G2 winner Excaper retired to stand at River Oaks Farms
Excaper retires as the winner of five races and $775,360.
A high-class two-year-old, Excaper broke his maiden first time out at Woodbine and signed off his juvenile campaign by running second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) at Churchill Downs.
Subsequently a tough and consistent performer, he later captured the Connaught Cup (G2) at Woodbine and ran placed in the Play The King Stakes (G2), King Edward Stakes (G2) and Kent Stakes (G3).
In all, he won or was placed in 15 stakes races.
“Excaper is a horse that offers world class two-year-old form,” said Chad Schumer. “He is also by a leading two-year-old known for siring fast and early types, so a perfect horse for the Oklahoma market.”
A son of Exchange Rate, Excaper is a half-brother to six winners including Listed scorer Quiet A Ruckus. His winning dam Ada Ruckus, by Bold Ruckus, is a half-sister to successful Canadian sire Tethra.
Excaper will stand alongside Chitoz, Foreign Policy, Latent Heat and Read The Footnotes at River Oaks Farms.
