Grade I Winner Bullsbay Joins TrueNicks
Written by Ian Tapp | Aug 09, 2010 |
Grade I winner Bullsbay (TrueNicks) has been retired and will stand at Northview Stallion Station near Chesapeake City, Md., for the 2011 breeding season.
The son of Tiznow earned $923,245 during a career that included a victory in the 2009 Whitney Handicap (gr. I), where he defeated Macho Again and Commentator. Bullsbay also won the Alysheba Stakes (gr. III), set a track record for one mile at Del Mar, and finished third to eventual Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra in the Woodward Stakes (gr. I).
Out of the stakes-placed Lord Carson mare The Hess Express, Bullsbay is a half brother to juvenile stakes winners Our Khrysty and Hidden Expression. His multiple stakes-winning third dam, Grecian Comedy, is a half sister to grade I-winning millionaire Grecian Flight.
His stud fee will be announced at a later date.
