Becky Thomas and Boris Schwartzman announced that The Lieutenant, a graded stakes-winning half-brother to undefeated Triple Crown Champion and Horse of the Year Justify, will stand the 2019 Southern Hemisphere breeding season at Haras Barlovento, one of Peru’s leading stud farms.

The Lieutenant, who stands at Sequel Stallions New York, will be shuttling for the first time after his first breeding season in the U.S. He will go into quarantine at the end of June 2019. The Lieutenant’s first crop will arrive in 2020.

A bay colt by champion 2-year-old and Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense out of Kentucky Broodmare of the Year Stage Magic (Ghostzapper), The Lieutenant retired with $345,883 in earnings and Equibase Speed Figures of 116, 115, 110.

Trained in California by Mike McCarthy for Mr. and Mrs. William Warren, The Lieutenant won at Del Mar, Los Alamitos and Santa Anita at three and four. At five he captured the Grade 3 All American Stakes at Golden Gate Fields. The same year he finished second to multiple Grade 1 winner Diversify in Belmont’s Grade 2, $700,000 Suburban and placed in Santa Anita’s $200,000 Grade 2 Californian Stakes.

“We are so excited for The Lieutenant to have a summer job at a leading stud farm in Peru,” said Becky Thomas. “The team at Haras Barlovento has just been great and they have a superb broodmare band. He will be bred to beautiful mares by leading American sires Smart Strike, Unbridled, Giant’s Causeway, Candy Ride, Freud, Quiet American, Vindication, Stormy Atlantic, Mineshaft, Harlan’s Holiday, Johannesburg, Kitten’s Joy, Exchange Rate, Lookin at Lucky, Forest Wildcat, Dynaformer, Malibu Moon, Forestry, Pure Prize, Broken Vow, Sky Mesa, El Corredor and Grand Slam.

We are grateful to Marette Farrell for giving The Lieutenant another opportunity to prove himself as a sire. Given the success of Street Sense and his incredible family, we are sure The Lieutenant will become a highly sought after sire.”
