Hurricane Hall stallions to be relocated

HURRICANE HALL president Ben P. Walden jnr has announced that the farm's stallion operation will be relocated to his recently purchased 265-acre Pauls Mill in Woodford County near Versailles in Kentucky.

Breeders' Cup Mile winner Artie Schiller and Wood Memorial Stakes winner Bellamy Road, both represented by their first crops of yearlings this year, and Grade 2 winner Teuflesberg, whose first crop are foals, will be transferred to Pauls Mill next month.

Hurricane Hall was founded in 2006 and originally owned by Walden, Pat Madden, David Hanley and Brad Kelley. Walden and Madden recently acquired 100 per cent of the stallion operation, while Kelley bought the 403 acres of land on which Hurricane Hall operates.

Plans for the farm's other stallion, the six-time Grade 1 winner English Channel, who is owned by Kelley and James Scatuorchio, have yet to be finalised.

Walden said in a statement: "Brad Kelley is an exceptional friend to me and it was only natural that he take the next step and dohis own thing in the horse business. Pat, myself, and our other broodmare partners plan to continue our support of English Channel every step of the way."
