6 Of Initial 7 Mares In-Foal To Smarty Jones
In the US, 6YO stallion Smarty Jones (who missed a few days at the beginning of the breeding season "due to a minor temporary blockage in his reproductive tract") has covered 31 mares & "6 of the initial 7 checked are in-foal," reported bloodhorse.com. Smarty Jones (Elusive Quality-I'll Get Along, by Smile) stands for US$100,000 at Robert Clay's Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky. He won 8 of his 9 career starts (including the 2004 Gr1 Kentucky Derby, Gr1 Preakness Stakes & Gr1 Arkansas Derby) & is currently standing his 3rd season at stud.
