Snapper Sinclair (City Zip–True Addiction, by Yes It's True) will retire to stud at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds for the 2023 breeding season. He will stand for $5,000 live foal, stands and nurses.

Raced by Jeff Bloom's Bloom Racing Stable and trained by Steve Asmussen, the popular bay was known for his durability, posting a career record of 39-7-9-4 and earnings of over $1.8 million. The three-time stakes winner on grass was also second in the 2020 GI Cigar Mile H.

The $30,000 KEESEP yearling and $180,000 OBS April 2-year-old was bred in Kentucky by K & G Stables.

“I love this horse because he showed up every time, whether dirt or turf, sprinting or two turns,” Bloom said. “He raced in the toughest company throughout his career and always tried.”

Asmussen had equal praise.

“What a cool horse, he's so versatile–could run on any surface and would run against anyone,” Asmussen said. “I love him and believe he deserves a chance at stud.”

John McMahon added that, “his combination of race record, pedigree and high regard for connections of Jeff Bloom and Steve Asmussen convinced us. You never know from where a stallion might come and his sire City Zip started in New York at $7,500 before he moved to Lane's End and became a leading sire. You think about iconic stallions like Storm Cat, Tapit, War Front and Into Mischief and they all stood for $10,000 at one time, and we believe Snapper Sinclair has enough of the right ingredients to become a successful stallion.”
