American Pharoah's half-brother to stand in Pennsylvania


Xixixi, a winning half-brother to Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, will begin his stud career in 2016 at Xanthus Farm near Gettysburg, Pa. The 4-year-old son of Maimonides will stand for a fee of $5,000.

Xixixi won twice, both times at six furlongs, in 17 career starts, earning $83,299. He last raced when sixth on a sloppy track in the Mr. Prospector Stakes in June at Monmouth Park.

Xixixi is the first foal out of the Yankee Gentleman mare Littleprincessemma, with American Pharoah following a year later. American Pharoah, who concluded his historic career by winning the Breeders’ Cup Classic, will begin his stallion career at Coolmore’s Ashford Stud in Versailles, Ky., for a fee of $200,000.

I think they should also send APs groom and the Zayat son that cant spell to stud to... what an over hyped over the top reality show type of year played out this year in horse racing... All I know they lost me -- I'm a multi decade long bettor that gave up because of this sensationalism staged type of year. But hey it was good for horse racing and brought a lot of new bettor -- right --- WRONG! helped kill the sport.

"too" not "to". It's ironic that you used improper grammar in the same sentence where you were accusing someone of not knowing how to spell.

I believe this horse was running on Maryland circuit in low level claiming ranks earlier this year. Not exactly the same comparison as Giants Causeway and Freud.
