Nicanor won 4 of 18 career starts and earned $147,697.

Nicanor, a stakes-placed full brother to 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, will enter stud in 2013 at Shamrock Farm in Woodbine, Md.

The 6-year-old Dynaformer horse will stand for a fee of $2,500.

Nicanor, campaigned as a homebred by Roy and Gretchen Jackson's Lael Stable, won four of 18 career starts, earning $147,697. He finished third in both the Sussex Stakes at Delaware Park and the Three Coins Up Stakes at Aqueduct in 2010.

Nicanor's dam, the multiple graded stakes-placed Carson City mare La Ville Rouge, is best known for producing Barbaro, who captured three other graded stakes - including the Grade 1 Florida Derby - in 2006 prior to winning the Kentucky Derby.

Nicanor also is a full brother to stakes winner Lentenor - who enters stud in 2013 at Calumet Farm - and stakes-placed winner Margano, as well as a half-brother to stakes winner Holy Ground.
