Know It Now, a winning son of 2015 American Triple Crown winner American Pharoah , will enter stud at Schweer Farm near Mayerthorpe, Alberta, according to the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society. He will stand for CA$1,800 with a CA$200 booking fee.
Calumet Farm bred the young stallion out of the grade 3-placed winner Before You Know It, a daughter of Hard Spun and a half sister to grade 2-placed winner Tarantino (Pioneerof the Nile) and grade 3-placed winner Instant Reflex (Quality Road ).
The immediate family also has produced group 1 winner and European highweight Starman; grade 1-placed, multiple graded stakes winner and sire Olmodavor; grade 1-placed Tampa Bay Derby (G2) winner King Guillermo; and, multiple group winner Slow Pace.
Know It Now raced at 3 and 4, compiling a 2-0-4 record from 10 starts. He became a winner in his third career start (first start at 4) at Parx Racing and followed with a half-length win going seven furlongs at Parx for owner Jack Armstrong and trainer Philip Aristone.
Know It Now is American Pharoah's first son to stand in Canada. American Pharoah, a son of Pioneerof the Nile, swept the Triple Crown and won the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) on his way to earning $8,650,300. He is the leading North American fifth-crop sire by cumulative progeny earnings at more than $39 million and the leader by cumulative grade 1 winners with six.
