Texas stallion Wimbledon relocated to Key Ranch


Grade 2 winner Wimbledon will stand the 2015 breeding season at Joe Kerby’s Key Ranch in Salado, Texas for an advertised fee of $2,000.

The 13-year-old Wild Rush horse, who has been sold to Texas-based Jack Cook, previously stood at Valor Farm near Pilot Point, Texas.

Wimbledon is the sire of six crops of racing age, led by Worldventurer, who was named Texas Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male in 2013, after being named the state’s champion 2-year-old male. Wimbledon’s other stakes winners include Daphne Angela, Chicks a Flyin, and Circustown Rose.

Bred in Kentucky by Sabine Stables, Wimbledon won two of 11 career starts for earnings of $433,818, highlighted by a victory in the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby. He is out of the winning Darn That Alarm mare Strawberry Clover, who is the dam of two winners from five foals to race. Wimbledon is from the family of Grade 3 winner Mining Burrah.
