Kentucky-based 12-year-old Three Chimneys stallion Point Given (Thunder Gulch-Turko's Turn, by Turkoman) "will not shuttle back to Haras Anderson in Brazil during the upcoming Southern Hemisphere breeding season" reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Point Given (2001 US Horse-Of-The-Year & Champion 3YO Male) had shuttled to Haras Anderson in Bage in Rio Grande do Sul for the previous 2 seasons. Three Chimneys president Case Clay confirmed: "He had 2 great years there & we saw some nice foals, but he will not be going down again this year. As of now, he does not have an engagement to shuttle this year." On the track, Point Given won 9 of 13 starts (including both the 2001 Gr1 Preakness Stakes & Gr1 Belmont Stakes) & earned US$3,968,500. He has subsequently sired 137 winners (15 stakes-winners, including 2007 Canadian Horse-Of-The-Year & 2008 US Gr1 Pacific Classic Stakes winner Go Between) from 241 starters in 6 crops of racing age for US$15,363,476 progeny earnings. Point Given stands at Three Chimneys Farm for US$10,000.
