Tu Brutus to Crestwood


Tu Brutus | Viola Jasko

Tu Brutus (Chi) (Scat Daddy–Bresca {Chi}, by Seeker’s Reward) will enter stud at Pope McLean’s Crestwood Farm in Kentucky for the 2018 breeding season. He is expected to be the only son of the late Scat Daddy to stand in Kentucky this year. A Group 3 winner and Group 1-placed in his native country, Tu Brutus earned a gaudy 118 Beyer Speed Figure in his first U.S. start for trainer Gary Contessa in April’s GIII Excelsior S. He took the Flat Out S. by 11 lengths at Belmont next out, and was third in the GII Brooklyn S. over 1 1/2 miles. “Scat Daddy has been an undeniable global force, and unfortunately was lost too soon,” Pope McLean said. “We have been looking to stand a son of his and to tap into the precocity that he passes on. Tu Brutus was a star in the making and his 118 Beyer validated that he was a Grade I talent on dirt. He has the type of physical and conformation that everyone wants, and we believe breeders will like what they see.” Tu Brutus will stand as property of a partnership for a fee of $5,000, stands and nurses. He will available for inspection during Crestwood’s Open House to be held Sunday, Jan. 7 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
