Creative Cause, Heart To Heart Shuttling To Uruguay For 2022 Southern Hemisphere Season

Creative Cause at Airdrie Stud 5.15.13.

Kentucky-based stallions Creative Cause and Heart to Heart will shuttle to Haras Phillipson in Uruguay for the 2022 Southern Hemisphere breeding season, the South American publication Turf Diario reports.

Creative Cause, a 13-year-old son of Giant's Causeway, resides at Airdrie Stud in Midway, Ky., where he stood for an advertised fee of $7,500 during the recently completed Northern Hemisphere season.

From seven crops of racing age, Creative Cause has sired 300 winners and amassed combined progeny earnings in excess of $27.2 million.

Leading the way among his runners are Grade 1 winner Pavel, Grade 2 winner Significant Form, and Grade 3 winner My Boy Jack. Creative Cause is also the sire of Creative Minister, who ran third in this year's Preakness Stakes.

During his own on-track career, Creative Cause won four of 10 starts for earnings of $1,039,000. As a 2-year-old, he won the Grade 1 Norfolk Stakes and the G2 Best Pal Stakes, and he finished third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile. He came back at three to win the G2 San Felipe Stakes and finish third in the Preakness.

Heart to Heart, an 11-year-old English Channel horse, recently completed his third season at stud at Crestwood Farm in Lexington, Ky., where he stood for $5,000. His first foals are yearlings of 2022.

Over seven season of racing, Heart to Heart won 15 of 41 starts for earnings of $2,035,090.

After starting his career over synthetic surfaces, Heart to Heart was moved to the turf at three, and took home the G3 Jefferson Cup Stakes and Commonwealth Turf Stakes, both at Churchill Downs. He won another pair of Grade 3 races as a 4-year-old, in the Oceanport Stakes at Monmouth and the River City Handicap at Churchill.

Heart to Heart's stock continued to climb as a 5-year-old, when he won a trio of graded stakes, including the G2 Fort Lauderdale Stakes at Gulfstream Park. He notched a couple more graded victories at six, in the G2 Bernard Baruch Handicap at Saratoga and the G3 Canadian Turf Stakes at Gulfstream.

As a 7-year-old, Heart to Heart finally broke through the class ceiling, and notched a pair of Grade 1 victories after several times on the board at that level, winning the G1 Gulfstream Park Turf Stakes and the G1 Maker's 46 Mile Stakes.
