Shackleford (Forestry–Oatsee, by Unbridled), the 2011 GI Preakness S. winner, has been sold to continue his stud career in Korea, officials at Darby Dan Farm confirmed Thursday afternoon.

Bred and raced by Mike Lauffer and Bill Cubbedge and trained by Dale Romans, the blaze-faced chestnut defied big odds to finish second in the GI Florida Derby and set the majority of the pace in the GI Kentucky Derby before settling for a close fourth-place effort. He defeated Derby winner Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux {Brz}) two weeks later and would go on to win the GI Met Mile H., the GI Clark H. and the GII Churchill Downs S. at four. He was retired to Darby Dan with a record of 20-6-5-1 and earnings of $3,090,101.

The sire of 213 winners from 319 to race (66.8%), Shackleford has thus far accounted for a dozen black-type winners, six at the graded level, including the Romans-trained GI H. Allen Jerkens winner Promises Fulfilled and Grade II winner Malagacy.

Shackleford has been represented by seven winners from 11 runners in Korea, including near $300,000 earner Cheongdam Jewang.
