Multiple Grade 1 stakes winner and millionaire Gormley, who ranks 10th among third crop national sire by cumulative earnings, has moved from Spendthrift Farms to Red River Farms in Coushatta, Louisiana.
Gormley broke his maiden in his first start at two. His trainer, John Shirreffs, was so impressed with his maiden victory that he entered him in the Grade 1 FrontRunner Stakes, which he won by three lengths over Klimt, winner of the Del Mar Futurity.
At 3, he won the G1 Santa Anita Derby as well as the G3 Sham Stakes. He won four times from a total of nine starts at two and three and earned $1,026,000 in his racing career.
The son of Malibu Moon out of the Bernstein mare, Race to Urga, was bred in Kentucky by Castleton Lyons & Kilboy Estate, and raced for Jerry and Ann Moss who purchased Gormley privately as a yearling.
A national third crop leading sire, Gormley has progeny earnings approaching $7 million and has 11 stakes horses to his credit, including G1 placed G2 stakes winner High Oak, plus graded placed winners Moody Woman, Mama Rina, and Headline Report, as well as three time Accredited Louisiana Bred stakes winner Bron and Brow.
Purchased by Nathan C. Granger, Gormley will stand at Red Rivers Farms for a 2024 fee of $2,500.
