BRODY’S CAUSE, a Grade 1 winner at two and at three in the US, has been retired from racing to join the roster at Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky.

The son of Giant’s Causeway took the scalp of subsequent Preakness hero Exaggerator when he won the Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland last year, before he finished third in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.

Trained by Dale Romans for the Albaugh Family Stable, Brody’s Cause also won the Blue Grass Stakes in April before finishing seventh to Nyquist in the Kentucky Derby.

He was bred by Gabriel Duignan and William Arvin Jr out of the Canadian stakes-placed Sahm mare Sweet Breanna.

“Brody’s Cause ticks all the boxes in terms of the credentials needed to make a top sire,” said Spendthrift general manager Ned Toffey.

“He’s one of the best-looking sons of proven sire of sires Giant’s Causeway you’ll ever see, and he won prestigious Grade 1 races at two and three. We believe it’s another terrific opportunity to get in on a stallion prospect with huge potential through our Share The Upside program, and we expect he’ll be popular.”

The Share The Upside fee for Brody’s Cause will be $15,000 on a two-year commitment, under which breeders will earn a lifetime breeding right beginning in 2019 after having two live foals and paying the stud fees.

For breeders not interested in the Share The Upside programme, Brody’s Cause will be offered for $12,500 on a standard stands and nurses contract.
