HENNY HUGHES SOLD TO JAPAN: Henny Hughes
(Hennessy–Meadow Flyer, but Meadowlake), sire of last year’s Champion 2-Year-Old Filly and current GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff contender Beholder, has been sold to Yushun Company in Hokkaido, Japan. The 10-year-old, who is currently serving the Southern Hemisphere season at Rangeview in Western Australia, will take up stud duty in Japan in 2014. Henny Hughes stood the 2013 Northern Hemisphere season at Walmac Farm in Kentucky. Winner of the 2006 GI King’s Bishop and GI Vosburgh H. for Zabeel Racing under the care of Kiaran McLaughlin, Henny Hughes entered stud at Darley’s Jonabell Farm in Lexington in 2007, and shuttled between that operation and Darley’s Kelvinside Farm in Australia until his sale to Rangeview in 2012. Later that year Beholder won the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies en route to championship honors, and a deal was made to shuttle Henny Hughes to Walmac. From nine runners in Japan, Henny Hughes has sired graded winners Henny Hound and Keiai Leone (Jpn). A fee has not yet been revealed.
