Climax Stallions LLC has obtained a majority interest in graded stakes winner Mr. Monomoy (Palace Malice–Drumette, by Henny Hughes) and he will stand at Dr. Jerry Bilinski's Waldorf Farm in North Chatham, NY. His initial stud fee has been announced at $5,000 Stands & Nurses.

Mr. Monomoy is a half-brother to seven-time Grade I-winning champion Monomoy Girl (Tapizar) and hails from the family of champion Heavenly Cause (Grey Dawn {Fr}).

“We bought Mr. Monomoy specifically for the New York breeding program” said Sean Feld, managing partner of Climax Stallions “It is hard to find one champion in the immediate family of a stallion let alone two and look at where the family did their winning. Heavenly Cause won the Acorn and Frizette plus his half-sister Monomoy Girl also won the Acorn before taking the Coaching Club American Oaks. Then you factor in his sire, Palace Malice's accomplishments, who won the Belmont, Jim Dandy and the Met Mile. It's a very deep and classy pedigree and we are very excited.”

Mr. Monomoy broke his maiden in his second start by 5 1/2 lengths to earn 'TDN Rising Star' honors. He closed his career with a wire-to-wire 2 1/2-length score in the GII Risen Star S.

“He was able to win going short and then win a major Kentucky Derby prep by carrying his speed around two turns at 1 1/8 miles,” said Mr. Monomoy's trainer Brad Cox. “Those are two major checkmarks that make a top sire in my opinion.”

“Mr. Monomoy, with his athleticism, brings speed, precocity and a New York pedigree to New York,” said Bilinski. “I have no doubt once breeders feast their eyes on this stallion, they will want to breed their mares to Mr. Monomoy.”
