Cowboy Cal moves to Korea after standing at Pin Oak Stud in Kentucky last year.

The Korean stallion roster has added four new U.S. imports, including graded winners Concord Point and Cowboy Cal, for the 2017 breeding season.

They will join expats Colonel John and Take Charge Indy, sold to Korean interests late last year.

Concord Point, a 10-year-old son of Tapit, previously resided at Hill ‘n’ Dale Farm in Lexington, Ky., where he stood the 2016 season for $5,000.

Concord Point has four crops of racing age, with 57 winners and progeny earnings in excess of $2.8 million. His most successful runner is American Gal, whose juvenile campaign in 2016 included a win in the Anoakia Stakes, a runner-up effort in the Grade 1 Starlet Stakes, and a third-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Other notable runners by Concord Point include stakes winners My Point Exactly, Concord Fast, Arctic Ocean, Power Jam, Caledonian, Jungle Story, and Trill Point.

Concord Point won 4 of 6 starts for earnings of $669,260, highlighted by victories in the Grade 2 West Virginia Derby and Grade 3 Iowa Derby. He is out of the winning Boston Harbor mare Harve de Grace and is a half-brother to Grade 1 winner Off the Tracks and stakes-placed Inspired by Grace.

Cowboy Cal goes to Korea from Pin Oak Stud in Versailles, Ky., where he was advertised last year for $5,000

The 12-year-old Giant’s Causeway horse is the sire of five crops of racing age, with 125 winners and combined earnings of more than $8 million. He already has a foothold in the Korean market with Cowboy Son, the country’s champion 3-year-old imported colt of 2014.

Cowboy Cal’s leading foals also include Peruvian champion Mr. Ninja, Panamanian champion Pancha Mancha, and Grade 3-placed Hat of Jacks.

Cowboy Cal won 7 of 19 starts during his racing career for $1,037,810. He earned Grade 2 wins in the Strub Stakes, San Pasqual Handicap, and Oak Tree Mile and Grade 3 victories in the Bryan Station Stakes and Tropical Park Derby.

The stallion is out of the unplaced Seeking the Gold mare Texas Tammy and is from the family of multiple Grade 1 winner Behrens.

Mischievously retires to stud in Korea after winning 3 of 26 starts for $101,633.

The Indian Charlie horse was claimed for $7,500 in his final start at Finger Lakes by Judy Turetsky after previously running for owner My Purple Haze Stables and trainer Chris Englehart. He began his career as a homebred for the vaunted Phipps Stable and raced his entire career in New York and Maryland, specializing in sprints.

Mischievously is out of the unraced Mr. Prospector mare Illicit, whose three winners from six foals to race include Grade 2 winner and sire Gone Astray and German Group 3-placed Contentious. His second dam is the champion Inside Information.

Morning Calm, by Broken Vow, also retires to stud in Korea after a career that included 4 wins in 23 starts for $215,019, highlighted by a victory in the Raymond Earl Handicap at Gulfstream Park.
