Mr. Besilu, the son of A.P. Indy who sold for $4.2 million as a Keeneland yearling, has been retired from racing and will stand the 2015 breeding season at Mike Grossman’s Eureka Thoroughbred Farm in Fredericksburg, Texas. He will stand for a fee of $2,000.
Mr. Besilu made headlines in 2010 when he sold for the highest price of any North American yearling since 2006 and the highest ever for an offspring of leading stallion A.P. Indy.
Mr. Besilu’s dam is three-time Grade 1 winner Balance, a millionaire by Thunder Gulch. Balance is also a half sister to three-time Eclipse Champion Older Mare and 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta.
In a career limited by injury, Mr. Besilu hit the board twice before being retired.
Eureka Thoroughbred Farm also stands new Texas stallions The Hunk and Expect a Lot. For more information, go to www.eurekathoroughbreds.com or call (830) 688-1709.
