Bravazo Joins Stallion Ranks at Calumet


Bravazo | Sarah Andrew

Bravazo (Awesome Again–Tiz o' Gold, by Cee's Tizzy), who bankrolled over $2 million over the course of four seasons at the track, will enter stud in 2021 at his owner's Calumet Farm. He will stand for $6,000.

Trained by D. Wayne Lukas, Bravazo was second in the GI Claiborne Breeders' Futurity at two and earned his way onto the Triple Crown trail with an upset victory in the GII Risen Star S. in 2018. He would go on to finish second, beaten a half-length by eventual Triple Crown hero Justify (Scat Daddy) in the GI Preakness S., and hit the board in the GI Haskell Invitational S., GI Runhappy Travers S., GI Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile and GI Clark S.

“Bravazo was an iron horse on the track,” said Calumet's Eddie Kane. “He was a fierce competitor with great resolve and determination. I'm confident he will establish this toughness in his progeny.”

The Calumet roster is topped by English Channel (Smart Strike), the number one turf sire by earnings with eighth individual black-type winners, five of those graded, including GISW and Eclipse Award candidate Channel Maker. English Channel stands for $27,500 in 2021.
