Florida sire Greatness (Mr. Prospector–Harbour Club, by Danzig) has returned to his roots and will stand the 2020 season at Solera Farm in Williston, west of Ocala, Fla, Dr. Krista Seltzer announced Monday. There he will join Field Commission, Florida’s eighth-leading active sire of 2019 with progeny earnings of more than $1.6 million.

“[Greatness] has a home here for life beyond his breeding career,” said Seltzer. “My dad [Edward Seltzer] bred him, raised and raced him and now he is back with us forever.”

The 21-year-old Greatness is one of the last sons of super-sire Mr. Prospector still at stud and was recently represented by Lady’s Island, 6 3/4-length winner of the GIII Sugar Swirl S. at Gulfstream Park Dec. 14, followed by a runner-up finish in the $100,000 Sunshine Millions Sprint S. Jan. 18. Now six, Lady’s Island has compiled a record of 13-4-3 in 27 starts with earnings of $404,195, and is 8-2-0 in her last 10 starts.

Greatness will stand for $2,500, stands and nurses. Call Dr. Krista Seltzer at (352) 804-0333 for more information, or email [email protected].
