Hurricane Hall Stallions Offer Value to Race Horse Breeders

TrueNicks is happy to announce that Ben Walden's Hurricane Hall will once again offer complimentary Thoroughbred nick reports during 2009.

Four promising young stallions stand at Hurricane Hall, Artie Schiller, Bellamy Road, English Channel and Teuflesburg.

Artie Schiller (TrueNicks,SRO) amassed over $2 million in his career and won six graded stakes events, including the 2005 Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. I) at Belmont Park. He's a son of champion sire El Prado (IRE) (TrueNicks,SRO) out of dual grade I winner Hidden Light (by Majestic Light).

Horses just don't win grade I's the way Bellamy Road (TrueNicks,SRO) won the 2005 Wood Memorial (gr. I). He won by 17 1/2 lengths, equaling the Aqueduct track record held by dual Classic winner Riva Ridge. He earned a Beyer speed figure of 120, the second-highest published Beyer for a 3-year-old. With a win like that it's easy to forget that the son of the Danzig stallion Concerto was also a grade III winner at 2.

English Channel (TrueNicks,SRO) is one of the most accomplished American turf runners this decade. He won six grade I races, breaking his own course record when winning the fabled United Nations Handicap (gr. I) for the second time in 2007. That season the son of champion sire Smart Strike (TrueNicks,SRO) also won the Joe Hirsh Turf Classic (gr. I) and the Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. I), en route to Eclipse Award honors.

[Teuflesburg] is one of the first sons of Johannesburg (TrueNicks,SRO) to stud in North America and he's a good one. At 2, he won the Black Gold Stakes and was beaten just a nose by another Johannesburg colt, Scat Daddy (TrueNicks,SRO) , in the grade II Sanford stakes (while still a maiden). As a 3-year-old he took the 7-furlong Wood Stephens S. (gr. II) and defeated Hard Spun (TrueNicks,SRO) in the one mile Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn. Park. He's out of the Devil's Bag mare St. Michele and hails from the female line that has produced the likes of Tale of the Cat (TrueNicks,SRO) and Pulpit.
