Stanford, the multiple graded stakes winning son of Malibu Moon, entered stud in 2018 and was an immediate success. Leading the sire charts in California as a freshman and finishing second on the sire of Two-year-olds list that same season, has sired 5 black-type horses, including multiple stakes winner, Opening Buzz, and 61 individual winners from his first two crops to race.

Stanford stands as the property of Tommy Town Thoroughbreds. His 2024 stud fee is $5,000, Live Foal.

At 2, he won his racing debut by 6 1/4 lengths at Del Mar with trainer Bob Baffert and went on to win the American Pharaoh Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita Park by six.

Out of Pure Prize graded stakes winner Purely Hot, Eight Rings is bred on the same Empire Maker/Storm Cat cross as Triple Crown winner American Pharaoh and Eclipse champion Classic Empire.

Ministers Wild Cat and Kafwain Retired to Tennessee Farm

Courtesy of DRF.com The former Tommy Town Thoroughbreds’ stallions Kafwain and Ministers Wild Cat were shipped last week to a retirement farm near Nashville, Tenn.

Kafwain and Ministers Wild Cat will be residents at the 70-acre Premier Equine Rehab, which is operated by Jenny Earhart who has a lifelong involvement in racing and retirement farms for racehorses.

“They’ll get adjusted to the lifestyle,” Earhart said in a recent interview.

Earhart also operates a facility in California.

Ministers Wild Cat ranked among the state’s top 10 stallions in progeny earnings frequently in the 2010s and as recently as 2021. He was pensioned in 2022. Kafwain’s progeny included the millionaire Daisy Devine and the Grade 1 stakes winner Let Faith Arise. He stood the 2023 season and is now also pension.

In Tennessee, Kafwain and Minister Wild Cat will join a group of retired runners that includes former Californians Basmati, Chief Lion, Royal F J, and the eight-time stakes winner Stallwalkin’ Dude.

The Tennessee facility recently accepted a group of local horses found on a nearby farm that were suffering from neglect, Earhart wrote in a Facebook post.
