Stakes winner Greeley's Conquest has been retired from racing and will enter stud in 2011 at Hooper Roff’s Breeders Station near Lexington. Owned by Millard R. Seldin Revocable Trust, the 6-year-old son of Mr. Greeley will stand for a private fee.
After finishing second in his first start, Greeley’s Conquest captured four straight races, including the Prairie Mile Stakes. Later on, he recorded triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures when winning the Temperence Hill Stakes and the Prairie Meadows Sprint Stakes in back-to-back starts. His other added-money score came in the $200,000 Remington Park Sprint Cup Stakes.
Greeley’s Conquest placed in six stakes. He finished second in four stakes, three of which were graded, including the Forego Handicap (gr. I) at Saratoga.
During his career, Greeley’s Conquest won or placed in 16 of 26 races and earned $475,346 while racing for the trust.
Greeley’s Conquest, out of the stakes-winning Raise a Cup mare Tipsy Girl, is a half brother to five stakes horses, including graded stakes winner Itty Bitty Pretty.
