LEXINGTON, Ky. - Eurosilver, the sire of Sunday's Miesque Stakes winner, Neversaidiwassweet, has moved from Dromoland Farm in Kentucky to Penn Ridge Farms in Pennsylvania in time for the 2011 breeding season. He will stand for $3,500 in 2011, down from $6,000 this year.

Dromoland owner Gerry Dilger and partners will retain their ownership of the 9-year-old Unbridled's Song horse.

"Eurosilver already ranks among Pennsylvania's top 10 leading sires and is the number-two second-crop sire in the state," said Dilger. "We are very excited about his prospects there."

Eurosilver's other stakes-winners are Euro Platinum and Golden Euro, as well as Korean champion Gippeumnuri. He has two crops of racing age and progeny earnings totaling more than $2.4 million.

A son of the Nijinsky II mare Russian Tango, Eurosilver won the Grade 2 Breeders' Futurity and Grade 3 Skip Away Handicap in 2003 and 2005, respectively. He also was runner-up in three stakes, most importantly the Grade 1 Stephen Foster in 2005.
