Elnaawi will stand at Indiana Stallion Station for $2,500 in 2017.

Elnaawi, a Grade 1-placed stakes winner, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Indiana Stallion Station in Anderson, Ind., for the 2017 breeding season for an advertised fee of $2,500.

The 6-year-old son of Street Sense finishes with five wins in 22 starts over five seasons of racing for earnings of $407,305. He raced for owner Shadwell Stable and trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.

Elnaawi won the non-graded Native Dancer Stakes at Laurel Park in 2015 and finished third in the Grade 1 Donn Handicap later that year. He ran third in the Grade 3 Gotham Stakes in 2013 and third again in the Grade 2 Brooklyn Invitational Stakes earlier this year.

Bred in Kentucky by Siena Farms, Elnaawi is out of the stakes-winning Deputy Minister mare Pilfer, whose four winners from seven runners also include Grade 1 winners To Honor and Serve and Angela Renee.

Pilfer has been tied to strong auction performance, herself selling in foal to Bernardini for $1.95 million at the 2012 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky fall selected mixed sale.

Elnaawi sold to Shadwell for $500,000 as a yearling, while Bernardini colt Billion Star brought $750,000, and Bernardini filly Czarina sold for $1.5 million. Angela Renee, also by Bernardini, sold as a racing/broodmare prospect for $3 million at the 2015 Fasig-Tipton November sale.

Elnaawi’s extended family includes Grade 2 winner India and Grade 2-placed runners Misty Hour and Roberto’s Hope.
