Captain Bodgit goes to New York


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Captain Bodgit, sire of Grade 3 winner Windward Passage, will relocate to Questroyal Stud in New York in 2003.

An 8-year-old Saint Ballado horse, Captain Bodgit will stand for $5,000 at Questroyal Hudson farm. That is half of his 2002 fee at Margaux Stud near Midway, Ky.

Questroyal announced the relocation as part of what it termed an "interstate shuttle stallion program" that will send stallions from Kentucky to New York for a minimum of two years. Questroyal and Margaux will jointly market Captain Bodgit, who could return to Kentucky in 2005, depending on the success of his next two crops. Captain Bodgit is the sire of two crops to date and has total progeny earnings of $1,336,584 from 88 starters.
