Malek to Blooming Hills in 2001

Millionaire Malek, who started his stallion career this year at Haras Mocito Guapo in Chile, will stand in 2001 at Ron and Fran Stolich's Blooming Hills Farm near Clements, Calif. Seven-year-old Malek will stand as the property of Great Falls S A for $6,000 live foal.

Malek (Mocito Guapo -- Condegnita, by Chairman Walker) was a champion 2-year-old in his native Chile, and a grade I winner in North America. He captured the 1998 Santa Anita Handicap (gr. I) in his third U.S. start and ran second in the Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) the following year. He was retired with 10 wins and seven runner-up efforts from 23 starts and earnings of $2,382,623.
