WinStar Farm getting four stallions from Pauls Mill


WinStar Farm in Versailles, Ky., has acquired interests in the four stallions standing at Pauls Mill farm and will relocate them to WinStar’s property for the 2012 breeding season, the farms announced on Friday.

The stallions include Bellamy Road, Artie Schiller, Summer Bird, and US Ranger. The first crops of both Bellamy Road and Artie Schiller hit the track last year. Summer Bird covered his first mares last year, and US Ranger stood his first year in 2011.

WinStar’s president is Elliott Walden. His older brother, Ben, owns and operates Pauls Mill farm. As a result of the transaction, Pauls Mill will remain a “Thoroughbred farm, but will no longer stand stallions,” a release from the farms said.

Bellamy Road is currently third on the second-crop sire list, and has sired four graded stakes winners in his first two crops. His stud fee was $10,000 in 2011.

WinStar said that stallion fees for the 2012 season will be announced at a later date.
