Redesdale to stand at McMahon Of Saratoga Thoroughbreds
Close relation to Danehill was the dominating winner of his first three starts
We are delighted to announce that REDESDALE (Speightstown – Harpia by Danzig) will stand the 2020 season at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in New York.
Campaigned by Chad Schumer and trainer Brendan Walsh, Redesdale was the dominating winner of his first three starts over 6f. He was the sharp winner of a Churchill Downs maiden special weight on his career debut and later captured a pair of Fair Ground allowance races – on the second occasion he scored by four lengths for a 95 Beyer. He met defeat just once when injured in the G3 Commonwealth Stakes at Keeneland.
Making Redesdale a particularly exciting young prospect is the fact that he is a member of arguably the most powerful stallion family in the world and from one of the greatest sire lines in the world.
By Speightstown, he is out of G3 winner Harpia, a Danzig sister to the outstanding stallion DANEHILL. Danehill sired 347 stakes winners during his illustrious stud career and is widely regarded as one of the greatest influences in the Stud Book.
Not only that, Harpia is a great-granddaughter of Natalma, dam of the ultimate breed shaper Northern Dancer.
This is the same family as hugely influential sires Halo and Machiavellian.
“Redesdale showed exceptional talent to go undefeated through his first three starts. He is by Champion Sprinter and exceptional sire, Speightstown, out of a sister to Danehill, a 14 time Champion Sire who was a breed-shaping stallion on two continents, and is from the immediate family of Northern Dancer and Halo…” ALAN PORTER
‘I ask you to take a good hard look at this stunning physical young stallion and take advantage of what others might not be aware of. When the full scope of his potential is seen in his runners, there will be no second chance’ – LOUIS SALERNO
