Gr1 Winner Jimmy Creed To Spendthrift
Top US sprinter Jimmy Creed (Distorted Humor-Hookedonthefeelin, by Citidancer) has been retired to stand at owner B. Wayne Hughes' Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky for the 2014 season, reports bloodhorse.com. The decision to end the 4YOs racing career was made after he sustained an injury to the sesamoidean ligament in his right ankle, ruling out any possibility of him lining up in the Breeders' Cup Sprint at Santa Anita on November 2nd. The son of leading US stallion Distorted Humor won 4 of his 10 starts, including the Gr1 Malibu Stakes & Gr2 Potrero Grande Stakes at Santa Anita, for US$439,250 in prize money. Jimmy Creed, a US$900,000 Keeneland September yearling, is from the Gr1-winning mare Hookedonthefeelin who has also produced three-time Gr1 winner Pussycat Doll (Real Quiet) & Jimmy Creed's stakes-winning full-sister Funny Feeling. "We were hopeful we could bring Jimmy Creed home to stud after the Breeders' Cup because the entire team was very excited about his chances in the Sprint, but it wasn't meant to be," said Spendthrift's general manager Ned Toffey. "The great news is that we're going to be able to offer breeders what we believe is a tremendous opportunity to breed to an exciting stallion." Jimmy Creed's service fee will be US$12,500.
