Dominus Moves To Ohio’s Mapleton Thoroughbred Farm For 2022

Dominus, a multiple Grade 2 winner and veteran sire, will relocate to Mapleton Thoroughbred Farm in Polk, Ohio for the 2022 breeding season.

The 13-year-old son of Smart Strike previously stood at Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, Ky., where he entered stud in 2013. He stood the 2021 season for an advertised fee of $5,000.

Dominus has sired six crops of racing age, with 112 winners and combined progeny earnings of more than $7.3 million.

His most notable runner to date has been Straight Fire, a fast-starting juvenile who finished second in the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity and third in the G1 FrontRunner Stakes. Straight Fire currently stands at stud in California.

Other runners of note by Dominus include Grade 2-placed Dominant Soul and Parsimony, and Grade 3-placed multiple stakes winner Chanel’s Legacy.

Dominus won four of 10 starts during his own racing career, for earnings of $444,717. He won the G2 Dwyer Stakes as a 3-year-old, then he came back the following season to win the G2 Bernard Baruch Handicap.

Bred in Virginia by Edward P. Evans, Dominus is out of the Grade 2-placed stakes-winning Lord At War mare Cuando. He is a half-brother to the multiple graded stakes producer Ask Me When, who is herself the dam of Grade 3-placed stakes winners Aristocratic and Up the Ante.

His extended family includes Kentucky Oaks winner Sun and Snow, Grade 1 winner Honey Ryder, and Grade 3 winners Cuando Puede and Hit It Rich.
