He's So Chic, a multiple stakes-placed winner of $615,358, has been retired and will stand the 2014 breeding season at Flying P Ranch in Hope Hull, Alabama.

The son of graded stakes-winning juvenile Jump Start out of the Private Terms mare So Chic will stand for $2,000, with special consideration to approved mares.

A $110,000 Keeneland November weanling, He's So Chic won a maiden special weight race going 6 furlongs at Monmouth Park in his third career start, and compiled a record of 15 wins, 9 seconds and 11 thirds in 51 career starts, including runner-up finishes in Aqueduct's Fall Highweight Handicap under 127 pounds (earning a career high 109 Beyer Speed Figure) behind multiple Grade 1 winner Fabulous Strike, Monmouth's Teddy Drone Stakes and Tampa Bay's Pelican Stakes — all at 6 furlongs. He's So Chic ran third in two additional Monmouth Park stakes events.

He's So Chic is from the immediate female family of such standout racehorses and/or sires as Sightseeing, With Distinction, All Gone, Val's Prince, Duty Dance, Russian Roubles, Goodbye Halo and Party Manners.

“He's So Chic is an incredibly sound, lightning fast A.P. Indy-line stallion whose first five dams all descend from the legendary Phipps family/Wheatley Stable breeding program, tracing back to blue hens Discipline and Lady Be Good,” said Flying P owner Bobby Pruitt, who will stand the horse in partnership with NY-based Drawing Away Stables. “He presents an unprecedented opportunity for breeders in Alabama and surrounding states to tap into to New York stakes-quality speed, exceptional durability and a pedigree that's dripping with the finest black-type.”

The deal was brokered by New Jersey-based bloodstock agent Michael Slezak.
