Etc. . . .


Stonewall Stallions Ocala, the Florida division of Audrey Haisfield's Kentucky-based Stonewall Stallions, has pensioned 23-year-old Marquetry from stud duty due to declining fertility. A Conquistador Cielo horse, he is a $2.8 million earner and multiple Grade 1 winner. He sired a pair of sprint champions in Artax (1999) and Squirtle Squirt (2001) and numerous other graded stakes winners. . . . Penny Chenery, whose Meadow Stable raced Secretariat and Riva Ridge, has donated one of her original watercolors to be auctioned at the Belmont Bash, to be held at the Garden City Hotel on Long Island on June 3 to benefit the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation and the Backstretch Employee Services Team.
