Forest Danger and Chelokee on the move
GRADE 1 winner Forest Danger has been transferred to Thomas Wente's WinRich Farm in North Vernon, Indiana, for the 2010 season where he will stand alongside Chief Seattle, Evil Minister and High Fly for a private fee.
The son of Forestry has stood the entirety of his stud career to date at Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky, the first three seasons for $20,000.
Forest Danger's first crop raced last season and included ten winners from 40 runners, which saw him reach 29th place on the US leadingfirst season sires' list.
Forest Danger won five of eight starts, including the Grade 1 Carter Handicap and Grade 3 Bay Shore Stakes.
Also on the move is the Grade 1 Florida Derby third Chelokee, who will stand at the University of Arizona Equine Center following his donation to the university's thoroughbred breeding programme by Centennial Farm.
The son of Cherokee Run, who captured the attention of the racing public when surviving surgery to fuse his right fetlock joint following a breakdown in the Grade 3 Alysheba Stakes, stood his first season last year at Vinery in Kentucky. He covered 24 mares at a fee of $7,500.
Chelokee will stand for $2,500 in 2010.
