Lexitonian to Stand at Lane's End

Grade I winner Lexitonian (Speightstown–Riviera Romper, by Tapit) will stand the 2022 breeding season at Lane's Farm and will command a fee of $10,000.
Winner of the GIII Chick Lang S. as a sophomore in 2019 and beaten a nose I the 2020 GI Bing Crosby S., the Calumet Farm homebred defeated the likes of next-out GII Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix S. winner Special Reserve (Midshipman) and 2020 champion sprinter Whitmore (Pleasantly Perfect) in the prestigious GI Alfred G. Vanderbilt H. at Saratoga this July.
“He's a horse who fights”, said trainer Jack Sisterson. “He has the talent, the will and the heart. He's a class act winning and placing second in multiple Grade I races. I've had a tremendous amount of confidence in him throughout his career because you can run him over any track, and he always knows what to do.”
The chestnut is a grandson of GI Test S. winner Swap Fliparoo (Exchange Rate), and his dam was carrying him when she brought $310,000 at the 2015 Keeneland November sale.
“We are thrilled that Calumet is entrusting us with a horse as special as Lexitonian is,” said Bill Farish of Lane's End Farm. “He has been a consistent top-level performer at all stages of his racing career. He has the pedigree, racing ability and soundness that we think will set him up for success at stud.”
