Offaly, Ireland – Oakwood Stud management has announced that they have purchased the racehorse/stallion Foreclosure N in the United States and will stand him for the remainder of the 2015 season in Ireland. A selling price was not disclosed.

“While on our recent tour of the USA last week,” said Derek Delaney of Oakwood Stud, “I met with Mark Weaver at the Meadows and went out and saw the stallion on the farm and thought he would be perfect for us in Ireland. Within a week we struck a deal.”

Forclosure N has just about traveled around the world. The stallion by Rocknroll Hanover is from the Australian-bred Fake Left mare Pleasing Package A, who had a great record at the races of 1:50.2 ($324,710).

At two he won five times, including victories in the NJSS Championship - where he paced Freehold's half-mile track in 1:54.3h - and his Breeders Crown elimination where he set his freshman mark of 1:52.1f. At three he finished third in his North America Cup elimination and second in his Meadowlands Pace elimination... in both finals he drew PP #10 yet still managed to finish fourth both times, beaten less than three lengths in each.

Foreclosure N was a six-time winner as an older horse and his record mile and biggest win of his career came in the $182,000 American National at Balmoral Park in 2012. There he romped by six and one-half lengths in 1:48.4 in defeating Foiled Again, Golden Receiver, Aracahe Hanover and Razzle Dazzle. In that race he took the field to the three-quarters in 1:19.

With a final record of 1:48.4 and career earnings of $807,000, Foreclosure N had a promising career until age 5 when an injury sidelined him to stallion duty for the rest of his career. He was owned by Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and the JJK Stables.

Foreclosure N stood his first season in Ohio and now has 19 yearlings from his first crop.

“My brother James, who runs Oakwood Stud, says this is a perfect stallion for us to stand,” Derek Delaney said. “The quarantine will go fast and we hope to breed at least 40 or more mares this first season. We have not yet set a stud fee price.”

The stuff fee on Foreclosure N will be €700 and interested parties can contact James Delaney at +0851105010 or email derekd105@gmail.com.
