Grade 3 winner by Speightstown will stand for $2,000.
A partnership recently closed on a deal to buy multiple graded-placed, grade 3 winner Strike Power , who will enter stud at Red River Farms near Coushatta, La. The 7-year-old son of Speightstown will stand for $2,000 with a stands and nurses guarantee.
“It’s a bit late but we think we’ll get a good first book of mares to him,” said Jay Adcock with Red River Farms. “Being by Speightstown and running a 102 Beyer in his first start were the first things that got our attention. Then he showed he could run two turns in the Fountain of Youth.”
A homebred for Don and Donna Adam’s Courtlandt Farm, Strike Power won his debut at 2 at Gulfstream Park by eight lengths with trainer Mark Hennig. At 3, he started off by winning the Swale Stakes (G3) and was second in the Xpressbet Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) to Promises Fulfilled . He would go on to place second in two more graded stakes with both Hennig and trainer Steve Asmussen, the True North Stakes (G2) and Maryland Sprint Match Series Stakes (G3), respectively. Strike Power retired with a 4-4-1 record from 20 starts and earned $497,935.
