Stakes winner and multiple graded stakes-placed turf horse Remind (TrueNicks) has joined TrueNicks. Bred by Claiborne Farm, the son of Deputy Minister stands at Long Acres Stud in New Zealand.

Campaigned in North America as a Claiborne Farm homebred, Remind won consecutive maiden and allowance (click for video) races over the Gulfstream Park turf. Stepped up to graded stakes company, Remind placed in four consecutive graded stakes during his three-year-old season—the Crown Royal American Turf (gr. III), Jefferson Cup (gr. III), Arlington Classic (gr. II), and Kent (gr. III)—before winning the one-mile Storm Cat Stakes (click for video) at Keeneland.

During his five-season career, Remind won from 1600-1800 meters and placed in eight graded events. In a win at Gulfstream Park, he ran a quick 1:33.70 for one mile. Remind was also fourth in the Shadwell Turf Mile (gr. I).

Produced from the winning Timeless Moment mare Watch the Time, Remind is a half brother to graded winners Prime Meridian, Watch, and War Thief. War Thief is now the dam of Transylvania (gr. III) winner Boss Lafitte.

Standing for a NZ$3,500 fee, Remind entered stud in 2007 and his first crop are two-year-olds of 2010. He represents the Deputy Minister sire line—a line with notable success in limited opportunities in Australia and New Zealand.

Deputy Minister son Dehere (who, like Remind, carries Damascus in the third generation) shuttled to Australia where he fit exceptionally well with local mares, getting Golden Slipper (gr. I) winner Belle Du Jour, multiple group I winner and twice Cox Plate runner-up Defier, and Coolmore Classic (gr. I) winner Bollinger.

Dehere sired group winners in New Zealand and Australia from mares by Balmerino, Century, Dayjur, Kenmare, Last Tycoon, Marscay, Pre Emptive Strike, Sabona, Success Express, Tights, and Zabeel—so there is every reason to expect Remind to work with a wide range of broodmare sires.

Now a TrueNicks stallion, Remind is available to run unlimited complimentary nicking reports.
