Grade 2 winner Cool Coal Man will be exported to Iran after selling to bloodstock agent Marco Bozzi for $25,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky winter mixed sale. Cool Coal Man previously resided at Journeyman Stud in Ocala, where he was advertised at $3,500 in 2016.

“I bought him for his grandsire line, A.P. Indy, [which] is very attractive for the Iranian breeders,” Bozzi said. “His racing career influenced the purchase, and obviously his great conformation. In Iran, the races are on the dirt, and he is a great opportunity for the country.”

The 12-year-old Mineshaft horse has sired four crops of racing age, with 43 winners and progeny earnings in excess of $1.9 million. His best horses are Puerto Rican Group 2 winner Valery Stripe and U.S. stakes-placed Competitive Player.

Cool Coal Man won 10 of 30 starts and earned $929,728, highlighted by wins in the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth Stakes and the non-graded Skip Away Stakes, Albert the Great Stakes, Spend a Buck Stakes, and Lord of the Night Stakes.

His five additional graded stakes placings include a third in the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational, and he competed in the 2008 Kentucky Derby.

Bred in Kentucky by a partnership including William S. Farish and the E.J. Judson Jr. Irrevocable Trust, Cool Coal Man is out of the winning Rubiano mare Coral Sea, who is the dam of seven winners from 10 foals to race also including multiple stakes winner Kathleens Reel and Grade 3-placed Battle Midway.

Cool Coal Man is from the family of English and Irish champion Storm Bird, multiple Canadian champion Northernette, and Chilean champion Desert Power.
