Returning to Calumet Farm for the 2020 season is Hightail, by Mineshaft out of Stormy Renee (by Storm Cat out of Seattle Slew's multiple Grade 1-winning daughter Fleet Renee).

“He has proven that he can sire a Grade 1 horse on a limited sample size,” said Calumet Farm's director of stallions Jak Knelman. “With small crops and only nine starters, producing a Grade 1 winner and two stakes winners, each with earnings of over $500,000, is a significant feat.”

Mongolian Groom became Hightail's first Grade 1 winner in the Awesome Again Stakes defeating the current Breeders' Cup Classic favorite McKinzie while posting a 110 Beyer Speed Figure. Mongolian Groom currently has his sights set on the $6-million Longines Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 2nd. Also sired by Hightail, Dynatail is a multiple stakes winner with earnings of $529,710.

“As the winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Sprint, Hightail offers the breeder both precocity and speed,” Knelman said. “He is also demonstrating that his progeny can carry that speed at a distance and continue to develop with age.”

Hightail will stand the 2020 season at Calumet Farm with the advertised fee to be announced.
