Western Gambler Relocated to South Plains Veterinary Clinic in Texas

Western Gambler

The Storm Cat stallion Western Gambler has been relocated from New Mexico to Texas and will stand at South Plains Veterinary Clinic in Slaton, near Lubbock. He will stand for a fee of $750 as property of Louis “Bud” Farr, DVM.

Bred by Overbrook Farm out of the Gone West mare Western Eternity, Western Gambler sold for $275,000 as a 2-year-old. Although he did not reach the winner’s circle in six starts on the track, he has found success as a stallion. Among the horses he has sired are Texas-bred Worthington, a stakes winner at Ruidoso Downs and Louisiana Downs; Kimbell, twice stakes-placed last year; and Captain Gambler, a stakes winner and Group 1-placed runner in South Africa. The stallion’s newest stakes winner is Hute, who won the $85,000 Red Hedeman Mile Stakes at Sunland Park in February to improve his record to 4-2-1-0 with earnings of $70,200.
