Warrant (Constitution–Whisper Number, by First Samurai), winner of the 2021 GIII Oklahoma Derby and narrowly defeated into second in the GI Santa Anita H. the following spring, has been retired from racing and will enter stud in 2024 at Blackstone Farm in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania. He will begin his stud career at a fee of $4,000 S&N terms.
A homebred for Twin Creeks Farm and trained by Brad Cox, Warrant won the 2021 Texas Derby and was runner-up in the GIII West Virginia Derby before winning the Remington feature by 1 3/4 lengths. A head second behind Express Train (Union Rags) at less than 4-1 in the 2022 Big 'Cap, Warrant added this year's Isaac Murphy Marathon S. over 12 furlongs and retires with five wins from 19 starts for earnings of $1,102,833.
“Warrant being a Grade III winner and Grade I-placed millionaire by emerging elite sire Constitution, we are very excited and can't wait to introduce him to Pennsylvania breeders,” said Christian Black. “We will be supporting him heavily with our own mares.”
Added Twin Creeks' Randy Gullatt: “From day one, Warrant has been our favorite Constitution that we have. We have a ton of confidence in what Warrant can do as a stallion and look forward to supporting him.”
