The colt does look a lot like Orfevre, but he seems to have a little more bling on him, lol.

That's probably the way Shigeyuki Okada was very impressed by the colt. :D :lol:

As much as I love Orfevre as a racehorse, he does have a big ol' head on him. :lol:
Between the two brothers, I have to say Oriental Art is prettier.

You can definitely see the resemblance between those three brothers, but there are some differences in their conformation. Of the three, I like Deep Impact's conformation the best.

I hope so too, and also hope he goes on to a very good stud career here in the U.S. I long for a top stallion from Sunday's line to stand here.

It is such a lovely video. I have the same reaction as over on the foals thread. This was so soothing to see after coming home from work. I watched it on my phone at lunchtime, but nothing beats seeing it on a large screen. Nothing except actually being there, lol.

The condescending look on Orfevre's face when the man clucks to him is priceless.

Wow, that's an impressive list of champions. I believe 26 is the same number of champions Northern Dancer sired. Once again I can only sigh at the loss to U.S. breeding when Sunday was sold to Japan, but am happy that he was able to make such a great contribution to breeding in Japan.

Oh, thank you!
I didn't know that.

I for one believe that Sunday Silence can be rated on par with (or even higher than) any other most prominent sire-lines in the world of our time.
But I understand and strongly hope that the Yoshida brothers will work harder to make Sunday Silence more international and really proud --- for ''the best interest'' of the great stallion.
How wonderful it would be if Deep Impact, Daiwa Major and Zenno Rob Roy stood in North-America, Stay Gold, Orfevre and Neo Universe in Europe, for example?
