Sum Of The Parts Shuttling To Brazil

Grade 3 winner Sum of the Parts will shuttle to stand the Southern Hemisphere breeding season at Haras Santa Tereza do Bom Retiro in Brazil, the South American publication Turf Diario reports.

The 9-year-old son of Speightstown stands the Northern Hemisphere season at Red River Farms in Louisiana, where he was advertised during the most recent breeding season for $2,000. He retired to Red River Farms in 2015, and his first foals are two-year-olds of 2018.

“My veterinarian is from Brazil and she knew the farm down there, they just connected, and it fell in my lap, basically,” said Red River’s Jay Adcock. “I’ve never shuttled one of my horses before, but this is a nice horse. I hope he does good down there. He’s got a good crop coming up and I hope he’ll do good in both places.”

Sum of the Parts won nine of 26 starts during his on-track career, highlighted by back-to-back editions of the Grade 3 Phoenix Stakes at Keeneland. He also won a quartet of non-graded stakes to bring his lifetime earnings to $876,189.

The horse raced the bulk of his career for Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence, before running in his final start for End Zone Athletics.

Bred in Kentucky by Farfellow Farms, Sum of the Parts is out of the Grade 2-winning Slew’s Royalty mare Enjoy the Moment, and he is a half-brother to Grade 3-winner Rocket Heat.
