Caleb’s Posse, winner of the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1), will relocate to River Oaks Farm in Sulphur, Okla., the farm announced Oct. 25.
Caleb’s Posse has stood at Three Chimneys Farm since entering stud in 2013. In his first crop, the son of Posse produced 29 winners from 34 runners, including stakes winners Girls Know Best and Sweet Posse. Overall, he has 48 winners from three crops of racing age, with progeny earnings of more than $2.8 million.
“I’m excited about getting Caleb’s Posse to Oklahoma, where his first three dams were raised and where his damsire, Slewacide, a perennial leading sire in Oklahoma, stood for many years,” said co-owner Everett Dobson, who will retain an interest in the stallion and continue to support him in Oklahoma. “We think he is excellent for the state-bred program, and a great opportunity for breeders in Oklahoma to take advantage of a two-time Eclipse Award nominee and one of the most impressive racehorses of his generation.”
Conditioned by Donnie Von Hemel, Caleb’s Posse won eight of 19 starts, including victories in the 2011 Foxwoods King’s Bishop Stakes (G1). That win combined with his Breeders’ Cup triumph helped make Caleb’s Posse an Eclipse Award finalist that season for divisional honors. He retired with earnings of $1,423,379.
