Invisible Ink moving to stand in Pennsylvania


Invisible Ink, runner-up in the 2001 Kentucky Derby after nearly losing his life at 2, will relocate to Pennsylvania’s Pin Oak Lane Farm.

The 12-year-old previously stood in Ocala, Fla., at Rising Hill Farm. His 2011 stud fee at Pin Oak Lane in New Freedom, Pa., will be the same as his 2010 fee, $1,500, but breeders sending two or more mares to him will receive a $500 discount on the 2011 fee.

Invisible Ink, by Thunder Gulch, is the sire of 35 winners from a total racing-age crop of 90 foals. His runners include multiple stakes-winner and $308,000 earner Fearless Eagle and Blessink, a Panamanian champion.

As a 2-year-old, Invisible Ink developed a near-fatal case of colitis. After his recovery, he went on to finish third in the Grade 1 Florida Derby and second in the Kentucky Derby behind Monarchos. He won 4 of his 14 lifetime starts, finished second or third four times, and earned $465,088.

Invisible Ink is out of the Conquistador Cielo winner Conquistress. He is a half-brother to stakes-placed Inner Circle
