Harlan's Holiday moves to WinStar Farm


Harlan’s Holiday, an 11-year-old sire of 18 stakes winners, will stand at WinStar Farm outside Versailles, Ky., in 2011 after the farm purchased a “significant interest” in the horse, WinStar announced on Wednesday. A son of Harlan, Harlan’s Holiday had stood the 2010 season at Airdrie Stud.

Harlan’s Holiday will stand for $25,000 in 2011, WinStar said. Out of the Affirmed mare Christmas in Aiken, Harlan’s Holiday has progeny earnings of $13.9 million from four crops of racing age, and is the sire of 2010 champion sprint contender Majesticperfection.

During his three-year racing career, Harlan’s Holiday won three Grade 1 races, including the 2002 Blue Grass Stakes and Florida Derby, and the 2003 Donn Handicap.
