Walmac Kentucky Renews TrueNicks Subscription

Walmac Farm in Kentucky will once again sponsor complimentary TrueNicks on all of their stallions for the 2010 season.

Despite a crop of only 43 foals conceived when standing in Florida, Successful Appeal (TrueNicks,SRO) was the leading first crop sire of 2004, with progeny earnings of over $1.7 million. Nine stakes winners (21%) eventually emerged from that first crop and he's maintained a very healthy 9% career stakes winners from foals.

Songandaprayer (TrueNicks,SRO) ranked as the #4 first crop stallion in 2005 and was the leading sire of individual juvenile winners last year. The four-year-old multiple stakes-winning sprinter Go Go Shoot is among his stakes winners in 2009.
The unbeaten Hennessy son Cactus Ridge (TrueNicks,SRO) has quietly sired some very good runners. He ranks 11th on the third crop sire chart with 2009 runners like multiple graded winner Hot Cha Cha and juvenile stakes winner Well Deserved.

Tenpins (TrueNicks,SRO) was one of the first Smart Strike sons to stud and he could be poised for a breakout in the near term. He has 11 stakes horses so far in his first two crops (7% from foals), including four from his 2009 juveniles.

The Walmac Kentucky roster is completed by several promising young stallions whose first runners will hit the races in the coming years. Bandini (TrueNicks,SRO) will be up first with his runners set to debut next spring. He's a grade I winner by Fusaichi Pegasus from the female family of Stormy Atlantic, Sadler's Wells and Nureyev. Hat Trick (JPN) (TrueNicks,SRO) is the only champion son of the great Sunday Silence standing in North America. His runners hit the races in 2012. Ready's Image (TrueNicks,SRO) and Salute the Sarge (TrueNicks,SRO) retired into the Walmac stud barn last year. The More Than Ready son Ready's Image won a pair of East Coast juvenile stakes in the summer of 2007 while Salute the Sarge was winning a pair of graded events on the West Coast. Both came back to win stakes as sophomores.
