Three time champion in the U.S. and winner of seven grade I stakes, Castleton Lyons' stallion Gio Ponti will not shuttle to Australia's Arrowfield Stud for the 2013 Southern Hemisphere breeding season.
Bernstein, who is represented as a stallion by 19 stakes winners this year, will stand in 2011 for $20,000 at Shane Ryan's Castleton Lyons near Lexington.

Castleton Lyons announced March 6 that leading sire Bernstein will not shuttle to Haras La Biznaga for the 2009 southern hemisphere breeding season.
