Courageous Cat retired, to stand at Lane's End


LEXINGTON, Ky. – Millionaire Courageous Cat has retired from racing and will stand for a $10,000 during his initial year at Lane’s End Farm in Kentucky, the Versailles, Ky., farm announced Wednesday.

Lane’s End’s owner, William Farish, bought an unspecified interest in the 5-year-old Storm Cat colt earlier this year from Courageous Cat’s owners and breeders, Pam and Marty Wygod.

Courageous Cat will stand on stands-and-nurses terms.

Courageous Cat retires with five stakes wins, four of them graded, most notably in this year’s Grade 1 Shoemaker Mile. He has earned more than $1.1 million from 6 wins, 3 seconds, and 2 thirds in 15 lifetime starts. He is out of two-time Grade 1-winning millionaire Tranquility Lake, whose other Grade 1-winning Storm Cat son, After Market, also stands at Lane’s End.
