I'll Have Another will stand for about $38,900 in 2013 at at Big Red Farm in Hokkaido, Japan.

Dual classic winner I’ll Have Another will enter stud for a fee of 3.2 million yen, or about $38,900, in 2013 at Big Red Farm in Hokkaido, Japan.

I’ll Have Another, a son of Flower Alley campaigned by J. Paul Reddam, won the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby in April before taking the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. His bid to become American racing’s 12th Triple Crown winner ended when he was retired with tendonitis in his left front leg the day before the Belmont Stakes.

I’ll Have Another, who is out of the Arch mare Arch’s Gal Edith, ended his career with five wins from seven starts, including four graded stakes wins, for earnings of $2,693,600.

In late June, Reddam announced that I’ll Have Another had been sold to Shigeyuki Okada’s Big Red Farm for an undisclosed price. The colt will become the third Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner in the last three decades to begin his stud career in Japan, joining the late Sunday Silence (1989) and War Emblem (2002), who stands at Shadai Stallion Station.

Among other Big Red Farm stallions, two-time Breeders Cup Turf winner Conduit will stand for 2.5 million yen, or approximately $30,400. His first foals are 2-year-olds of 2013.

Roses in May, winner of the 2004 Whitney Handicap and 2005 Dubai World Cup, will stand for a fee of about $8,500 with a live foal guarantee, or $12,150 when the foal stands and nurses.

Big Red Farm’s leading sire Stay Gold, a son of Sunday Silence who produced 2011 Japanese Horse of the Year Orfevre, already has his book full for 2013.
