David Tillson and partners acquired the multiple Graded stakes winner from Lane’s End Farm. “UNIFIED has settled in well, he is in wonderful shape and is acclimating to his new home,” Tillson reported. UNIFIED will be the only son of Candy Ride standing in Louisiana.
UNIFIED is one of three sons of Candy Ride ranked among the top eight Third Crop Sires, #1 Gun Runner #6 UNIFIED and #8 Mastery. In this year’s Kentucky Derby there were two sons of Candy Ride and one son of Gun Runner. This is a very successful line that is a much-needed influence in Louisiana and the Southwest.
UNIFIED is the sire of 3-year-old filly UNIFIED ALLIANCE, an easy winner of Saratoga’s 5 ½ furlong Coronation Cup Stakes run yesterday over the main track. Tillson added, “this really is a great start for UNFIED, an exceptional racehorse and sire.”
UNIFIED is a handsome horse with a powerful sprinter’s physique. He broke his maiden at first asking in 1:08.4, earning a 102 Equibase figure. Stakes Winner of the Gulfstream Park Sprint Stakes (G3) with a 118 Equibase. Additionally, UNIFIED won the G2 Peter Pan Stakes and G3 Bay Shore S., both in New York. Second by a neck in the G1 Carter Handicap, UNIFIED retired with nearly half-million dollars in earnings.
UNIFIED will join leading general sire in Louisiana, Carpe Diem and first crop yearling sire Bobby’s Wicked One for the 2024 breeding season.
“The predominant goal of this stallion station is to offer speed-oriented sons of prominent sires who are of the conformational type that compliment mares of the Southwestern region,” concluded Tillson.
UNIFIED will be owned by Unified Stud, LLC and units (shares) will be available for purchase. He will stand for $3,500 live foal.
