Gemologist, Tiznow's Grade 1-winning 3-year-old and undefeated G2-winning juvenile, has been relocated from WinStar Farm to Acadiana Equine at Copper Crowne in Opelousas, La., for the upcoming breeding season, in a deal brokered by David Tillson and Docatty Stables. The 9-year-old stallion will stand for $4,500 S&N.
A top five first-crop sire in 2016, a top 10 second-crop sire in 2017 and a leading third-crop sire by winners this year, Gemologist sired G1 Frizette Stakes winner Yellow Agate in his first crop and he is also represented by G3 Futurity Stakes winner Theory and G3 winner Golden Diamond. Gemologist also sired the promising 2-year-old colt Federal Case, an impressive maiden special weight winner at Keeneland in October and a $650,000 acquisition by Robert and Lawana Low out of the WinStar Racing consignment at the recent Keeneland November sale.
The winner of the G1 Wood Memorial at three, Gemologist capped an undefeated juvenile campaign by capturing the G2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes. All told, he won five of seven career starts and earned $794,855.
The regally-bred stallion is out of the Mr. Prospector mare Crystal Shard and hails from a rich Ned Evans female family.
