Overanalyze, G1-winning millionaire by Dixie Union, retires to WinStar
Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Overanalyze, this year’s 4 ¼-length winner of the Arkansas Derby (G1), has been retired from racing and will stand the 2014 breeding season at WinStar Farm in Versailles, KY as a participant in WinStar’s Dream Big program.

The Dream Big program offers breeders the opportunity to earn a lifetime breeding right in Overanalyze by breeding & producing two live foals on stands & nurses contracts in the first two years of his stallion career. His 2014 fee will be $10,000 stands & nurses.

“Overanalyze is currently the last Grade 1 winner by Dixie Union, who was proving to be a great sire from a very important line before his early passing,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar President & CEO. “Overanalyze has a very similar profile as Union Rags, so we believe he presents tremendous value through our Dream Big program. We’ve had success with our breeding rights programs with stallions like Spring At Last and Hold Me Back, and we think Overanalyze is going to be very popular as well.”

Campaigned by Repole Stable and trainer Todd Pletcher, Overanalyze started his career fast as one of North America’s top 2-year-olds of 2012. He impressively captured his debut at Saratoga with a wire-to-wire win in :57 2/5 for five furlongs before winning the Futurity S. (G2) at Belmont, drawing off by 3 ¼ lengths from off the pace.

Overanalyze stretched out to 1 1/8 miles to win the Remsen S. (G2) at Aqueduct over Normandy Invasion, earning a 99 Beyer to close out his multiple graded stakes-winning juvenile campaign. His 99 Beyer represented the fastest Beyer earned by a 2-year-old over a mile in 2012, and Overanalyze was weighted at 120 lbs. on the Experimental Free Handicap.

In 2013, Overanalyze scored his biggest career win in the $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1), cruising to a decisive open-lengths victory over a field that included eventual Preakness winner Oxbow. He retires as the late Dixie Union’s last Grade 1-winning millionaire to enter stud, with three major graded stakes wins and lifetime earnings of $1,046,381.

“Overanalyze is a Grade 1 winner by a good sire, was an expensive yearling, and was a multiple graded-winning 2-year-old. What more can you say? He has every chance to be a quality sire,” Pletcher said.

Out of the mare Unacloud, Overanalyze is a half-brother to Grade 1-winning juvenile Meadow Breeze. Repole purchased Overanalyze at the 2011 Keeneland September sale for $380,000, marking the highest price for a yearling by Dixie Union that year.

“Overanalyze’s Arkansas Derby win was as impressive of a Derby prep as there was all season in my opinion,” said Repole. “I love this horse’s attributes. WinStar has committed to breeding 10 mares to him, and I told them I’d match that with 10 of my own mares.”

Overanalyze is currently available for inspection at WinStar. For more information, please contact Darren Fox or Chance Timm at 859-297-1328, or visit WinStarFarm.com.
