Algorithms to stand stud at Claiborne


Graded winner Algorithms, who was retired undefeated last week after three starts, will enter stud at Claiborne farm, the Paris, Ky., nursery announced Thursday.

The Bernardini 3-year-old will stand for $7,500 and will be syndicated.

Algorithms won the Grade 3 Holy Bull Stakes on Jan. 29 but was retired after aggravating a previous splint bone injury during training. Campaigned by Starlight Stables, he had been considered a leading Kentucky Derby contender this spring before the initial injury in his right front leg. Algorithms won both his starts at 2.

A son of Grade 3-placed Ava Knowsthecode, Algorithms is a half-brother to graded winners Justin Phillip, Keyed Entry, and Successful Mission.
