Yeomanstown To Stand Son Of Scat Daddy

Yeomanstown will stand El Kabeir (Scat Daddy-Great Venue, by Unbridled’s Song), a triple graded winner and his sire’s highest-rated 2-year-old colt in America, in 2018. Trained by Bill Mott for Zayat Stables, El Kabeir was named a ‘TDN Rising Star’ after breaking his maiden by 10 3/4 lengths at Saratoga as a 2-year-old in 2014. He won the G2 Kentucky Jockey Club S. later that season before adding Aqueduct’s G3 Jerome S. over a mile and G3 Gotham S. going 1 1/16 miles early in his 3-year-old campaign. Third in the 1 1/8-mile GI Wood Memorial, he dropped back to seven furlongs to win the Listed City of Laurel S. later that year. El Kabeir was a $250,000 yearling at OBS August. Yeomanstown’s Gay O’Callaghan said, “we are delighted to have purchased El Kabeir, he is an exceptional individual with a race record to match and will offer the European breeder a further chance to avail of the precocious and exciting Scat Daddy bloodlines.”

Zayat Stables owner Ahmed Zayat said, “El Kabeir is a magnificent-looking animal. His talent was clear to see early on, hence we gave him such a good name, El Kabeir, meaning ‘The Boss.’ We had American Pharoah for the Derby and El Kabeir had such natural speed, we decided to keep him to a mile. He ran in the money 13 times from five furlongs to 1 1/16 miles–a proper racehorse. We look forward to seeing his future progeny in the sales ring and [on the] racetrack and will be actively supporting his stallion career with mares and in the sales ring.”

The deal was brokered by Brad Weisbord and BSW Bloodstock.
