COALINGA, Calif. (Nov. 7, 2016) – Jeranimo, a 10-year-old son of Congaree, out of Jera, by Jeblar, will stand the 2017 breeding season at John Harris’ Harris Farms in Coalinga.
Jeranimo was campaigned by Robert LaPenta and B.J. Wright and trained by Michael Pender. Jeranimo won the Shoemaker Mile Stakes (Gr. IT), Eddie Read Stakes (Gr. IT) and the San Gabriel Stakes (Gr. IIT) a record three times. His lifetime record is 11 wins, including eight stakes, six times second (three stakes) and five times third (four stakes) with earnings of $1,525,364.
John Harris commented, “I am delighted to add this nice stallion to our stallion roster. He combines several attributes that I admire – won both short and long on both synthetic and turf, very durable, has a pedigree that has many great horses, won several graded stakes and had miler form. Plus he is good looking and has a nice disposition.” Mike Pender, who trained Jeranimo, stated: “He was bold and the alpha male of the shed row, with no breaks in training during his six-year career. He was the smartest, most intelligent horse I’ve ever had on my shed row.”
Wade Jacobsen of the Jeranimo Partnership commented, “Jeranimo retired sound and is a throwback to sturdy horses of years ago. He was electrifyingly fast and his soundness, versatility and longevity are great assets to any breeding program. We are pleased to stand Jeranimo at Harris Farms, California’s premier breeding facility.”
