Major Gain will stand the 2016 season at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Grade 3 winner Major Gain has been retired from racing and will stand the 2016 season at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., for an advertised fee of $2,500 live foal, with other options available.

The 7-year-old son of More Than Ready won 3 of 21 starts for earnings of $161,115, highlighted by a win in the Grade 3 Arlington-Washington Futurity and a third-place finish in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes. He first raced for breeders Gary and Mary West and trainer Wayne Catalano, then later for owner and trainer Louie Roussel III.

“Genomics assessed by ThoroughGen tell us his score of 91 is higher than many of the nation’s leading sires and is the second-highest score of any major sire in New York, only Freud is higher at 94,” said Joe McMahon of McMahon of Saratoga. “Currently being syndicated for $5,000 per share at 50 shares, shareholders will get three seasons for the first three years and one breeding thereafter, or a lifetime breeding right can be purchased for $3,500.”

Major Gain is out of the Grade 3-placed Old Trieste mare Dream Lady, whose three winners from as many runners also includes Grade 1-winning full sister Room Service and Grade 2-placed stakes winner Oscar Party. His extended family includes Argentine classic winner Zapata and Grade 3 winner Lilly Capote.
