Smarty Jones Returning to Pennsylvania

Champion and dual classic winner SMARTY JONES (Elusive Quality) will be relocated to Ghost Ridge Farm in Pennsylvania for the 2011 breeding season. The news was initially made public in an open letter to the fans of Smarty Jones on the website of Three Chimneys Farm, where Smarty Jones has stood since his retirement in 2004.


The letter was signed by four individuals, including Three Chimneys owner Robert Clay and his son, Case, who serves as president.


"It was a difficult decision to move the horse from Three Chimneys, especially considering his progeny's recent successes and Rogue Romance winning the Bourbon S. (G3), a 'Win and You're In” event for the Breeders' Cup (Juvenile Turf [G2])," the letter stated. "The decision ultimately came down to what was in the best interest of Smarty and his stallion career. Much of the breeding interest in Smarty Jones in recent years has come from the East Coast and, having hailed from Pennsylvania, the Chapman family is eager to bring him home. The fact that it is in Smarty Jones' best interest and is what the Chapmans want gives us confidence that we're making the right decision."

I think Smarty Jones will be more welcome in Pennsylvania, but also think Three Chimney Farms will loose visitors. I was upset at first, thinking Smarty is being moved due to not making the farm enough money, but then thought maybe he's better off in a state that loves him more.
