Instilled Regard carries Larry Best’s OXO Equine colors to victory in the Manhattan
Grade 1 winner Instilled Regard will begin his stud career at Taylor Made Stallions in Nicholasville, Ky., for the 2021 breeding season, the farm announced Friday on social media.
The 5-year-old son of Arch will stand for an advertised fee of $12,500. His retirement to stud was announced on Tuesday, along with the revelation that his first book of mares would include Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner Blue Prize. Both horses are owned by Larry Best’s OXO Equine.
Instilled Regard finished fourth the 2018 Kentucky Derby, behind Triple Crown winner Justify, Good Magic, and Audible.
He won the Grade 3 Lecomte Stakes as a 3-year-old, then he took the G2 Ft. Lauderdale Stakes at four. His most successful season came this year at age five, which included victories in the G1 Manhattan Stakes and G2 Fort Marcy Stakes.
In total, he finished his on-track career with five wins in 18 starts for earnings of $983,240.
Instilled Regard is out of the winning Forestry mare Enhancing. His second dam is the champion Heavenly Prize, putting him in the family of Grade 1 winners Oh What a Windfall, Good Reward, and Persistently, as well as Grade 2 winner Pure Prize.
