Leading Florida sire Gone Astray (Dixie Union–Illicit, by Mr. Prospector) has moved to Pleasant Acres Stallions for the 2022 breeding season and will stand for a fee of $2,500, Pleasant Acres announced Tuesday. The dark bay previously stood at Northwest Stud in Ocala.

A three-time graded stakes winner in his career with victories in the GII Pennsylvania Derby and GII Ohio Derby as a sophomore, Gone Astray entered stud in 2012 and has accumulated over $12 million in progeny earnings. He has so far been represented by 175 total winners, 10 black-type winners, 19 black-type performers and a pair of graded stakes winners.

“Gone Astray has been a complete success since he entered into stud in 2012. We are excited to bring him to Pleasant Acres Stallions, where he can continue to produce graded stakes and black type winners for our Florida breeders,” said Joe Barbazon. “Gone Astray isn't a gamble for breeders. He is currently #10 on the Lifetime Sires by Progeny Earnings list behind some stallions who began their careers decades ago.”
