Brittany Stallion Management has announced that Four Starzzz Shark will shuttle to the Southern Hemisphere and stand at Empire Stallions in Victoria, Australia, this coming season.
Empire Stallions is owned and operated by David James and Donna Egan of David James Bloodstock Ltd., Circleville, New York, making it the only US-owned and managed breeding operation in the Southern Hemisphere.
Four Starzzz Shark is a world champion son of Cam’s Card Shark with multiple stakes victories to his credit including the Cane Pace and Historic Jersey Cup at 3. In 2004, he captured the William Haughton, the Molson Pace and the Graduate Final and was voted the Aged Pacer of the Year. He also recorded the fastest mile of that year when pacing in 1:47.4 and scored nine victories in 1:50 or faster during his 25 win career. H was retired with career earnings of $2,537,267.
From a test crop of two foals now 3-year-olds, Four Starzzz Shark has produced Four Starz Horndog p,3,1:52f, the winner of the 2008 Helen Dancer at Freehold in 1:55.2h. His only other offspring from that crop is Four Starz Affair p,3,1:57f-‘08, a late-closer winner who has been stakes-placed in a Grand Circuit event.
Four Starzzz Shark’s first full crop of 2-year-olds is just now starting to baby race.
Four Starzzz Shark’s Southern Hemisphere stud fee for the upcoming season will be announced at a later date. (Brittany Stallion Management)
