REDEEMED, a wonderfully consistent son of Grade 1-winning millionaire Include, will enter stud at Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City, Md., for 2013. The 4-year-old, who was retired by owner Samantha Siegel’s Jay Em Ess Stable in September, will stand for $3,000 S&N. He was bred in Virginia by Wayne & Susie Taylor's Morgan Ford Farm.
"Redeemed is the entire package," said Northview's bloodstock manager Carl McEntee. "He was quick, and could carry that speed a distance while being extremely competitive against top quality fields. And he offers breeders plenty of options, being a grandson of Broad Brush out of a  *Ribot-line mare from great Calumet Farm and Tartan Farm families. He has a pedigree that is free of Raise a Native and Mr. Prospector and has one distant cross of Northern Dancer."
A stakes winner over the past two seasons, Redeemed was third or better in 12 of his 13 starts while amassing $832,140. He won his final three starts, all stakes. Redeemed was a combination of speed and stamina. Counted among Redeemed's eight stakes wins or placings was a second to Caleb’s Posse in Saratoga’s six and a half-furlong Amsterdam S.-G2 while defeating To Honor and Serve and Justin Phillip. He also displayed his speed when getting his first win, a six-furlong maiden special at Gulfstream Park, while racing on the front-end and stopping the clock in 1:09.73. He ran six and a half furlongs at Belmont Park, winning in 1:15.82. “He won from six furlongs to one and a half miles. . . that doesn’t happen too often,” Siegel told The Blood-Horse upon his retirement.
Redeemed scored easily by 9 3?4 lengths over a sloppy track Belmont Park’s mile and an eighth Milesius S., followed that with a 10-length romp in Belmont’s time-honored Brooklyn H.-G2 at a mile and a half, and concluded his career with a record-setting performance in Parx Racing’s mile and a half Gr. 3 Greenwood Cup S. as the 1-10 favorite, in which he slashed nearly two seconds off the track record (completing the distance in 2:28.01) and defeated a field that included Not Abroad and Win Willy. He is Grade 1-placed in the Donn H., defeating Flat Out, Trickmeister, Shackleford and Ruler On Ice while running a 105 Beyer.
