U S Ranger, a two-time Irish champion by Danzig, sired his first foal
on Jan. 20 when a bay filly was born at Glendalough Farm in Lexington,
Bred by Chip Muth, the newborn filly is out of the Slew o'Gold
mare No More Ironing, dam of multiple stakes winners Sneaky Quiet and
U S Ranger was an undefeated juvenile in France before winning
the Prix Djebel at Maisons-Laffitte and Waterford Testimonial S. at the
Curragh as a 3-year-old. He was Irish highweight over five to seven
furlongs at both 3 and 4. The last important son of Danzig to retire to
stud, U S Ranger hails from the Red Ransom mare My Annette, a
half-sister to Dynaformer.
U S Ranger retired to Pauls Mill in 2010, where he bred 87 mares
in his first book and had the second-highest CPI among first-year
stallions with 3.54. U S Ranger is set to stand his second season at
Pauls Mill for a fee of $5,000 stands and nurses.
