Morning Line, a millionaire and Grade 1-winning son of Tiznow, has been retired to stud duty at Lane's End. His dam Indian Snow, is by A.P. Indy out of the multiple Grade 1-winning mare, November Snow.
Morning Line was bred by Dell Ridge Farm and raced by Lane's End, Dixiana Stables and Thoroughbred Legends Racing Stable. As testament to his looks and conformation, Morning Line was sold by Lane's End as agent for $700,000 as a yearling at the Keeneland September Sale.
After breaking his maiden by eight lengths, Morning Line went on to capture three graded events, including the Grade 1 Carter Handicap. After winning the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby, Morning Line finished second, by just a head, in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile. Morning Line has raced against top competition from New York to California, winning over distances from 7 furlongs to 1 1/8 miles.
Lane's End founder Will Farish commented, “We are extremely impressed with Morning Line's race record, and given his striking good looks and exceptional pedigree, he has the potential to make an outstanding sire.”
Morning Line's 2014 stud fee is $10,000, payable when foal stands and nurses. He is available now for inspection at Lane's End.
