El Padrino

A lot of flash, a ton of talent, from a superb family, EL PADRINO has been the most sought after stallion in the Mid-Atlantic region, covering nearly 300 mares his first three seasons!

His talent was on display when he won the Gr. 2 Risen Star S. at 3 in near record time of 1:42.96 for 11⁄16 miles and a Gulfstream Park allowance in 1:42.68 for 11⁄16 miles. His first win came over a sloppy Belmont track by 123⁄4 lengths at 2, and followed with a solid third in the Gr. 2 Remsen S., beaten less than a length. On the board in six of eight starts, he earned $326,770.

His half-brother, Verrazano, ranked as the highweighted older horse in Ireland at 4, earned $1,878,013 with six wins in 13 starts, including the Gr. 1 Haskell Invitational S. From the hottest sire line in the world, his second dam, Gr. 1 Chic Shirine, is a full sister to champion Queena; third dam is Gr. 1 Too Chic. The prolific family includes additional Gr. 1 winners KEEN ICE, SOMALI LEMONADE, Brahms, HARMONIZE, Serra Lake, etc.

His first runners get to the races in 2017.
