Thirteen-year-old Lycius (Mr. Prospector--Lypatia, by Lyphard) earned $508,888 in two racing seasons in Europe. Winner of the Middle Park Stakes (Eng-I) at two, he placed in six group I events, including the English and Irish Two Thousand Guineas. His added-money winners include Italian champion Hello and this year's French group-winning 2-year-old filly Ya Hajar.
English group I winner Lycius has been relocated to Tim Little and Anne Morgan's Mill Creek Farm near Stillwater, N.Y., where he will stand for $7,500 live foal. The sire of 21 stakes winners, Lycius stood the last two years at Robert Slack's Stoneriggs Farm near Morristown, Fla., as the property of that farm and B.E. Stables. The latter outfit recently bought out its former partner.
