Golden Gear moves to California


Ron Stolich's Blooming Hills Farm in California, which last week completed an agreement to purchase Kentucky stallion You and I, has also added Grade 2 winner Golden Gear to its stallion roster.

You and I will stand for $6,500 live foal, and Golden Gear, a 12-year-old Gulch horse, will stand for $3,000 live foal, according to Lynn Aebi, administrative manager of Blooming Hills.

Golden Gear previously stood at Signature Stallions, formerly DunHill Stud, in Florida for $4,000. He is the sire of three crops to race, including 2001 Canadian juvenile filly champion Ginger Gold.
