Leofric Relocates to Darby Dan


Leofric | Coady

Grade I winner Leofric (Candy Ride {Arg}–Lady Godiva, by Unbridled's Song), who had been standing at Rockridge Stud in New York, will relocate to Darby Dan Farm in Kentucky for the 2022 breeding season. The 8-year-old stallion will stand for $7,500 S&N.

“There's a lot to like about Leofric. He has a stallion's pedigree, and his first foals are outstanding,” said Ryan Norton, stallion director at Darby Dan Farm. “Being a Grade I winner by Candy Ride, it makes a lot of sense to bring him to Kentucky now to give him every opportunity to succeed as a stallion and carry on his sire's legacy. We are excited to share him with breeders.”

Leofric won the 2018 GI Clark H., GII Hagyard Fayette S., and GIII West Virginia Governor's S. He was third in that year's GI Woodward S. On the board in 12 of 14 starts, he won eight times and earned $951,040 for owner Steve Landers Racing and trainer Brad Cox.

Leofric retired to stud in 2020 and was represented by his first foals this year. He will stand at Darby Dan as the property of a syndicate.
