Half Ours transferred to stand in Louisiana

CLEAR Creek Stud in Louisiana has gained a new recruit for the 2010 breeding season in first-crop foal sire Half Ours.

Half Ours is by Unbridled's Song and out of Zing, a Storm Cat sister to Yankee Gentleman – who, incidentally, is also being transferred to stand inLouisiana next year.

Originally purchased as a yearling for $625,000 in 2004, Half Ours made $6.1 million at the 2006 Keeneland November sale when Aaron Jones bought out co-owner Barry Schwartz.

At four Half Ours won the Grade 2 Richter Scale Breeders' Cup Sprint Championship before being retired to Taylor Made Farms in Kentucky.

His first crop of foals has been on display at this autumn's auctions, with individuals selling for as much as $80,000 and one of his daughters making $50,000 to become the joint top lot in one of the later sessions of the Keeneland November sale.

Half Ours will stand his first season in Louisiana at a fee of $5,000.
