Two-time grade I winner Leroidesanimaux will enter stud at Audrey Haisfield's Stonewall Farm Stallions near Versailles, Ky., upon the completion of his racing career. The 5-year-old son of Candy Stripes is fresh off a course-record-setting effort at Saratoga and is scheduled to contest Sunday's Atto Mile (Can-IT) at Woodbine and the Oct. 29 NetJetsBreeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) at Belmont Park.

Leroidesanimaux ran the 1 1/16 miles of the Aug. 27 Fourstardave Handicap (gr. IIT) at Saratoga in 1:39.92 in setting a new record. It marked his seven consecutive win, and included in the streak are scores in this year's Frank E. Kilroe Mile Handicap (gr. IT) and last year's Citation (gr. IT), Morvich (gr. IIIT), and Inglewood (gr. IIIT) Handicaps, with the last-named in course-record time of 1:38.45 for 1 1/16 miles at Hollywood Park.

"Leroidesanimaux fits the profile of a Stonewall stallion," Audrey Haisfield said. "He is battle tested and has consistently proven himself against the very best competition."

Leroidesanimaux, who races for Goncalo and Regina Borges Torrealba, was group I-placed in his native Brazil. For his career, he has won eight of 11 races and earned $744,337.

A Blushing Groom grandson, Leroidesanimaux is a half-brother to two Brazilian group winners and is out of the Ahonoora mare Dissemble, whose half-sister Hasili is the dam of champions Banks Hill and Dansili.
