Caines Stallion Station near Wynnewood, Oklahoma, has announced that Home of the Brave will stand his first season at stud in 2017. The 2013 son of Horse of the Year and two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner Tiznow will stand for an introductory fee of $1,000.
The unraced Home of the Brave is a full brother to WinStar Farm homebred Well Armed, an earner of nearly $5.2 million who won the Group 1, $6 million Dubai World Cup by a record-breaking 14 lengths in 2009. Well Armed also won three graded stakes in the United States, including the Grade 1 Goodwood Stakes, Grade 2 San Diego Handicap and Grade 2 San Antonio Handicap in California.
With Well Armed being a gelding, Home of the Brave will be the only active stallion by Tiznow out of the stakes-winning Notebook mare Well Dressed. Her other foals include Grade 3 winner Witty and Grade 1-placed Helsinki. There are a total of four track records under Home of the Brave’s first dam.
