Sunday Silence(USA) is now less dominant than he used to be in this category, as his daughters are getting old.
His record earnings as a broodmare sire was JPY 8,340,112,500 in 2011.

He is a bit butt high and a bit downhill but I think his swaying back makes it look worse than it is. If you take a straight line and draw it from the highest point of his withers horizontally, there's not that much of a difference.

Considering that Sunday died in 2002 at 15 years old by the calendar (16 by TB official birthdays), and he only sired 11 crops of foals, the fact that he's still such a tremendous influence is stunning.

So he moved KJ to Hill and Dale because he wanted to get out of the stallion business and you proceed to bring in We Miss Artie for what reason, exactly? The man makes NO sense.

Firstly it seems like a few stallions are making the trip overseas right now and second does anyone think wee miss Artie will have much success in Kentucky or is he better as a regional sire

I thought he was much better off in a regional market or Canada, where he was. However, I did not check to see how many mares he bred in 2017. He was always going to be a tough sell, though, because he did his best running on synthetic and has some conformation issues that I don't think anything else about him would make people want to overlook. His pedigree would be most kindly described as workmanlike.

He covered 29 mares (22 live foals) in 2016, 34 mares in 2017.

Not sure how a move to Kentucky and a bump in fee from $3,000 CAD to $5,000 USD will drum up mares... :roll:

Didn't realize until I saw the TV ad that Stanford has come to California (Tommy Town). Good addition.
