Americain announcement in New Year

Calumet Farm has priced Americain at a $20,000 service fee for his first Kentucky book next year.

Americain (Dynaformer – America by Arazi) was raced by Gerry Ryan and Kevin Bamford to 11 wins in 34 starts topped by the 2010 Melbourne Cup.  He bowed out of racing in Green Moon’s 2012 Melbourne Cup.

Calumet purchased a 50% interest in the son of Dynaformer last month.  Americain will stand his first Australian season in the southern spring of 2013 and its location will be announced in the New Year.
