Grade 2 winner Cowboy Cal to stand at Pin Oak

COWBOY CAL, a triple Grade 2 winner in the US this season, has been retired to stand at Pin Oak Stud in Kentucky.

The Todd Pletcher-trained son of Giant's Causeway, who was one of the few horses to be retained by Robert and Janice McNair following the sale of their Stonerside racing and breeding operation to Sheikh Mohammed, retires as the winner of seven races from 19 starts.

Josephine Abercrombie, owner of Pin Oak Stud which also stands Broken Vow, Bob And John and Sky Classic, said: "He's a grand-looking horse. We're very excited to have a top son of Giant's Causeway join our roster."

As well as landing a trio of Grade 2 races, Cowboy Cal ran placed in the Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes on Keeneland's Polytrack surface and theGrade 1 Citation Handicap on turf.

Bred by Stonerside Stable, Cowboy Cal is the fourth foal of Texas Tammy, a Seeking The Gold half-sister to the top-class Behrens.

His fee will be announced at a later date.
