Wow! When Was the Last Time a Calumet Farm Stallion Stood for Breeding in Minnesota? (Yes, that Calumet Farm!)
Eye of the Leopard is moving from Calumet Farm in Kentucky to Minnesota and standing at Rick and Joyce Osborne's Osborne Farm in Cambridge.
This young sire was a Champion 3-year-old in Canada, winner of the 2009 Sovereign Award, winner of the Queens Plate, Graded Stakes placed with career earnings of $920,517.
His dam, Eye of the Sphynx, was a Sovereign Award Champion 3-Year-Old Filly and graded stakes winner. He is by Champion Sire A.P. Indy from the prolific and powerful A.P. Indy x Mr. Prospector Cross.
It's incredible that Minnesota breeders can now have local access to this superior and champion laden bloodline.
Congratulations to Rick and Joyce. They continue to do the right things to improve breeding quality and quantity right here in Minnesota! We wish them much success and hope that Minnesota breeders support this fine addition to the Minnesota stallion roster.
