Near millionaire and MGSW Core Beliefs (Quality Road–Tejati, by Tactical Advantage) will be the first stallion to stand at historic Walmac Farm since Gary Broad purchased the property in 2018, it was announced Friday. The soon-to-be 7-year-olld will stand the 2022 breeding season for $7,500 LFSN, and breeders will have the option to secure a lifetime breeding right (one and done) for $10,000.
A $350,000 Barretts March juvenile buy, Core Beliefs was third in the GI Santa Anita Derby at three before taking the GIII Ohio Derby later that year. He added the GII New Orleans H. in 2019 and racked up $953,988 in career earnings from a record of 18-3-2-5. By top sire Quality Road, he is a half to the stakes-placed juvenile Downtown Driggs (Dr. Caton) and hails from the female family of GISW See How She Runs (Maria's Mon) and Canadian champion grass horse Hasten to Add (Cozzene).
“We're excited about resurrecting historic Walmac Farm,” said Broad. “We have been working hard the last two years making improvements to Walmac, and the timing is perfect to launch the stallion operation with Core Beliefs, a horse that we really believe in. He is a multiple graded stakes winner by Quality Road and he has all the necessary ingredients to be a successful stallion. We're looking forward to introducing him to breeders for the upcoming breeding season. I can't wait for breeders to come out and see him. I think they will really like his physical.”
