Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred | Favorites

  • 1

A son of Seeking the Gold, Petionville is the sire of 46 stakes winners and 48 stakes-placed runners, and is represented by at least one stakes winner in 13 consecutive crops. Among his top performers are $2-million earner Island Fashion, winner of the Grade 1 Alabama, La Brea and Santa Monica Stakes, and millionaire Two Step Salsa, a graded stakes winner in the U.S. and winner of the Godolphin Mile-G2 in Dubai.

Petionville has total progeny earnings in excess of $39 million from 14 crops to race, and has held the distinction in recent years as the leading stallion in North America by lifetime percentage of starters from foals of racing age. Based on durability and soundness studies conducted by the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation on North America stallions’ progeny through 2012, 85.98% of Petionville’s 642 foals of racing age had started. The stallion also ranks in the top 10 among the nation’s sires by lifetime starts per starter.

Petionville launched his stud career in Kentucky. Since his move to the Mid-Atlantic, he has been one of the busiest stallions in the region, covering nearly 100 mares over the past two seasons.

A multiple graded stakes winner of $811,905, Petionville is out of Wavering Monarch’s stakes-winning daughter Vana Turns and is a half-brother to Kentucky Oaks-G1 winner Pike Place Dancer and French stakes winner Midnight Foxtrot (GB). “Petionville is a stallion with a lot of presence and is such a gentleman,” said Murray. “We’re excited to have him.” Petionville’s stud fee is $6,000, payable when the foal stands and nurses, with discounts available for multiple bookings.
