Shanghai Bobby, the champion 2-year-old male of 2012, has been sold to stand in Japan, BloodHorse reports.
The 8-year-old son of Harlan's Holiday will reside at Arrow Stud in Hokkaido, where he arrived from quarantine on Nov. 24. He stood his first five Northern Hemisphere seasons at Ashford Stud in Versailles, Ky.
Shanghai Bobby has sired two crops of racing age, with five stakes winners and combined progeny earnings of $4,199,482. His runners are led by Shang Shang Shang, who won the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes on this year's Royal Ascot card.
On his own accord, Shanghai Bobby earned his champion juvenile honors on the strength of a resume that featured wins in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, G1 Champagne Stakes, G2 Hopeful Stakes, and listed Track Barron Stakes. He returned during an injury-plagued 3-year-old season to win the Aljamin Stakes.
