Drain the Clock, a lightning-fast Grade 1-winning sprinter, will enter stud at Gainesway in Lexington, Ky., for the 2023 breeding season.

The 4-year-old son of Maclean’s Music showed precocity to break his maiden by a wire-to-wire six lengths as a juvenile at Gulfstream Park. He won four of his first five starts going into his 3-year-old season, culminating with a 6 ¼-length score in the Swale Stakes (G3).

Two starts later, Drain the Clock added another front-running score in the Bay Shore Stakes (G3) at Aqueduct before earning his crowning achievement in the Woody Stephens Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park.

In the Grade 1 Woody Stephens, Drain the Clock dueled with champion sprinter Jackie’s Warrior and he prevailed by a neck. Drain the Clock was the first horse to defeat Jackie’s Warrior around one turn.

Drain the Clock retired with seven wins in 15 career starts, including three victories in graded stakes races, for earnings of $698,000.

Possessing a standout physical, Drain the Clock is out of the Arch mare Manki. He was bred in Kentucky by Nick Cosato and raced for Cosato’s Slam Dunk Racing, Madaket Stables LLC, Wonder Stables, and Michael Nentwig. Drain the Clock was trained by Saffie Joseph Jr.

“Drain the Clock is an imposing physical with tremendous speed who fits the mold of what breeders are looking for,” said Gainesway’s newly appointed stallion director Ryan Norton. “That is why we are excited to offer Share The Upside breeding rights in this exciting new stallion.”

Drain the Clock will stand for $10,000 in 2023. Please contact Ryan Norton for details regarding how to earn your breeding right through our Share the Upside program.
