sister to stakes winner Crown Silver. Bop's third dam is prominent broodmare Treasure Chest. Owned by Jonas Cash's Folly Quarter Stable, Bop will stand for $2,500.
