Unusual Heat to Stand at Harris Farms

COALINGA, Calif. (June 29, 2010) -- Top California stallion Unusual Heat has been relocated to Harris Farms and will stand there for the 2011 breeding season.

Unusual Heat moves to Harris Farms after 12 highly successful breeding seasons at Old English Rancho in Sanger, CA. Unusual Heat set the all time California record for progeny earnings in 2008 with over $5.8 million, was again the California Earnings champion for 2009 and is currently the leading sire in California in 2010 as well as the third leading turf sire in North America.

Unusual Heat is the sire of 27 stakes winners and 15 other stakes-placed runners, including seven graded stakes winners (three Grade I winners), one Group I stakes winner and seven additional graded stakes placed runners. Current standout runners include Grade I winners The Usual Q.T., Acclamation and Grade II winner Pretty Unusual.

“I am delighted to announce that Unusual Heat will stand at Harris Farms for the 2011 Breeding Season and hopefully for the remainder of his breeding career,” said Madeline Auerbach. “I wish to thank Buddy Johnston and all of the people at Old English Rancho for a tremendous 12-year run. I appreciate all of their dedication and hard work that contributed to the success of Unusual Heat and his progeny. At the same time, I look forward to our new partnership with John Harris, Dave McGlothlin and the entire team at Harris Farms.”

Harris Farms will not only be the new home of Unusual Heat, but also of the California based breeding and broodmare operation for both Madeline Auerbach and long time partner-trainer Barry Abrams. Notable broodmares of the partners moving to Harris Farms include stakes producers Lethal Leta, Bel Air Belle, Little Hottie, Style of The Year and True Melody.

Harris Farms is a California institution in thoroughbred breeding, racing and stallion operations. Chairman John Harris heads this family run operation based in Coalinga, CA and located throughout in the heart of California’s central valley with several locations. Harris Farms is best known for being the birthplace and original home of two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic champion Tiznow.

In addition to Unusual Heat, Harris Farms’ stallion roster includes Cee’s Tizzy (sire of two Eclipse Award winners), High Brite, Swiss Yodeler and eight others.
