Treasure Beach Shuttling To Argentina For 2020 Southern Hemisphere Season

Treasure Beach, a winner at the highest level in the U.S. and Ireland, will shuttle to Haras Abolengo in Argentina for the 2020 Southern Hemisphere breeding season, according to South American publication Turf Diario.

The 12-year-old son of Galileo stands the Northern Hemisphere season at Pleasant Acres Farm in Morriston, Fla., where he is advertised for a fee of $7,500.

The trip will mark a return to Haras Abolengo for Treasure Beach, who stood four Southern Hemisphere seasons there earlier in his stud career. He spent the previous Southern Hemisphere season at Haras Cardenal in Argentina.

Treasure Beach has been highly successful at stud in Argentina, siring five Group 1 winners born in that country including Argentine 2000 Guineas winner Imperador and G1 Estrellas Distaff winner La Renoleta, who has since been moved to the U.S. barn of trainer Steve Asmussen and won her American debut on Feb. 8 when she took an Oaklawn Park allowance optional claiming race by 9 3/4 lengths. His top domestic-born runners include stakes winners Decorated Ace and Saratoga Treasure.

Over four seasons of racing, Treasure Beach won five of 22 starts for earnings of $2,435,343. He began his on-track career in Europe, winning an Irish stakes race and finishing in the G2 Royal Lodge Stakes during the Royal Ascot meet. At three, he won the G1 Irish Derby, the G3 Chester Vase Stakes in England, and the G1 Secretariat Stakes at Arlington Park, while also notching in-the-money efforts in the G1 Epsom Derby and G1 Canadian International.

Treasure Beach is out of the winning Mark of Esteem mare Honorine, whose foals also include Group 2-placed stakes winner Elidor, stakes winner Honor Bound, and Group 2-placed Count Octave. His extended family includes Group 2 winner Indian Creek.
