Corinthian to Pin Oak Lane in Pennsylvania


Grade 1 winner Corinthian will relocate to Pin Oak Lane in New Freedom, Pa., for an advertised fee of $4,000 with discounts for multiple mares.

The 10-year-old son of Pulpit previously stood at Gainesway in Lexington, Ky., where he began his stud career in 2008. He has sired three crops of racing age with six stakes winners, including Mariel N Kathy, Junebugred, Ten Thirty, Muppet Man, Hunt Crossing, and Corinthian’s Jewel.

“We expect Corinthian to be a leading sire in the Mid-Atlantic for years to come,” said Dr. William Solomon, owner of Pin Oak Lane. “He has a good number of 2-year-olds, yearlings, and foals going forward and is an excellent breeding stallion who consistently settles over 92 percent.”

On the racetrack, Corinthian was a winner of six of 12 starts for earnings of $1,267,273. His most notable wins came in the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap, the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap, and the 2007 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, which was then ungraded.

Bred in Kentucky by Gracefield Equine and Hargus Sexton, Corinthian is out of the unraced Easy Goer mare Multiply, whose six winners from as many foals to race also includes Grade 2 winner Desert Hero. He is from the family of Group 1 winner Jade Robbery, Group 2 winner Lizard Island, and Grade/Group 3 winners Numerous and Prince of Hearts.
