OCEANUS  was bred in Kentucky by Dr. & Mrs. R. Smiser West & W. S. Farish, sold at the prestigious 2008 Keeneland September Yearling Sale for $450,000, and was nominated to the Triple Crown Series. Unfortunately, dreams of his promising race career ended when he bowed a tendon, and it was determined best not to race the talented, well bred colt.
. 
Bred to be a sire, by leading sire & sire-of-sires, Champion A.P. INDY, and out of graded placed multiple stakes winner & graded stakes producer, SWAZI'S MOMENT. Oceanus is a half brother to leading sire, multiple grade 2 stakes winner, KAFWAIN, who ran 2nd in the 2002 $1,000,000 Breeders Cup Juvenile -G1 to champion Vindication. With only 4 full crops to race, KAFWAIN is proving himself as a leading sire nationally and is currently California's leading sire, sire of earners of over $8 million, including 11 stakes winners and five are graded stakes performers. Oceanus' 1st and 2nd dams are both stakes winners and stakes producers. His first seven dams are all stakes producers. This promising young stallion is bred to have a huge future as a sire.
