Beautyinthepulpit had a racing career of eight wins from 31 starts.

Beautyinthepulpit, a multiple stakes-placed runner, will retire to Buckridge Farm in Kinderhook, N.Y., for the 2017 breeding season.

The 9-year-old son of Pulpit will stand for a private fee with the stud fee waived for mares who have black type anywhere in their first two dams, who earned more than $50,000 on the track, who have produced a winner of $50,000 or more, or for breeders who send more than one mare per season.

Beautyinthepulpit finishes his career with eight wins in 31 starts for earnings of $410,627.

Racing last for the partnership of Michael Dubb, Bethlehem Stables, and Gary Aisquith, and for trainer Rudy Rodriguez, Beautyinthepulpit had his strongest season in 2014, when he finished second in the Alex M. Robb Stakes at Aqueduct and third in Laurel Park’s Richard W. Small Stakes, the Empire Classic Handicap at Belmont, and the Kings Point Stakes at Aqueduct.

"Beautyinthepulpit represents a unique opportunity for budget-conscious New York breeders," Buckridge Farm owner Amy Boll said. "Not only is he by Pulpit, one of the most sought-after sires on the planet, he's also out of a New York graded-stakesp-winning Deputy Minister mare, and he's got the gorgeous shoulder you'd expect from that lineage.

“He won his debut at Saratoga in explosive fashion, maintained his form for six seasons of racing, and excelled at the sire-making one-mile distance,” Boll continued. “We're going to support him with our own mares, and we invite breeders to visit him in the coming months."

Bred in New York by Albert Fried Jr., Beautyinthepulpit is out of the Grade 2-winning Deputy Minister mare Stolen Beauty, whose nine winners from 10 foals to race also include stakes winner Moonlightandbeauty and stakes-placed Stolen Thunder.

His extended family includes multiple Canadian champion Eternal Search, Grade 2 winners This Ones For Phil and Finality, and Grade 3 winner Raslaan.

The deal to stand Beautyinthepulpit at Buckridge Farm was brokered by bloodstock agent Michael Slezak.
