Per Capita (Tapit–Successful Outlook, by Orientate), a full-brother to the GSW & GISP pair of Anchor Down and Iron Fist, has been retired and will stand at Fleming Thoroughbred Farm near Willcox, Arizona. Last trained by Todd Pletcher while campaigning for the partnership of Red Oak Stable, Peter Brant, and Gainesway Stable, Per Capita was offered at the recent Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale as a racing or stallion prospect. Alvarez Racing purchased the chestnut for $60,000 and retired him to stand at Fleming. Per Capita goes to the breeding shed with a record of 8-2-2-2 and earnings of $134,140.
“We are excited to offer a horse from one of the strongest Gainesway families to breeders in Arizona,” said Dylon Alvarez. “We will strongly support Per Capita with our broodmare band and plan to privately acquire a few more mares specifically to complement his pedigree.”
In addition to his graded-winning full-brothers, Per Capita also is a half-brother to 2013 GI Test S. winner Sweet Lulu (Mr. Greeley). He will be the first son of leading sire Tapit to stand in Arizona. His 2022 fee will be $2,000, S&N.
