Multiple graded stakes winner Conveyance has been retired and will stand the 2016 breeding season at Douglas S. Arnold's Buck Pond Farm.

A $240,000 Keeneland September yearling, Conveyance burst onto the racing scene as a two-year-old with a wire-to-wire win at Oak Tree at Santa Anita, zipping six furlongs in 1:09.70, followed by a smashing 7-length allowance win at Hollywood Park in 1:09 flat for trainer Bob Baffert and owner Thoroughbred Legends Racing Stable.

Purchased privately by Zabeel Racing International, Conveyance won the San Rafael S. (G3) over a mile in his three-year-old debut at Santa Anita before shipping to Oaklawn Park and dominating other Triple Crown hopefuls in the Southwest S. (G3), his fourth consecutive victory.

After a second-place finish in the Sunland Derby (G3), Conveyance headed to the Kentucky Derby (G1), where he set a blistering early pace of :22.63, 46.15, and 1:10.58 before finishing off the board over the sloppy Churchill Downs surface.

Conveyance was sent to Dubai as a four-year-old, where he ran second in the Mahaab al Shimaal (G3) at Meydan Racecourse for trainer Satish Seemar.  He retires with earnings of $496,560.

By leading sire Indian Charlie out of the Holy Bull mare Emptythetill, Conveyance was bred by Gulf Coast Farms, LLC and is a half-brother to stakes-placed Atlantic Bull.  He hails from the family of Grade 1 winners Plum Pretty, Secret Hello, and Monba.

“Conveyance is smashing individual with a great pedigree,” Buck Pond Farm owner Doug Arnold stated.  “With Uncle Mo on top of the first-crop sire list, Adios Charlie juveniles impressing at the sales, and Liaison's exciting first foals, Indian Charlie is an emerging sire-of-sires.  Holy Bull is becoming a top broodmare sire, as well.”

“We believe Conveyance will be very popular,” said Arnold.  “We're thrilled to have him.”

Both shares and breeding rights will be sold.  Anyone with interest should contact Buck Pond Farm at (859) 873-4081.
