Rockport Harbor To Stud At Darley Jonabell
US multiple graded stakes-winning 4YO stallion Rockport Harbor (Unbridled's Song-Regal Miss Copelan, by Copelan) will enter stud in 2007 at Darley at Jonabell in Kentucky, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Rockport Harbor retired last month "after recurrence of a foot injury." He won 5 of 8 starts overall for US$324,800 earnings; unbeaten in 4 starts as a 2YO (including the Gr2 Remsen Stakes & Gr3 Nashua Stakes), this season he added the Gr3 Essex Handicap (& also finished runner-up in last year's Gr3 Rebel Stakes). Darley's director of stallion operations in the US Dan Pride commented: "Rockport Harbor was a dazzling racehorse, whose talents ignited nationwide interest & passion. He's got a lot of his sire in him & we're very proud to be standing him on the Darley roster, where he fits in very well alongside another great charismatic gray Holy Bull."
