In The Stud Presented By Kentucky Equine Research: Collected, First Crop Weanlings Of 2020

Collected did an admirable job preserving the memory of his late sire City Zip on the racetrack, and he’ll aim to continue that pattern as he sets course on his stallion career at Airdrie Stud.

In the 2020 season premiere of the In The Stud video series, Airdrie Stud’s Cormac Breathnach discusses what makes the 7-year-old Collected an attractive prospect for breeders, prior to the stallion’s first weanlings going through the ring at this year’s fall mixed sales.

Collected started his career on the turf, and he ran second in the Grade 3 Cecil B. DeMille Stakes as a juvenile. The colt was then moved to the dirt at three, where he found his true footing with victories in the G3 Lexington Stakes and Sham Stakes.

At four, Collected became one of the top older males in his division, racking up wins in the G1 Pacific Classic, G2 Californian Stakes, and G3 Precisionist Stakes. He also finished second in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Del Mar. In total, Collected retired with eight wins in 15 starts for earnings of $2,975,500.

The In The Stud series, put together by our friends at EquiSport Photos, features up-and-coming names in the stallion ranks, with a focus on those whose first foals are weanlings of 2020. Paulick Report bloodstock editor Joe Nevills interviews farm staff about the stallion’s appealing qualities and what mares might work best with him, while giving viewers and potential breeders a chance to see the stallion on the walk and on the racetrack.
