The Slew Influence

Good read- had the pleasure of seeing him about a year before he died- albeit from a distance. Was more fortunate to get up close and personal with Slew O' Gold- he was a doll.

Has Slew O' Gold left us some decent sons? I was wondering if Seattle Slew's bloodline is flourishing through anyone besides A.P. Indy?

How about Vindication? Cant think of any one off the top of my head- going to have to research a bit.

Vindication could have been a very good sire, but he died of colic complications in 2008 when he was only eight. :( I think he had only three, maybe four, crops?

No, I don't believe he did. Of his 7 G1SWs, two died young, Awe Inspiring (age 7) and Thirty Six Red (age 10), Dramatic Gold was a gelding and Dr Root didn't sire a Stakes winner and the other 3 were fillies. He has three sons at stud but none appear to be very good sires. Slew O'Gold was a fantastic sire until he contracted EPM. I've always been fascinated by if the EPM caused it or there were other reasons. He had 12% SWs out of his first 2 crops, including 6 G1SWs. After that, he dropped to 5% and one G1SW in all his remaining crops.

He has the one at WinStar, Maimonides, but he doesn't look very promising. He has 6 others at stud, including a couple in foreign countries.

I am hoping for success as a broodmare sire.

See, this is why this rang a bell- when I was thinking about Vindication. Noble Sound never showed his full potential on the track, he broke his ankle after his third start- undefeated. Going to have to dig around a bit to see how they are doing. Vindication may indeed make a very good broodie sire- sometimes it skips a generation.
