City Wolf to stand at Pleasant Acres Stallions in Florida


City Wolf, a Grade 3-winning half-brother to Horse of the Year Ghostzapper and Grade 1 winner City Zip, has been retired from racing and will stand the 2014 breeding season at Pleasant Acres Stallions in Morriston, Fla., for an advertised fee of $4,000, payable when the foal stands and nurses.

The 6-year-old Giant’s Causeway horse retires with four wins in 18 starts for earnings of $293,686, campaigning as a homebred for Frank Stronach. He raced primarily in Canada, winning the Grade 3 Durham Cup at Woodbine in 2011 and finishing second the Grade 3 Seagram Cup, as well as the 2012 Renewal of the Durham Cup.

City Wolf is out of 2005 Broodmare of the Year Baby Zip, who is the dam of eight winners from 11 foals to race. Both Ghostzapper and City Zip went on to become prominent Kentucky sires at Stronach’s Adena Springs following their racing careers. He is from the family of Grade 3 winners Northern Causeway, Really Mr Greeley, and Everyday Heroes.

City Wolf joins Anthony’s Cross, Beau Choix, Passion for Gold, Pollard’s Vision, Poseidon’s Warrior, and Treasure Beach on the Pleasant Acres stallion roster for 2014.
