Redeemed to stand at Northview Stallion Station
Redeemed, the son of Grade 1-winning millionaire Include, will enter stud at Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City for 2013. The 4-year-old, who was retired by owner Samantha Siegel's Jay Em Ess Stable in September, will stand for $3,000 S&N.; He was bred in Virginia by Wayne and Susie Taylor's Morgan Ford Farm. "Redeemed is the entire package," said Northview's bloodstock manager, Carl McEntee. "He was quick, and could carry that speed a distance while being extremely competitive against top quality fields. And he offers breeders plenty of options, being a grandson of Broad Brush out of a *Ribot-line mare from great Calumet Farm and Tartan Farm families. He has a pedigree that is free of Raise a Native and Mr. Prospector and has one distant cross of Northern Dancer."
