Dialed In to Stand at Darby Dan Farm

Dialed In, last year's Florida Derby (gr. I) winner and Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) favorite, has been retired from racing and will stand the 2013 breeding season at John Phillips' Darby Dan Farm near Lexington. A stud fee has not yet been set.

"This horse will be as bittersweet of a story for me as I'll ever have," said trainer Nick Zito. "He showed how brilliantly gifted he was breaking his maiden at Churchill first time out, and then winning the Holy Bull (Stakes, gr. III) like he did in his second start, before, of course, winning the Florida Derby. I know the phrase gets overused in this game, but Dialed In was truly one of the best—if not the best—I ever trained. He was up there with  Bellamy Road, Commentator, War Pass, all of them."

Bred in Kentucky by W.S. Farish, Madeleine Pickens, and Skara Glen Stables, Dialed In is by Mineshaft out of the multiple stakes-producing Storm Cat mare Miss Doolittle, who is a daughter of champion Eliza. He was bought by Robert LePenta's Whitehorse Stable for $475,000 at the 2009 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga yearling sale.
