Discreetly Mine sold to stand in Uruguay
Discreetly Mine, sire of last year’s Juvenile Dirt Sprint Stakes winner Sheikh Of Sheikhs, has been sold to stand at Norman Fox’s Haras Lascala in Uruguay. The deal was brokered by Chad Schumer of Schumer Bloodstock in association with Diego Mitagstein of Perhaps Bloodstock and Pablo Núñez.
The winner of five of 13 starts and approximately $800,000 in earnings, the son of Mineshaft capped his career for Todd Pletcher with a victory in the King’s Bishop Stakes (G1) at Saratoga. He was also successful in the Amsterdam Stakes (G2), Risen Star Stakes (G2) and Jersey Shore Stakes (G3), and second in the Champagne Stakes (G1).
Discreetly Mine is the sire of six black-type performers from three crops of racing age sired from his time at Lane’s End Farm in Kentucky. In addition to Sheikh Of Sheikhs, his progeny include multiple stakes winner Control Stake and the G3-placed Classy Class.
“We’re pleased to acquire such a high class racehorse and half-brother brother to successful Kentucky sire Discreet Cat for Mr Fox’s farm,” said Chad Schumer. “What a wonderful option for Uruguayan breeders.”
Discreetly Mine was bred by E Paul Robsham out of the 1995 Alabama Stakes (G1) heroine Pretty Discreet and is a half-brother to G1 winner Discreet Cat and the G1-placed Pretty Wild.
