A $185,000 yearling who became a $675,000 breeze-up colt, Corfu made a winning debut over five furlongs at Saratoga in late July of his two-year-old season, added the Group 2 Saratoga Special Stakes over six and a half furlongs at Saratoga, and was also Grade 2-placed at Belmont. He stands at Bridlewood Farm in Florida, he covered 55 mares in his first season and 24 in his second. He did not have any Keeneland September Yearling Sale offerings, but one of his daughters made $110,000 at Fasig-Tipton, in Kentucky, in July.
Like classic star and hugely popular young stallion Orb, Corfu is a son of leading sire Malibu Moon (by A.P. Indy) and so he represents one of the most powerful sire lines in the USA. His siblings include the stakes-placed filly Runway Ready (by Mr Greeley), and his dam, Fashion Cat (by Forest Wildcat), is a winning half-sister to the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational Stakes, Grade 1 Suburban Handicap and Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes hero Peace Rules (by Jules).
That nine-times winner also took the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby, the Grade 2 New Orleans Handicap, the Grade 2 Oaklawn Handicap and the Grade 3 Generous Stakes, he was runner-up to Ten Most Wanted in the Grade 1 Travers Stakes and third to Funny Cide and Empire Maker in the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby. He has a long list of six-figured earners to his name and some of them are stakes winners.
