El Corredor, sire of 7 Grade 1 winners, moving from Kentucky to New York


El Corredor, sire of 2012 stakes winner and Test third-place finisher Beautiful But Blue, will move from Kentucky to New York for the 2013 breeding season, according to Questroyal Stud, which will stand him at its new Stillwater, N.Y., facility.

El Corredor formerly stood at Hill ’n’ Dale Farms in Lexington, Ky., where he had a $10,000 advertised fee this year.

The Mr. Greeley horse will stand for $7,500 (stands and nurses) next year, according to Questroyal.

Now 15, El Corredor is the sire of seven Grade 1 winners, including Adieu, Backseat Rhythm, Dominican, and Crisp. El Corredor himself won the 2000 Cigar Mile Handicap and has more than $30 million in total progeny earnings. He is out of the Silver Deputy mare Silvery Swan, making him a half-brother to Roman Ruler. El Corredor is the sire of eight stakes winners this year.
