US Sire Catienus Moves To McMahon In New York
In the US, stakes-winning & Gr1-placed 15-year-old former leading New York sire Catienus (Storm Cat-Diamond City, by Mr Prospector) will stand in 2010 at McMahon Of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in New York, reported bloodhorse.com. McMahon Of Saratoga Thoroughbreds is the 2nd New York farm Catienus will call home: after beginning his stallion career at Ramsey Farm in Kentucky, he stood a couple of seasons at Highcliff Farm in New Yrok (& was the state's leading sire in 2006) before returning to Ramsey (where he stood last season). Catienus has sired 20 stakes-winners (including Gr1-winners Dawn Of War & Precious Kitten) & his progeny have earned US$17.9 million.
