Bullet Train is relocating his breeding status from Wintergreen Stallion Station in Kentucky to Crestwood Farm, Lexington, Kentucky. Six-year-old Bullet Train is a half brother to the famous champion Frankel and will begin bookings for the 2014 breeding season.
Crestwood Farm is owned by Pope McLean who is looking forward to standing the British-bred stallion. McLean said, “Bullet Train is a proud addition to the Crestwood Farm stallion roster.”
Bullet Train is by Sadler's Wells out of Kind by Danehill. This makes him a three-quarter brother to Frankel and provides Thoroughbred breeders access to a talented racehorse and a superbly bred stallion. Bullet Train’s stud fee remains the same at $7,500.
The great stallion Frankel is actually by Galileo, the son of Sadler’s Wells who is the sire of Bullet Train.
Sean Feld who is the managing director of Bullet Train is looking forward to having the stallion join the Crestwood Farm operation. He said,
The McLean's are a great family and hands-on horsemen. We are looking forward to a prosperous partnership.
