Schumer Bloodstock are delighted to announce that REDESDALE (Speightstown – Harpia by Danzig) will stand at McMahon Of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in New York for the 2020 season.
Campaigned by Chad Schumer and Brendan Walsh, Redesdale was the dominating winner of his first three starts over 6f.
Making Redesdale a particularly exciting addition to New York is the fact that he is a member of arguably the most powerful stallion family in the world.
By Speightstown, he is out of G3 winner Harpia, a Danzig sister to the outstanding stallion DANEHILL. Danehill sired 347 stakes winners during his illustrious stud career and is widely regarded as one of the greatest influences in the Stud Book.
Chad Schumer said: “I don’t think you can find a more powerful stallion family worldwide than that belonging to Razyana and Natalma, and for a competitive fee, Redesdale offers the breeders the chance to tap into just that.
“His race record offers a snapshot of the abundant talent that we know this horse possessed. We are in no doubt that he would have had the speed to be competitive with the best around had injury not intervened and we are looking forward to supporting him strongly at stud.”
“Redesdale showed exceptional talent to go undefeated through his first three starts. He is by Champion Sprinter and exceptional sire, Speightstown, out of a sister to Danehill, a 14 time Champion Sire who was a breed-shaping stallion on two continents, and is from the immediate family of Northern Dancer and Halo…” ALAN PORTER
Further in 2015, Schumer Bloodstock was awarded the contract for the exclusive listing rights to solicit offers for the purchase of an undivided 20% interest in Champion Curlin on behalf of the United States Government. The share was ultimately acquired by Hill ’n’ Dale Equine Holdings Inc. and Elevage II and today Curlin stands for a fee of $150,000 at Hill ’n’ Dale Farm. The son of Smart Strike is widely regarded as one of North America’s premier sires with numerous G1 winners to his credit and a number of emerging sons at stud including Exaggerator, Palace Malice and Keen Ice.
