Canadian Frontier relocated to Louisiana

CANADIAN Frontier, sire of Grade 1 winners Hilda's Passion and No Such Word, will relocate in 2012 from Airdrie Stud in Kentucky to Le Mesa Stallions in Louisiana.

The 12-year-old son of Gone West will stand at Le Mesa Stallions alongside another former Aidrie stallion, Yankee Gentleman, at a a fee of$3,500 on stands-and-nurses terms. That figure is reduced to $3,000 if payment is made on November 1.

Grade 3 winner Canadian Frontier has sired six stakes winners from four crops of racing age led by Hilda's Passion, successful in this season's Grade 1 Ballerina Stakes. The four-year-old filly was sold for $1.225 million to Katsumi Yoshida at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale earlier this month.
