Grade 1 winner Telling retired to Stonewall

STONEWALL Farm in Florida has gained a late recruit to their stallion roster for 2012 in Grade 1 winner Telling. A fee for the Darley-bred eight-year-old son of A.P. Indy will be announced at a later date.

Telling retires as the winner of six races and nearly $850,000 in earnings headlined by back-to-back victories in the Grade 1 Sword Dancer Invitational Stakes at Saratoga for Alex and JoAnn Lieblong, who purchased him privately from Darley.

He was also placed in a trio of Grade 3 turf stakes.

"Acquiring Telling is tremendous for the Florida breeding industry," said Michelle Hemingway, director of bloodstock at Stonewall. "Florida has asked for A.P. Indy-line sires, and we are providing them. We have three in our roster. Telling is especially exciting, as he is a multiple grade I winner.

"Our goal in Florida is to bring regal stallions and pedigrees to the industry to allow Florida to be a mecca for Thoroughbred breeders."

Telling is out of the Deputy Minister mare Well Chosen, winner of the 1998 Grade 1 Ashland Stakes.
