COALINGA, CA (March 4, 2015)-Clubhouse Ride (2008, Candy Ride (ARG)- Seeking Results, by Seeking The Gold) has been retired and will enter stud in 2015 at Harris Farms near Coalinga, CA. Campaigned by Six-S Racing Stable, and Bonnie and Nikolas Petralia, and trained throughout his career by Craig Lewis, the chestnut son of Candy Ride earned $1,341,132 in forty-three starts including victories in 2013 and 2014 Californian S. (G2). A graded stakes performer from ages two through five, Clubhouse Ride placed in nine additional graded stakes including the Santa Anita H. (G1), the Santa Anita Gold Cup (G1), Cash Call Futurity (G1), Charles Town Classic S. (G2), San Antonio S. (G2), and Daytona S. (G3). He ran eight triple digit Beyers numbers in 2013-14.
Clubhouse Ride co-owner Rick Seidner commented, “He was a great horse with a huge heart that ran on all surfaces. I was thrilled to witness every race. We’re looking forward to his second career”. Trainer Craig Lewis said, “Clubhouse Ride was a top athlete, with a great mind. He was all racehorse”.
John Harris of Harris Farms commented, “I thought Candy Ride was one of the best racehorses I ever saw run. He was unbeaten and his win in the Pacific Classic in track record time was absolutely stunning. I thought he would be a top stallion and he sure has proved to be one of the best, with his son Shared Belief clearly one of the top horses in the country and the highly likely favorite in the Santa Anita Handicap on March 7th. I think Candy Ride will also be a top sire of sires, and we’re delighted to get one of his best sons to California, Clubhouse Ride. He is a good looking, smart horse, with much presence. I plan to breed some of my best mares to him. He is a terrific value at his introductory stud fee”.
Clubhouse Ride will stand for an introductory fee of $2,500 live foal, payable at foaling. Inquiries should be directed to Dave McGlothlin or Debbie Winick at Harris Farms at 1-800-311-6211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
