Lentenor, a full brother to 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, has been retired and will enter stud in 2013 at Calumet Farm.

Campaigned as a homebred by Roy and Gretchen Jackson’s Lael Stables, the 5-year-old son of Dynaformer won 4 of 17 career starts for earnings of $184,406.

Lentenor also is a full brother to stakes-placed winners Nicanor and Margano, as well as a half-brother to stakes winner Holy Ground.

The stud fee and terms for Lentenor have yet to be set.

    As Barbaro’s brother, Lentenor was quite special to those of us who adored the late, great Barbaro. Of course, neither Lentenor nor any of his siblings could compare to Barbaro and it’s been quite unfair to compare them. I remember when Lentenor was born, I have his baby photo on my screen saver and now he’s retiring to make his own babies. I can’t believe that the loss of Barbaro is still so painful after all these years. Have a great retirement sweet boy…

    This horse wasn’t much to speak of as a racehorse, so why in the world would anyone choose to breed their mare to him?  Calumet must be desperate to fill those stalls in the stallion barn.

      Because of the genes.  A son of Dyanformer may be a hell of a sire too.   Well worth a try and probably very affordable, at least at first.

        Correction: Dynaformer.

          Add Malibu Moon to that list.

        Swiss305,
        How many successful sires can you think of that weren’t pretty good racehorses?  If daddy can’t run, then neither will Jr.  That’s a fact you can take to the bank.

        • Swiss305

          There is evidence that the dam sire is as important or more important to the talent of the offspring as the sire, even if the mare never raced or was minimally successful on the track.  Because of recessive genes, traits skip a generation.  Lentenor was not a complete dud.  You don’t have a long history of semi-successful horses producing star status offspring because they are not often widely bred. The “stars” produce a lot of duds too, you just never hear much about them.  Anyone breeding to Lentenor is looking at recessive genes, his conformation,  a racing history that may or may not have been compromised by injury or other factors and, just as importantly, the pedigree of the mare. This one will be interesting to watch.

    I certainly didn’t expect this. Since the Jacksons are ardent promoters of Pennsylvania racing, I thought he’d be at a PA farm – standing for about $2,000. Well, I missed the first part – I’ll wait and see on the price.
