With Distinction To Stand For Hartley/De Renzo
US Gr3-winning stallion With Distinction (Storm Cat-Extravagant Woman, by Alydar) "has been purchased for stud duty at Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds in Florida beginning in 2007," reported thoroughbredtimes.com. With Distinction (a half-brother to Gr2 winner Living Vicariously) has won 6 of 29 starts for US$447,717 earnings; this season he won the Gr3 El Conejo Handicap (6 furlongs) at Santa Anita Park in January & then finished 2nd in both the Gr2 San Antonio Handicap (9 furlongs) & Gr2 Churchill Downs Handicap. Dean De Renzo commented: "The market is very tough for new sires. We are thrilled to have Florida's richest son of Storm Cat entering our breeding shed. He's got the speed & the female family to back it up."
