The first stud book for JK Endofanera p,2, 1:51.4; 3, 1:48.2 ($2,049,580), who was retired from racing earlier this year, is full and closed.

JK Endofanera will stand his first season at stud in 2017 at Victory Hill Farm in LaGrange, Ind. He was bred and campaigned by the 3 Brothers Stable of Steven, Alan and Ron Katz. They sold a significant interest to a group comprised of the same principals who brought Always A Virgin to Indiana.

“He’s an exceptional horse and we’re thrilled that he’s received so much support from significant breeders and will have a great start at stud,” said Bob Boni, a spokesperson for the stallion’s ownership group.

A son of Art Major, JK Endofanera is out of the Presidential Ball mare Presidential Lady, who also has produced 2014 Horse of the Year JK She’salady.

Trained by Ron Burke at ages two and three and Jimmy Takter during his four-year-old season, JK Endofanera beat every top colt of his generation. As a two-year-old he won four of seven starts, among them the $534,500 Governor’s Cup at the Meadowlands, when he took his freshman mark of 1:51.4. At age three he captured the $1 million North America Cup, defeating a field that included Hes Watching and McWicked. In 2015, at age four, he captured the Dan Patch Free-For-All at Hoosier Park by two and a half lengths in 1:48.4, exploding past his rivals with a :26.2 final quarter.
