It was announced on November 2 that Grade II-winner Cool Coal Man is moving to Ocala, Florida, where he will stand the 2014 breeding season at Journeyman Stud, owned and operated by Brent and Crystal Fernung.
The eight-year-old stallion was sired by Mineshaft and was trained by Nick Zito for Robert LaPenta. Of 30 starts, Cool Coal Man won 10 and earned a total of $929,728. Cool Coal Man was the victor in his first seven career starts and placed in five graded stakes. Perhaps one of his best races is his Grade II Fountain of Youth Stakes. He earned a 107 Beyer rating when he was victorious in the Albert the Great Stakes in 2009 which he won by 12-3/4 lengths.
Brent Fernung said of the horse,
Cool Coal Man was a top racehorse with a great pedigree. He's a grade II winner at 3, earned over $900,000, and won from 6-1/2 furlongs up to a mile and an eighth. We appreciate Mr. LaPenta giving us the opportunity to stand him.
Earlier, Cool Coal Man has been at stud at Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds, also in Ocala, Florida.
His stud fee at Journeyman has been set at $3,500.
