Sires Will He Shine, Act of Duty moving to Saudi Arabia


Kentucky sire Will He Shine and Florida stallion Act of Duty are headed to Saudi Arabia in private purchases brokered by Chad Schumer’s Schumer Bloodstock.

Schumer declined to identify the horses’ buyer or buyers or where they would stand, confirming only that they will go to Saudi Arabia.

Will He Shine, winner of the 2007 True North Handicap and a half-brother to Grade 1 winner Cuvee, stood this year at Millennium Farms for $2,500. The 10-year-old Silver Deputy horse is the sire of such winners as Hewillglittrnshine and Luckysdream from two racing-age crops.

Bridlewood Farm’s Act of Duty is a half-brother to multiple graded winner and sire Northern Afleet and to Grade 1 winner Tap to Music. A son of the stakes-winning Nureyev mare Nuryette, he sired Grade 3 winner Fly by Phil and stakes-placed Delightful Dawn. The 12-year-old Mr. Prospector horse stood at the Ocala, Fla., farm for $2,000 this year.
