Cacique to Stand at Banstead Manor

Millionaire Cacique, who won the Sept. 9 Man o' War Stakes (gr. IT) at Belmont Park, will enter stud in 2007 at Khalid Abdullah's Banstead Manor Stud near Newmarket, England.

An Irish-bred son of Danehill bred and raced by Juddmonte, Cacique won the Manhattan Handicap (gr. IT) at Belmont in June and ran second in three grade I turf stakes this year. He had begun his racing career in France, where he won three group stakes and placed in three group I events, including the Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris.

Five-year-old Cacique is a full or half-brother to grade/group I winners and/or champions Banks Hill, Dansili, Heat Haze, and Intercontinental. He is out of the stakes-winning Kahyasi mare Hasili.

Cacique, who has won seven of 17 races and earned $1,462,331, might run next in the Nov. 4 John Deere Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT).
