US$8m Mr Sekiguchi Moves To Bridlewood
US$8 million yearling & now 6YO stallion Mr Sekiguchi (Storm Cat-Welcome Surprise, by Seeking The Gold) has been relocated from Hill 'n' Dale Farm in Kentucky to Bridlewood Farm in Florida for the 2010 breeding season. Mr Sekiguchi (whose dam Welcome Surprise is a graded stakes-winning half-sister to Classic winners A.P.Indy & Summer Squall) was bought for a sale-topping US$8 million by Fusao Sekiguchi at the 2004 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. On the track, he notched 2 wins & 2 placings from 4 starts before retiring due to a tibia injury. Mr Sekiguchi stood the last 2 seasons at Hill 'n' Dale & was bred to 97 mares in his 1st year there.
