Grade 2 winner Fairbanks to stud

GRADE 2 winner Fairbanks will enter stud at Northview Stallion Station in Pennsylvania next year at a fee of $7,500.

Thefive-year-old son of Giant's Causeway, who topped the 2004 Saratoga Select Yearling Sale at $1.85m, has been retired following an unplaced effort in the Breeders' Cup Classic for trainer Todd Pletcher.

Fairbanks retires as the winner of nearly $900,000 in earnings thanks to victories in the Grade 2 Hawthorne Gold Cup and Grade 3 Tokyo City Handicap. The Team Valor International colour-bearer also ran second in the Grade 1 Suburban Handicap and Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap.

Out of the Time For A Change mare Alaskan Queen, Fairbanks is a half-brother to Grade 2 winner Keats, now at stud in Louisana.
