Shermanesque, a multiple graded stakes-placed son of Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Fusaichi Pegasus, has been relocated to Texas to stand at Broughton Farm in Midland as property of Misti Broughton. He will stand for an introductory fee of $750.
A $350,000 Keeneland yearling purchase, Shermanesque broke his maiden at Churchill Downs at first asking as a 2-year-old and then posted three consecutive placings against graded stakes company in the Bashford Manor Stakes (G3) at Churchill, the Saratoga Special Breeders’ Cup Stakes (G2) in New York and the Kentucky Cup Juvenile Stakes (G3) at Turfway Park. He retired from racing after five starts with a bankroll of $104,516 and a record of 5-1-2-1.
Shermanesque is out of the stakes-winning T.V. Commercial mare T.V. Countess, and he is a half brother to champion 2-year-old filly and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) winner Countess Diana.
Shermanesque’s leading runner is 11-time winner Lemon Sherbert, a stakes-placed earner of nearly $250,000. The stallion formerly stood at Whispering Oaks Farm in Louisiana.
