Grade 2 Winner Lucullan Retired To Stand In Argentina

Lucullan, a Grade 2-winning son of Hard Spun, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Haras La Leyenda in Argentina, according to the South American publication Turf Diario.

The 6-year-old homebred for the Godolphin operation was purchased by a partnership of Argentine and Brazilian horsemen following an on-track career that featured six wins in 14 starts for earnings of $510,925 under trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.

A turf specialist, Lucullan earned his signature victory in the Grade 2 Knickerbocker Stakes at Belmont Park last October. He also won the listed Lure Stakes earlier that summer in Saratoga, and he earned in-the-money placings in the G3 Hill Prince Stakes and Fort Marcy Stakes.

Lucullan is out of the Seeking the Gold mare Golden Velvet, who is a multiple Grade 3 winner in the U.S. and stakes-placed in France. He is a half-brother to Grade 3 winner Innovative Idea.

His second dam, the multiple Grade 3 winner Caress, is also the dam of Grade 1 winner and notable sire Sky Mesa, and the extended family includes Group 3 winner and sire Bernstein.
