Sir Shackleton switched to Pennsylvania

GRADE 2 winner Sir Shackleton, whose first crop of yearlings are going through the ring this autumn, has been transferred from Castleton Lyons in Kentucky to stand at Gayle Gerth's Dana Point Farm in Pennsylvania for the 2010 breeding season.

Castleton Lyons president Shane Ryan said: "We are delighted that we have been able to arrange for Sir Shackleton to stand at Dana Point in 2010 as we were very impressed with the good work that Gayle and her general manager Maria Vorhauer's team accomplished with Wiseman's Ferry there this season.

"Dana Point has certainly developed a very professional reputation in the Pennsylvania stallion market in a very short period of time.

"We believe that the Pennsylvania Breeders Program offers breeders there a tremendous opportunity to gain reward for the big commitment they make to the bloodstock industry."

Sir Shackleton, a son of Miswaki out of Grade 1-placed Naskra Colors, will stand at a fee of $2,500 in 2010 – half his advertised fee for this year.
