Bedford Falls, a half brother to top sire Harlan's Holiday, will be relocated within California to Tom and Debi Stull's Tommy Town Thoroughbreds for the 2018 breeding season.
Previously standing at Poplar Meadows, the 14-year-old son of Forestry—Christmas in Aiken, by Affirmed, has been represented by nine of his 22 lifetime winners in 2017, including black-type winner Cuddle Alert. A 6-year-old daughter of the winning Gilded Time mare Tee Dee, Cuddle Alert won the Spring Fever Handicap at Santa Anita Park and then ran third to Unique Bella in the grade 3 LA Woman Stakes in October.
"Harlan's Holiday continues to improve this family through his successful sons, including Into Mischief , and we're hoping Bedford Falls will produce another runner similar to Cuddle Alert, who will be competitive on the graded stakes level as well," said Tom Stull, whose Santa Ynez farm was California's leading breeder in 2009, 2013, and 2015.
Bedford Falls' other top runners include multiple stakes-placed winner Wonderful Lie, who is out of the Flying Continental mare Flying Alibi; and six-figure earner Zuzu's Petals, who has compiled a 6-9-6 record out of 29 starts and earned $257,746 to date.
Bedford Falls' 2018 fee is $2,000, live foal guarantee.
