Snapy Halo To Stand in Virginia


Iowa Breeders' Oaks winner Snapy Gal | Coady

Former Calumet Farm stallion Snapy Halo (Arg) (Southern Halo–Ensaola {Arg}, by Ringaro) will stand the 2022 breeding season at Covilar LLC Farm, the former Owl Hollow Morgan Farm. The nursery, located on 120 acres in Floyd, Virginia, was recently purchased by Josep Bassaganya-Riera, a entrepreneur and biotech pioneer.

“I am pleased to announce that Covilar LLC initiated operations in the second half of 2021,” Bassaganya-Riera said in a release. “We are proud to build on the legacy of success of the Owl Hollow Farm. The breeding barns are fully functional and ready to accommodate any number of mares immediately.”

Winner of the G1 Estrellas Mile in Argentina and stakes-placed in Australia for trainer John O'Shea, Snapy Halo is the sire of 26 winners to date, including Konkeror K, a two-time stakes winner in Panama, and Snapy Gal, victorious in the Iowa Breeders' Oaks.

Snapy Halo will stand for $2,000.
