Revved Up, a multiple graded stakes-placed son of Candy Ride (Arg), has been retired to stand his first season at stud at Lori and Francisco Bravo’s River Oaks Farms in Sulphur, Oklahoma. He will stand for a fee of $2,000 as property of the Revved Up Partnership.
Bred by the renowned Phipps Stable, Revved Up is by one of North America’s top stallions and sire of sires in Candy Ride and out of Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) winner and champion Storm Flag Flying. A five-time winner with earnings of more than $370,000, Revved Up finished second in the Arlington Handicap (G3) and third in the River City Handicap (G3).
Revved Up ran for the Phipps Stable and trainer Shug McGaughey for much of his career, and then was sold for $350,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Horses of Racing Age in 2018 and finished his racing in the barn of trainer Mark Casse.
“We are very excited about having him,” said Francisco Bravo. “He’s a really well-bred horse. Candy Ride is a tremendous stallion and so are many of his sons, and the race record and pedigree of Storm Flag Flying speaks for itself. Revved Up had most of his success going long on the turf, but when you look at his bloodlines he should be a versatile stallion and we think he’s going to generate a lot of interest among Oklahoma breeders.”
