Crestwood Farm Renews With TrueNicks

Kipling (TrueNicks,SRO) began his career in Oklahoma, joining the Crestwood roster after Kip Deville emerged as one of the better middle distance turf runners of the decade just past. He has a good a pedigree as any stallion anywhere, being by Gulch out of Weekend Storm, a daughter of Weekend Surprise. Weekend Storm has held up her end of the family tree as Kipling is a full or three quarter brother to four stakes winners, including grade I winner Court Vision.

Noble Causeway (TrueNicks,SRO) will have his first yearlings go to market later this year. The son of 2009 Champion Sire Giant’s Causeway, and a $1.15 million yearling himself, ran second in the grade I Florida Derby at three and also earned graded blacktype as a four-year-old. He’s out of the Seeking the Gold mare Mimi’s Golden Girl, daughter of Alabama S. (gr. I) winner Classy Cathy.

Unbridled Energy (TrueNicks,SRO) will be the next son of Unbridled’s Song with runners when his first crop hits the races in the coming months. He won his debut at two, was a graded winner at three, and took down the San Fernando Breeders’ Cup S. (gr. II) at 4. Unbridled Energy is out of the mare Ataentsic, a stakes winner by Hold Your Peace, and the dam of two other graded stakes horses.

Visionaire (TrueNicks,SRO) stands his first season in 2010. He was a winner at 2 and won the Gotham S (gr. III) in March of his sophomore season. His signature win came later in his three-year-old year when he took the King’s Bishop S. (gr. I) over a field that included Kodiak Kowboy. The King’s Bishop has been quite the proving ground for stallions over the years with sires like Distorted Humor, Elusive Quality, Tale of the Cat and More than Ready, etc. having won or placed in the event. Visionaire is a son of Grand Slam out of a stakes placed French Deputy mare.
