Discreetly Mine has stood at Lane's End for six years.

Discreetly Mine, who had stood at Lane’s End in Kentucky for six years, has been sold to stand at Norman Fox’s Haras Lascala in Uruguay. The deal was brokered by Chad Schumer of Schumer Bloodstock in association with Diego Mitagstein of Perhaps Bloodstock and Pablo Núñez.

By Mineshaft out of Pretty Discreet, by Private Account, Discreetly Mine has sired three stakes winners in his first three crops of racing age, though no graded stakes winners. He’s the sire of 2015 Juvenile Dirt Sprint Stakes winner Sheikh of Sheiks, Robert Hilton Memorial Stakes winner Control Stake, and Trinidad stakes winner Control Unit.

From 265 foals of racing age, Discreetly Mine has sired 147 starters and 81 winners, with progeny earnings of $4,197,649.

Bred and raced by E. Paul Robsham and trained by Todd Pletcher, he won five of 13 starts and earned $799,359 while racing at ages 2 and 3. In his final career start, he won the Grade 1 King’s Bishop Stakes. Earlier that year, he won the Grade 2 Risen Star, Grade 2 Amsterdam, and Grade 3 Jersey Shore. He was second in the Grade 1 Champagne Stakes at 2, when he won one of five starts.

Discreetly Mine, a half-brother to Grade 1 winner and sire Discreet Cat, retired to stand at Lane’s End for the 2011 season for a fee of $15,000. This past breeding season, he stood for 5,000.

“We’re pleased to acquire such a high-class racehorse and half-brother brother to successful Kentucky sire Discreet Cat for Mr. Fox’s farm,” Chad Schumer said. “What a wonderful option for Uruguayan breeders.”
