Grade 1 Winner Echo Town Retired To Ashford Stud

Grade 1 H. Allen Jerkens Stakes winner Echo Town has been retired from racing and will stand at a fee of $10,000.

“We are delighted that Echo Town will be coming to Ashford,” said Ashford’s director of sales Charlie O’Connor. “He’s a very good-looking horse and Speightstown is making an impression as a sire of sires. As one of the best sprinters of his generation we think Echo Town offers a similar profile to our own Munnings who continues to go from strength to strength.”

Echo Town broke his maiden at the first time of asking at Fair Grounds for Steve Asmussen earning TDN Rising Star Status in the process. Two more convincing wins followed at Oaklawn Park and Churchill Downs before he ran second to No Parole in the Woody Stephens in his first start against Grade 1 company. Next time out in the G1 H. Allen Jerkens Stakes at Saratoga, he turned the tables on his Woody Stephens rival in no uncertain fashion drawing off to a 3 1/2-length score.

“We are extremely excited for Echo Town to stand at Coolmore America,” said co-owner Michael Levinson of L&N Racing. “He has been a star on the racetrack, and we’re confident Coolmore will give him every opportunity to succeed as a stallion, we look forward to seeing his foals hit the ground in 2022.”

A son of the G2 Forward Gal Stakes winner Letgomyecho, Echo Town is a half-brother to J Boys Echo, victorious in the G3 Gotham Stakes and to Grade 3-placed juvenile Unbridled Outlaw.

Echo Town is already at Ashford and available for inspection by appointment.
