WinStar Farm has acquired a significant interest in leading sire Harlan's Holiday and will stand the 11-year-old son of Harlan in 2011. His fee will remain at $25,000 stands and nurses. Harlan’s Holiday formerly stood at Brereton C. Jones’ Airdrie Stud near Midway, Ky.
“Harlan’s Holiday is a stallion we’ve always thought a lot of, and we're excited about the opportunity to build on the early success he's achieved while at Airdrie,” said Elliott Walden, president of WinStar, which is owned by Kenny Troutt and located near Versailles, Ky. “He's a proven stallion that represents the quality we continue to strive for at WinStar. And to that end, Harlan's Holiday greatly compliments our growing stallion roster as well as the farm's broodmare band. For the money, we feel like Harlan's Holiday and Bluegrass Cat now give us the best 1-2 punch from the Storm Cat line.”
