Congrats Retired To Stud At CloverLeaf
US Gr2-winning 6YO stallion Congrats (A.P.Indy-Praise, by Mr Prospector) has been retired & will enter stud in 2007 at CloverLeaf Farms II in Florida, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Kentucky-bred Congrats won 7 of 24 starts (including the 2005 Gr2 San Pasqual Handicap at Santa Anita & 2004 Alysheba Stakes at Churchill Downs) & earned US$978,960; he also finished in the placings in 6 other stakes (including runner-up in the 2005 Gr1 Santa Anita Handicap & 3rd in the Gr1 Hollywood Gold Cup Stakes, plus 5th in the 2005 Gr1 Dubai World Cup). CloverLeaf general manager Brent Fernung commented: "He has one of the best pedigrees in the stud book, being an A.P.Indy out of a Mr Prospector mare. He was a good racehorse & what really set me off is that when I went to see him in California, he was just a gorgeous horse. That was the clincher. He brings a package that we don't get down here very often."
