•El Corredor Sold to Turkish Interests, 10/15•
Grade I winner El Corredor will stand in Turkey for the 2015 breeding season, it was announced Oct. 14.
The 17-year-old son of Mr. Greeley has been purchased by Mr. Tevfik Celikoglu in a deal negotiated by David Tillson of Copper Crown Stallion Station near Opelousas, La., Marie Yoshida of Winchester Farm near Lexington, and Jean-Pierre Deroubaix, FBA, France.
El Corredor stood at Copper Crown Stallion Station in 2014 after moving from Questroyal North, where he stood the 2013 season. He was moved to Questroyal from Hill 'n' Dale Farms, where he began his stallion career in 2002.
Winner of the Cigar Mile (gr. I) in 2000 for Hal J. Earnhardt III and Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, El Corredor retired with earnings of $727,920 and seven wins and a second from 10 starts. He has gone on to sire six grade I winners, 14 graded stakes winners, 34 stakes winners overall, and the earners of more than $34 million. He is the sire of champions in Louisiana, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic.
"El Corredor will continue his fantastic career in Turkey and Mr. Tevfik Celikoglu once again added a wonderful proven sire to the Turkish stallion ranks," Yoshida said. "The Turkish Thoroughbred breeders fully appreciate the quality of El Corredor and he will cover some of their best mares in the years to come."
El Corredor is the sire of Frizette Stakes winner Adieu, Garden City Stakes (gr. IT) victress Backseat Rhythm, Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) winner Dominican, and Santa Anita Oaks (gr. I) winner Crisp, three-time group I winner and champion El Viento, multiple grade I winner El Biologo, and grade I winner Kamica.
A half brother to grade I winner Roman Ruler and grade I-placed Maimonides—both at stud—as well as to the grade III-winning filly Silver Tornado, El Corredor was bred in Kentucky by Needham-Betz Thoroughbreds/Liberation out of the Silver Deputy mare Silvery Swan.
