Grade 1 winner Capo Bastone will relocate to O'Sullivan Farms in Charles Town, W.V., for the 2020 breeding season, where he will stand for an advertised fee of $2,000.

The 9-year-old son of Street Boss previously stood at Adena Springs in Paris, Ky. His first foals are 3-year-olds of 2019.

Capo Bastone's runners are led by Starship Nala, who has finished on the board in four stakes races in Florida, with career earnings of $240,050.

Capo Bastone won three of 17 starts during his own racing career for earnings of $731,756. His most notable victory came in the Grade 1 King's Bishop Stakes at Saratoga, where he closed hard to win by two lengths.

Though his biggest win came at three, Capo Bastone also made an impact as a 2-year-old. He won on debut at Del Mar going 5 1/2 furlongs, and later finished third in the Grade 1 FrontRunner Stakes and Breeders' Cup Juvenile. Prior to his King's Bishop win the following season, Capo Bastone also ran second in the G3 Derby Trial Stakes at Churchill Downs.

Bred in Kentucky by Hargus Sexton, Sandra Sexton, Tom Bozarth and Silver Fern Farm, Capo Bastone is out of the stakes-placed Fit to Fight mare Fight to Love, whose runners also include Grade 2-placed C J's Leelee.

His extended family includes Canadian champion Fantasy Lake, Grade 2 winner Why Change, and Grade/Group 3 winners Jetto and Tobin Lad.

Special considerations will be made for multiple-mare bookings to Capo Bastone.
