Injured Derby starter heads off to breeding career

Archarcharch, who had surgery after injuring his left front

ankle in the Kentucky Derby, is headed off to a new career as a

stallion.

The colt left Churchill Downs on Friday for Spendthrift Farm in

Lexington, Ky., where he will stand at stud beginning next

year.

Trainer Jinks Fires says he might slip the colt a bag of

peppermints for his trip.

Archarcharch might have been in Baltimore preparing for

Saturday’s Preakness had he not been hurt in the early stages of

the Derby on May 7.
