Pericles 2001 - 2020
A refining sire for breeders of sport...
Pericles is a Thoroughbred Stallion by Silver Deputy, out of Cream Sickle by Rich Cream. While in training with Todd Pletcher, Pericles broke his maiden in a 2 y/o $50k 6 furlong Maiden Special at Keeneland. He was also nominated in 2004 for the Triple Crown. WHE purchased Pericles in 2007 and retired him sound.
He stands 16h and exemplifies modern sport horse characteristics. His quiet and confident temperament is passed on to his progeny. Three high quality gaits and stunning conformation make him suitable for hunter and dressage breeders. He crosses nicely with Draft mares for fox hunting and Arabian mares for Arabian sport horse divisions.
