Former Argentine shuttler Bernstein to stay in Kentucky


BERNSTEIN is to sit out the next shuttle season at Castleton Lyons in Kentucky after seven years of shuttling to Argentina.

The 12-year-old son of Storm Cat's profile has surged in the last year, thanks to runners from his 2006 crop such as Dream Empress, winner of the Grade 1 Darley Alcibiades Stakes, and two-year-old Graded stakes winners Doremifasollatido and West Side Bernie.

The crop was his first conceived at Castleton Lyons, the operation established by the late Tony Ryan.

 "Bernstein is a very valuable asset to his owners, and in consultation with our friends and partners at Haras La Biznaga, we have decided to rest Bernstein at Castleton Lyons for another year," said Stuart Fitzgibbon, general commercial manager of the stud. "Bernstein will be bred to a full book of top-quality mares this season at Castleton Lyons."

Bernstein shuttled to Argentina from 2001-2007. The winner of the 1999 Group 3 Railway Stakes and the following year's Group 3 Concorde Stakes while racing for a partnership of Coolmore principals Michael Tabor and Sue Magnier, and Betty Moran, he is standing for a fee of $27,500.
