Third-crop sire Gem Heist (Street Cry {Ire}–Careless Jewel, by Tapit) has been relocated to stand at Rancho San Miguel in San Miguel, California for the 2022 breeding season. His fee is $2,500, live foal guarantee.

The 10-year-old stallion previously stood at a private farm in Bakersfield, California as the property of the late horseman Bob Grayson, Sr. Grayson purchased Gem Heist for $100,000 from Eddie Woods' consignment at the 2014 Barretts March Sale of Selected 2-Year-Olds in Training.

Gem Heist experienced a career-ending injury while preparing for his debut, and was subsequently retired to stand stud. To date, he is credited with 29 reported foals, including eight juveniles and three yearlings of 2022. From his five lifetime starters, three are winners, led by multiple winner Saturday Heist.

“We are pleased to welcome a stallion with such top-class bloodlines to Rancho San Miguel,” said farm owner / manager Tom Clark. “Gem Heist has exhibited true potential with his early starters, and he is improving his mares. We look forward to helping him reach the next level in his stallion career.”
