(Edited press release)
Sequel Stallions New York announced Wednesday that the first four mares bred to Destin (Giant’s Causeway) are confirmed in foal.
“We are so excited about the popularity of Destin in his first year and couldn’t be happier that he is proficient in his new job. He has great libido and is getting the job done on some very nice mares,” said Sequel’s Becky Thomas.
A full brother to Grade 1 stakes winning sire Creative Cause, Destin set a new track record in the Grade 2, 1 1/16-mile Tampa Bay Derby winning by a length in 1:42 4/5. Three months later he was defeated a nose by Creator in the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes. Destin retired with 5 wins, 2 seconds and 2 thirds in 15 starts with earnings of $947,800.
Five-year-old Destin is out of millionaire Dream Of Summer who won the 2005 Grade 1 Apple Blossom at Oaklawn Park. She is a multiple graded-stakes winning, graded-stakes producer with over $2.3 million in progeny earnings. Destin is also full brother to graded stakes winning filly Vexatious, as well as half-brother to black type placed producer, Taboo.
Destin stands at Sequel New York for Gainesway Farm, Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Twin Creeks Farm and Sequel New York for a fee of $6,500 LFSN.
