Stakes winner Lentenor, full brother to Barbaro, retired to Calumet


Lentenor, a full brother to 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, has been retired and will enter stud in 2013 at Calumet Farm in Lexington, Ky.

A stud fee and terms for the 5-year-old Dynaformer horse are pending.

Campaigned as a homebred by Roy and Gretchen Jackson’s Lael Stables, Lentenor won 4 of 17 career starts for earnings of $184,406. He captured the Kitten’s Joy Stakes in July at Colonial Downs and also established a course record at Tampa Bay Downs last year, running 1 1/16 miles on turf in 1:40.95.

Lentenor’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 events – including the Grade 1 Florida Derby – in 2006 prior to winning the Kentucky Derby.

Lentenor also is a full brother to stakes-placed winners Nicanor and Margano as well as a half-brother to stakes winner Holy Ground.

Lentenor becomes the third member of the Calumet roster for 2013, joining 2010 Melbourne Cup winner Americain – also a son of the late Dynaformer – and multiple graded stakes winner Aikenite.
