INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Whatsthescript, the winner of 6 of 19 starts and $907,964, will enter stud at Tommy Town Thoroughbreds in Santa Ynez, Calif., next year, the farm announced earlier this week.

Whatsthescript is currently in training with John Sadler. A 5-year-old by Royal Applause, Whatsthescript won five stakes, including two Grade 2 stakes in 2008, the American and Del Mar Mile handicaps on turf. During that season, he was second in the Grade 1 Eddie Read Handicap and third in the Breeders' Cup Mile.

This year, Whatsthescript has run exclusively in graded stakes, with his best result a third in the Grade 1 Eddie Read Stakes at Del Mar.

Whatsthescript races for Tommy Town's owners, Tom and Debbie Stull. He will stand for $4,000.

Loveacres gets three new stallions

Terry Lovingier has added three stallions to his San Diego County farm for the 2010 breeding season, he said on Thursday.

Lovingier's Lovacres Farm will stand Bushwacker, Time to Get Even, and Rivergrade Boy.

Time to Get Even will stand for $4,000. He was recently retired after a career of 3 wins in 16 starts and earnings of $150,084, highlighted by a win in the Grade 3 Laz Barrera Stakes at Hollywood Park in 2007. By Stephen Got Even, Time to Get Even ran in claiming sprints and optional claimers earlier this year.

Bushwacker, who won the Grade 3 Vernon Underwood Stakes at Hollywood Park in 2008, will stand for $3,000. By Outflanker, Bushwacker, 7, was second in the Hollywood Prevue Stakes in 2004 and third in the Sunshine Millions Sprint in 2006. He was unplaced in the final start of his career, the $2 million Dubai Golden Shaheen in March 2008.

Rivergrade Boy, by Grand Slam, won 3 of 25 starts and $144,334. His best result in a stakes was a second-place finish in the 2007 Beau Brummel Stakes at Fairplex Park. Rivergrade Boy, 4, will stand for $2,500.

Lovingier will now have five stallions at his farm. The three new additions joined Awesome Gambler and Rio Verde. Lovingier said that the stallion Nineeleven was sold to a farm in Mexico earlier this year.

He said the expansion of his stallion roster at the 500-acre farm "just kind of happened."

Lovingier, 52, lives in Los Alamitos and has a construction firm that specializes in oil refineries. Earlier this year, he said he was reducing that work commitment to spend more time with horses. That commitment is to focus on California racing and his farm, he said.

"I've been buying broodmares for a while," he said. "Having a strong broodmare band is the big thing. I'm not going anywhere. I'm staying here in California."

Lovingier emphasizes 2-year-old racing in his stable. Earlier this year, he campaigned Unbridled Meeting, who won the CARF Debutante Stakes at Golden Gate Fields and was third in the Generous Portion Stakes at Del Mar, and Grace Upon Grace, who finished second in the Willard Proctor Memorial Stakes at Hollywood Park and the Graduation Stakes at Del Mar.

Both horses were turned out in the fall. Unbridled Meeting just returned to training and could start at the upcoming Santa Anita winter-spring meeting.

Lovingier expects to have 40 2-year-olds racing in California in 2010, when juvenile racing begins in March.

"I've got a bunch of new partners running with me," he said. "I've got at least 40 I think will be competitive. I've got partners on most of them.

"We're ready to go. My filly crop is super strong next year."
