Songandaprayer, a steady presence at stud in the southeast for most of the past two decades, has been pensioned from commercial stud duty, Bloodhorse reports.
The 21-year-old son of Unbridled's Song most recently stood at Journeyman Stallions in Ocala, Fla.
Songandaprayer first grabbed headlines as a juvenile when he sold to Bobby and Leslie Hurley for $1 million at the 2000 Fasig-Tipton Florida Select 2-Year-Olds In Training Sale. D.J Stable later joined the ownership group.
The colt went on to win the listed Huntington Stakes as a juvenile. At three, he won the Grade 1 Fountain of Youth Stakes and finished second in the G1 Blue Grass Stakes en route to a start in the 2001 Kentucky Derby.
Songandaprayer retired to stud at Marablue Farm in Florida for the 2002 breeding season, and he resided in the state for four seasons, also spending time at Hartley/DeRenzo Walmac South. The Walmac Farm operation then relocated the stallion to its Kentucky base. He was later relocated to The Stallion Station at Copper Crowne in Louisiana for five seasons before returning to Florida to stand at Journeyman Stallions.
His 15 crops of racing age are led by G2 winners Songster and What a Song, G3 winners Praying For Cash and Prudhoe Bay, and graded-placed Reveron, Go Go Shoot, Dan the Tin Man, and Say A Novena.
