High Fly to stand at Live Oak Stud


Grade 1 winner High Fly, retired in November with a condylar fracture, will stand at his owner and breeder's Live Oak Stud. High Fly will stand for $5,000 in 2006.

High Fly won the 2005 Florida Derby, Fountain of Youth, and Aventura Stakes. He also finished second this year in the Jerome Handicap and third in the Holy Bull Stakes. He retired about two months after finishing second to eventual Breeders' Cup Sprint winner Silver Train in the Jerome and left the track with a 5-1-1 record and $927,300. Nick Zito trained High Fly.

A 3-year-old Atticus colt out of Verbasle, High Fly is a half-brother to stakes-winner Smokey Mirage and United Arab Emirates graded winner Estimraar, both by Holy Bull.
