Another bonus about Karak is that she defeated colts, which I enjoy seeing. Not that it should be a big deal, but people in the U.S. still have irrational hang-ups about putting fillies in open races.

I wonder if the new Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint will be a goal for Karak?

Thank you!
Sunday Silence's youngest daughters are already 16 years old now.
It's amazing that he still remains the champion broodmare sire both internationally and domestically. 8-)

And I've just learned how this international ranking has been generated by BH, too.
For stallions whose daughters are represented by at least one runner in 2019 regardless of the stallion's origin or the country in which he stands or stood. Listed below are all available statistics for the Northern Hemisphere through September 23, 2019 As supplied to The Blood-Horse by The Jockey Club Information Systems, Inc., earnings include adjusted money from Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Adjusted earnings are put on par with average North American earnings from the previous year. For example, the average North American purse in 2017 is $22,593 or 47% of the 2017 average purse in Japan. To put earnings on par, all Japanese progeny earnings are multiplied by 47% before being credited to a sire's progeny earnings. Hong Kong earnings are adjusted by 15%; Singapore by 68%. Current year stakes winners include all Northern Hemisphere black-type stakes results from all available countries. *Cumulative foal counts include Southern Hemisphere. Cumulative black-type stakes winners includes all countries; some additional foreign foals may be included in the foal count.
And here's the broodmare sire ranking in Japan (as of Sep 22nd 2019).

It is rather tragic. I wonder if any of his siblings are even half as handsome as he is.

A sharp debut. Not surprised to see the Niarchos silks; they were a big supporter of Sunday Silence blood way before the rest of Europe caught on.

I've been a fan of Mer De Glace since I've seen him win his first G3 in Japan. He is so beautiful, dark with a big blaze and very talented too! I'm very happy to see him win his first G1 :D
