Schumer Bloodstock in deals with Saudis


Chad Schumer’s Schumer Bloodstock in Louisville, Ky., has bought three stallions and one stallion prospect for export to a variety of stud farms in Saudi Arabia.

The deal will send Shaniko from Moon Lake Farm in Louisiana, Sabre d’Argent from Bridlewood Farm in Florida, and Dance to Destiny from Sam-Son Farms in Canada. It also will export Darley Stud’s 5-year-old A. P. Indy horse Tranquil Manner, third in Quality Road’s Woodward last year.

Shaniko, also an A. P. Indy son out of Sapphire n’ Silk, is the sire of stakes-placed Native Niko. Sabre d’Argent, by Kris S. out of Sterling Pound, has four stakes-placed runners in the United States. And Dance to Destiny, by Mr. Prospector out of Dance Smartly, has sired stakes-winner Me the Sea and G T and stakes-placed Dreamy Moonlite.
