Oklahoma's Caines Stallion Station Adds to Successful Line-Up

Caines Stallion Station in Wynnewood, Okla., is the first farm in the Sooner State to join TrueNicks. Operated by C. L. and Ellen Caines, the farm is home to five stallions, including some exciting new additions for the 2009 season.

The veteran stallion Jack Wilson (TrueNicks,SRO), a former leading sire in the Southwest, is one of those new stallions. He is the sire of nearly 13% stakes winners from his crops of racing age and typically sires tough, sound, and consistent runners. Six-time stakes winner Romeos Wilson, an earner of $726,105 in nine seasons on the track, and 10-time stakes winner Ninety Nine Jack ($599,202 in eight seasons) are just two examples of those good and tough Jack Wilson runners.

Multiple stakes winner Surachai (TrueNicks,SRO) will also relocate to Caines Stallion Station for the 2009 season. The son of the good Seattle Slew stallion Slewpy previously stood at Buck Pond Farm in Kentucky. A four-time stakes winner in California and an earner of over $680,000, Surachai is the sire of the stakes winner Recognition from his early crops to race.

Country Be Gold (TrueNicks,SRO) will be entering his fourth season at stud in 2008, and his first at Caines. He is a four-time stakes-winning (and grade I-placed) son of Summer Squall out of the stakes-winning Personal Flag mare Beloved Bea. His big win came in the grade III Aqueduct Handicap and he also placed in the grade I Jockey Club Gold Cup, ahead of multiple grade I-winning millionaire Albert the Great (TrueNicks,SRO) and in the grade II Brooklyn Handicap.

The veterans of the Caines roster are Leave a Legacy (TrueNicks,SRO) and Scottish Halo (TrueNicks,SRO). Leave a Legacy, a son of the underrated sire Marquetry, was a four-time stakes winner at Remington Park and runner-up in that track's rich Derby. Scottish Halo is a son of Jolie's Halo and a four-time stakes winner in his racing days. His big wins included the grade III Laurel Futurity at 2 and the rich Empire Classic Handicap.
