Darby Dan Farm's first-year sire Modernist (Uncle Mo) will stand the Southern Hemisphere season at Haras Santa Olga in Santiago, Chile. He bred 141 mares this spring at Darby Dan while standing for an initial fee of $10,000, stands and nurses.
Hall of Famer Bill Mott conditioned Modernist for Martin and Pam Wygod, who campaigned him as a homebred. His wins included the GII Risen Star S. at Fair Grounds and Aqueduct's GIII Excelsior S., while also placing in another three graded events. His unraced dam is a half-sister to Breeders' Cup winners Sweet Catomine (Storm Cat), also a champion, and Life is Sweet (Storm Cat).
The deal was brokered by Matt Bowling of Bowling Bloodstock.
