Gr1-Winner Discreetly Mine US$15k At Lane's End
US Gr1-winning 3YO colt Discreetly Mine (Mineshaft-Pretty Discreet, by Private Account) "who developed into one of the nation's top sprinters before being injured" will enter stud in 2011 at William Farish's Lane's End Farm in Kentucky at a fee of US$15,000 reported bloodhorse.com. Discreetly Mine led all-the-way to notch his 3rd consecutive graded-stakes success with victory in August's Gr1 King's Bishop Stakes (7 furlongs) at Saratoga, following earlier wins in both July's Gr3 Jersey Shore Stakes (6 furlongs) at Monmouth Park & August's Gr2 Amsterdam Stakes (6.5 furlongs) at Saratoga (where he recorded the year's highest Beyer Speed Figure for a 3YO at 111, blitzing his rivals by 8.75-lengths in 1min 14.27sec). He was expected to be one of the favourites for November's Gr1 Breeders' Cup Sprint (1200m) at Churchill Downs, until injuring his left stifle in October. Discreetly Mine retired with 5 wins (also including February's Gr2 Risen Star Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Fair Grounds) & 4 runners-up (including June's Gr2 Woody Stephens Stakes over 7 furlongs at Belmont Park, plus 2009's Gr1 Champagne Stakes over 8 furlongs at Belmont Park & Gr2 Futurity Stakes over 7 furlongs at Belmont Park) from 13 starts for US$799,350 earnings.
