Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile winner Caleb's Posse will relocate to River Oaks Farm in Sulfur, Okla., for the 2019 breeding season.
Caleb's Posse, who has stood at Three Chimneys Farm since entering stud in 2013, is a leading third-crop sire in North America by percentage of winners to named foals, with $2,837,897 in cumulative earnings. In his first crop, Caleb's Posse boasted 85 percent winners to runners with 29 winners from 34 runners and two stakes winners, including The Very One Stakes and dual stakes winner on both dirt and turf, Girls Know Best ($392,624).
“I'm excited about getting Caleb's Posse to Oklahoma where his first three dams were raised and where his damsire, Slewacide, a perennial leading sire in Oklahoma, stood for many years,” said co-owner Everett Dobson, who will retain an interest in the stallion and continue to support him in Oklahoma. “We think he is excellent for the state bred program and a great opportunity for breeders in Oklahoma to take advantage of a two-time Eclipse Award nominee and one of the most impressive racehorses of his generation.”
Conditioned by Donnie Von Hemel, Caleb's Posse won eight of 19 starts during his racing career, including victories in the 2011 G1 King's Bishop Stakes, defeating Uncle Mo, and that year's Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile at Churchill Downs, defeating Shackleford, Trappe Shot, Tapizar, Jersey Town, Wilburn and The Factor. He retired with earnings of $1,423,379. Caleb's Posse was also a stakes-winner at two, winning the Clever Trevor Stakes at Remington Park.
