Eye of the Leopard , the 2009 Canadian champion 3-year-old colt and Queen's Plate winner, has been relocated from Calumet Farm to Osborne Farm near Cambridge, Minn., for the 2018 breeding season. His stud fee will be $1,500 live foal stands and nurses.
"Not only is he physically impressive, but he is also a champion, by a champion, and out of a champion," said Osborne Farm owners Joyce and Rick Osborne in an announcement about the stallion's relocation. "We are excited about this opportunity to bring a stallion of such quality to Minnesota. He will be a tremendous addition to our breeding program and provide the region with some of the top bloodlines in the game."
The 12-year-old son of A.P. Indy is out of Eye of the Sphynx, the 2004 Canadian champion 3-year-old filly and winner of the Labatt Woodbine Oaks. The daughter of Smart Strike is also the dam of grade 1-placed, grade 2 winner Deceptive Vision and graded-placed, black-type winner Hotep—both full siblings to Eye of the Leopard.
Of 35 foals of racing age (excluding 2-year-olds of 2018), Eye of the Leopard has sired 13 winners. He has two winners so far this year, Eye On the Money and Stormbeam.
Located in East Central Minnesota, Osborne Farm offers breeding, boarding, foaling, lay up care, and sales prep services. Discounts to Eye of the Leopard are available for multiple mare packages and approved mares.
