Calumet Farm’s 2021 Stallion Roster Features Newcomer Bravazo

Calumet Farm in Lexington, Ky., has released the advertised fees for its 2021 stallion roster, including newcomer Bravazo.

Bravazo, a son of leading sire Awesome Again, will stand for $6,000 LFSN with discounts given for multiple mare packages and quality mares. A homebred runner for Calumet Farm, the D. Wayne Lukas trainee was an honest racehorse who danced every dance.

Bravazo accumulated over $2 million in career earnings. At two, he was second in the Grade 1 Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity Stakes. Early in his 3-year-old season he won the G2 Risen Star Stakes, which propelled him into the Triple Crown, where he finished a close second in the Preakness Stakes, only beaten a half-length by Justify, the eventual Triple Crown Winner and Horse of the Year.

Bravazo continued his 3-year-old summer campaign with a second-place finish in the G1 Betfair.com Haskell Invitational Stakes followed by a third in the G1 Runhappy Travers Stakes. Bravazo went on to run for a third place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile and a second in the G1 Clark Handicap.

“Bravazo was an iron horse on the track,” said Calumet Farm’s Eddie Kane. “He was a fierce competitor with great resolve and determination. I’m confident he will establish this toughness in his progeny.”

Bravazo joins the Calumet roster headlined by perennial leading turf sire English Channel, a six time Grade 1 winner and Breeders’ Cup Turf champion.

English Channel continues to experience great success as a sire with proven runners on both the turf and dirt. In 2020, English Channel is the #1 turf sire by earnings with eight individual black type winners, five graded stakes winners and one Grade 1 winner in Channel Maker.

Ransom the Moon, the only Grade 1-winning sprinting son of Malibu Moon to go to stud, offers breeders with a dirt-speed option on an incredible sire line and is off to a strong stud career having covered 162 mares in his first two years at stud.

After breeding 298 and 221 mares through their first three years at stud respectively, G1 Travers Stakes winner Keen Ice (Curlin) and Brazilian Triple Crown winner Bal a Bali (Put It Back) will have first-crop 2-year-olds in 2021.

Oxbow continues to show great potential, with his biggest and best crops yet to come. He has bred bigger and better crops each year at stud, with next year’s 3-year-old crop coming from 153 bred and his following crop coming from 187 bred. Hot Rod Charlie, a 2-year-old son of Oxbow, most recently finished second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.

“Our roster features a wide variety of bloodlines possessing soundness, quality conformation, and a propensity to winning classic two-turn races on both dirt and turf,” said Calumet’s Bryna Reeves. “We are focused not only on building long-term relationships with breeders but also sharing in the commercial and racing success of our stallions. I am certain we will have something to fit the needs of almost any breeder.”
