Warrior’s Reward, a grade 1-winning son of Medaglia d’Oro, has relocated from Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky to WynOaks Farm near Delta, Pa., where he will stand the 2019 breeding season for $4,500 with special consideration for mares foaling in Pennsylvania.
“I am grateful to Spendthrift Farm for giving us the opportunity to bring an established and highly ranked sire to Pennsylvania,” said WynOaks managing partner Donald Brown. “Warrior’s Reward has proven that he gives mares a chance to produce any quality of racehorse.”
Warrior’s Reward is represented this year by eight black-type winners, including multiple graded stakes winner Axelrod, who won the Smarty Jones Stakes (G3) and Indiana Derby (G3); Warrior’s Club, winner of the Commonwealth Stakes (G3) at Keeneland and second in the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap (G1) at Saratoga Race Course; and Yockey’s Warrior, Medal of Courage, T Rex Express, Georgia’s Reward, and Battle Station.
Winner of the Carter Handicap (G1) at 4, defeating Musket Man and Munnings , Warrior’s Reward bankrolled $565,716. He earned the co-highest Beyer Speed Figure by a 3-year-old of his crop with a 113 and, all told, won four of 17 starts and placed in seven others.
“Warrior’s Reward provides Pennsylvania breeders an awesome opportunity to breed to a proven stallion with a superb pedigree,” said stallion manager Thomas Reigle.
