Corfu retired to Bridlewood Farm in Florida

Grade 2 winner Corfu will begin his stud career in 2014 at Bridlewood Farm in Ocala.

Grade 2 winner Corfu has been retired from racing, and will stand the 2014 breeding season at Bridlewood Farm in Ocala, Fla., for an advertised fee of $3,500.

The 3-year-old son of Malibu Moon finishes his career with two wins in six starts for earnings of $214,200, highlighted by a win in the Grade 2 Saratoga Special Stakes. He also finished second in the Grade 2 Futurity Stakes as a juvenile.

Todd Pletcher trained Corfu for the Coolmore partnership of Susan Magnier, Michael Tabor, and Derrick Smith. He was a $675,000 purchase at the 2013 Barretts March sale of 2-year-olds in training, secured by Coolmore’s bloodstock advisor Demi O’Byrne, as agent.

“We are very excited about Corfu and his tremendous potential as a stallion at Bridlewood,” said George G. Isaacs, Bridlewood general manager. “Corfu demonstrated precociousness and brilliance on the track, and he’s a very good physical by a current top sire. I firmly believe Florida breeders are going to love him. Corfu is available for inspection immediately, and I invite people to come out to the farm and see just how impressive he is.”

Bred in Kentucky by AGS Thoroughbreds, Corfu is out of the winning Forest Wildcat mare Fashion Cat. Fashion Cat is a half-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner Peace Rules and stakes winner Wild Fashion.
