Sequel Stallions New York will hold its 2023 Stallion Open House from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Stallion Barn located at 167 Maple Lane in Hudson.

The 2023 roster is led by New York’s most popular sire by number of mares bred in 2021 and 2022, the state’s only son of four-time leading sire Into Mischief, Honest Mischief, who will stand for $6,500 LFSN.  The royally bred, precocious bay is New York’s leading sire of weanlings in 2022 and will continue to be backed by a syndicate led by Sequel, with global powerhouse Juddmonte Farm in support.

New to Sequel’s roster for 2023 is Laoban’s Grade 2-winning and multiple Grade 1-placed Keepmeinmind. An earner of $903,237, Keepmeinmind retires with the full support of the ownership group having already committed 25 top mares, including Better Not Cry, the daughter of $14 million broodmare purchase and Grade 2 winner Better Than Honour (in foal to Medaglia d’Oro) and Grade 1 winner and $1.3 million broodmare Diplomat Lady (in foal to Vino Rosso).

Multiple leading sire Freud and Mission Impazible will stand the 2023 season privately. Freud is New York’s leading sire by lifetime earnings and lifetime number of black-type winners and is the versatile full brother to Giant’s Causeway. He has lifetime progeny earnings of more than $70 million. Unbridled’s Song’s Grade 1-performing millionaire Mission Impazible has progeny earnings of more than $12 million dollars with 46 percent winners.

“We want to give our breeders a chance to be profitable,” said Sequel owner Becky Thomas. “The recent sales in Kentucky have clearly demonstrated breeding in Kentucky does not guarantee a profit. The lower stallion fees, no transportation or boarding costs coupled with the lucrative purse structure NYRA offers and resulting awards will give our breeders the best opportunity.”

The 2023 Sequel New York roster:
Freud Private
Honest Mischief $6,500 LFSN
Keepmeinmind $6,500 LFSN
Mission Impazible Private

Multiple mare discounts are available as well as incentives for repeat breeders.
