The Paulick Report is pleased to bring back a popular photo/video feature that will run periodically over the next few weeks and will spotlight stallions standing in Kentucky.

The series, put together by our friends at EquiSport Photos, will feature stallions that have either just entered stud in 2017, or stallions that have not yet had their first crop reach the racetrack.

This week's spotlight stallion is Cairo Prince, a 6-year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile that stands at Airdrie Stud.

Cairo Prince broke his maiden in his career debut, winning a six-furlong maiden special weight at Belmont Park in the fall of 2013. The handsome colt made a successful leap into graded stakes company in his next start, taking the G2 Nashua Stakes by 2 1/2 lengths. He then wrapped up his juvenile season with a narrow nose defeat to future Eclipse champion Honor Code in the G2 Remsen.

Cairo Prince began his sophomore season with a bang, taking the G2 Holy Bull Stakes by 5 3/4 lengths and stamping himself as an early favorite for the Kentucky Derby.

In what would be his final career start, Cairo Prince finished fourth in the G1 Florida Derby. Shortly thereafter the colt sustained an injury to his left front ankle that required surgery. He eventually was retired from racing a few months later.

Cairo Prince entered stud in 2015 at Airdrie Stud. His first crop are yearlings.

We hope you enjoy this feature, and we would once again like to thank our friends at EquiSport Photos for the great video.
