Canadian classic winner Coltimus Prime will move to Beau Valley Stable in Didsbury, Alberta for his first year at stud, BloodHorse reports.

The 8-year-old Milwaukee Brew horse was originally scheduled to begin his stallion career in 2019 at Curraghmore Farm in Ontario, but a soft tissue injury suffered on the racetrack kept him from covering his first test mare until April. At that point, the breeding season was already well underway, leading owner Jayson Horner to rest Coltimus Prime for the season.

Coltimus Prime finished his on-track career with eight wins in 38 starts for earnings of $644,125. He earned his first stakes victory in the 2014 Prince of Wales Stakes at Fort Erie, the middle jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown. Former jockey Rene Douglas bought the horse in 2017 and relocated him to Panama, where he earned the country's champion older horse and champion stayer titles that year.

His first season in Panama was highlighted by a victory in the Group 1 Clasico Presidente de la Republica, and he returned to the U.S. to finish his campaign with a score in the Invitational Cup Stakes on the Clasico Internacional del Caribe card at Gulfstream Park.

Bred in Ontario, Coltimus Prime is out of the unplaced Distorted Humor mare Certainly Special.

Coltimus Prime will stand for $2,500 Canadian.
