First Defence (TrueNicks,SRO) and Mizzen Mast (TrueNicks,SRO) will once again be available to
breeders for the 2010 season courtesy of Juddmonte Farm.
Multiple grade I winner and multiple classic-placed Aptitude carried the
Juddmonte colors with distinction in his racing days. He's distinguished
himself as a sire as well with the likes of grade I winner Great Hunter from
his second crop, with this horse being bred on the prolific AP Indy /
Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner Empire Maker is living up to his lofty
expectations at stud. The son of Unbridled and the great mare Toussaud is
America's #1 third crop sire. Among his 2009 stakes winners are Santa Anita
Derby (gr. I) winner Pioneeorof the Nile and Icon Project, the runaway
winner of the Personal Ensign S. (gr. I).
Close relation to the aforementioned Empire Maker, First Defence will stand
his second season in 2010. He too has all the ingredients of an important
sire: by the leading sire Unbridled's Song, a grade I winner over sprint
distances, and out of a grade I-winning sister to Empire Maker and the much
missed Chester House.
Finally, Mizzen Mast has established himself as a source of high class
international performers. He has a grade I winner in each of his first two
crops and has sired stakes winners on three continents. This Grey Sovereign
line stallion was effective on both turf and dirt as a runner and his own
progeny are showing the same adaptability.
