Spendthrift Farm announced the addition of five stallions to its roster at the farm’s annual breeders’ event Thursday evening. Having previously revealed the acquisition of MGISW Mitole (Eskendereya) and GISW Omaha Beach (War Front)’s breeding rights, Spendthrift has also brought on board GISW Vino Rosso (Curlin), MGSW Coal Front (Stay Thirsty) and GSW Maximus Mischief (Into Mischief) for 2020.
“There is obviously a tremendous amount of history here at Spendthrift, and it’s long been a goal of Mr. Hughes to return this great farm to its better days as a premier stallion operation. We believe we are doing that,” said Ned Toffey, Spendthrift general manager. “Currently, we are the only North American farm standing three stallions that have multiple Grade 1 winners in 2019, with Malibu Moon, Temple City and, of course, Into Mischief who’s the number one General Sire in the land. The addition of these five new horses will greatly complement our stallion roster and is representative of our commitment. It is the finest group we’ve had the privilege to bring in, and the best this storied farm has seen in decades. There is quality and diversity for every breeder. We’re extremely excited about all five horses and the future of Spendthrift.”
