Ice Box, Florida Derby winner, moving to stand at Three Chimneys

Ice Box will maintain his $7,500 stud fee.

Ice Box, the winner of the 2010 Florida Derby who stood his first year at stud in 2012, will be moved from Calumet Farm in Lexington, Ky., to Three Chimneys in Midway, Ky., for the 2013 season, Three Chimneys announced on Thursday.

A son of Pulpit out of the Tabasco Cat mare Spice Island, Ice Box covered 94 mares at Calumet during the 2012 breeding season, according to Three Chimneys. He stood for $7,500 live foal, and his fee will remain the same for 2013, Three Chimneys said.

Calumet was sold earlier this year and leased to Kentucky businessman Brad Kelley. At the time of the sale, the farm stood two stallions, Ice Box and Cactus Ridge. Following the sale of the farm, representatives of Kelley said that both stallions would be moved after the 2012 breeding season.

In addition to his Florida Derby win in 2010, Ice Box finished second in the Kentucky Derby.

Well, I'm happy Three Chimneys will take in Ice Box. The article does not mention if Three Chimneys will be taking in Cactus Ridge as well. I hope Cactus Ridge finds a good place to be relocated to as well. The tale of Calumet is certainly cautionary and sad. As an aside, I love this picture of Ice Box by Barbara Livingston, his face is very memorable and the expression on his face is very sweet. Barbara takes such lovely pictures. She has a great gift.
