Ransom the Moon (Malibu Moon-Count to Three, by Red Ransom), a two-time winner of Del Mar’s GI Bing Crosby S., will stand his first season at stud at Calumet Farm for $7,500 LFSN in 2019.
“He is beautiful, and if he replicates himself, we are set,” Calumet Farm’s Jak Knelman said. “He is about 16.2 [hands] and has a beautiful neck and topline with a strong hip and hind leg. Looking at his profile, he looks like a Classic, distance horse, but he has the speed to win at six furlongs.”
Ransom the Moon joins the Calumet roster headlined by perennial leading sire English Channel, who will command a $30,000 fee in 2019.
Calumet’s 2019 roster is rounded out by: Keen Ice ($20,000), Oxbow ($15,000), Bal a Bali (Brz) ($15,000), Big Blue Kitten ($10,000), Aikenite ($5,000), Mr. Z ($5,000), Optimizer ($5,000), Raison d’Etat ($5,000), Slumber (GB) ($5,000), War Correspondent ($5,000).
