EC Jet One, the winner of the $2.4-million All American Derby (G1) on September 4, has been retired from racing and will stand the 2017 season at Granada Farms at Wheelock, Texas.
Owned by Enrique Carrion, EC Jet One was trained by Judd Kearl and raced in Texas, Florida, and New Mexico. The colt earned $1,370,385 from 10 starts, and his three stakes wins included the South Florida and Hialeah derbies earlier this year. He also ran third, 1 3/4 lengths behind winner Ivan James, in last year's Grade 2, $621,000 Sam Houston Futurity at Sam Houston Race Park.
"We're absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to manage EC Jet One for his breeding duties," said Granada Farms manager Jimmy Eller. "He was a spectacular racehorse and he is a spectacular specimen. I'm sure he will continue to make a positive impact on our breed through his offspring."
EC Jet One currently ranks number one on the AQHA Racing-Horseplayer.now poll for 3-year-olds and older. His fee has been set at $5,000.
