Stonewall Signs Leroidesanimaux
Multiple Gr1-winning Brazilian-bred 5YO entire Leroidesanimaux (Candy Stripes-Dissemble, by Ahonoora) will stand alongside Doneraile Court, Marquetry & Medaglia d'Oro at Stonewall Farm in Kentucky "upon the completion of his racing career", reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Leroidesanimaux is contesting this morning's (Australian time) Gr1 Atto Mile Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) at Woodbine in Canada "as a prep for the US Gr1 Breeders' Cup Mile at Belmont Park on October 29". Leroidesanimaux has won 7 consecutive races (including 5 graded stakes) since moving to the US from Brazil at the beginning of the 2004 racing season; he has won both starts this season (taking the Gr1 Frank Kilroe Mile Handicap at Santa Anita on March 5 & Gr2 Fourstardave Handicap in course-record time at Saratoga on August 27). Stonewall Farm owner Audrey Haisfield commented: "Leroidesanimaux fits the profile of a Stonewall stallion. Like Medaglia d'Oro, he was a Gr1 winner for 3 seasons. He is battle tested & has constantly proven himself against the very best competition."
