Written by firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 16, 2009 |
Pulpit (TrueNicks,SRO) hails from A. P. Indy's first crop and has helped his sire achieve the coveted title of ‘sire of sires'. He's in the midst of another strong season with runners like Darley Debutante (gr. I) winner Mi Sueno and Forego S. (gr. I) winner Pyro. Among Pulpit's other grade I winners are the top young sires Sky Mesa and Tapit.
Stroll (TrueNicks,SRO) is yet another grade I winner by Pulpit and he stands along side his sire at Claiborne. From his first crop of only 39 foals he's sired five stakes winners (13%) including Van Lear Rose, who earned a Sovereign Award as last year's champion 2yo filly in Canada, and the 2009 graded winner Afternoon Stroll.
Ghost Fleet, a juvenile colt by Arch (TrueNicks,SRO), is a Sovereign Award contender this year after a pair of important stakes wins at Woodbine. He is one of 26 lifetime stakes winners for the son of Kris S.
The A. P. Indy son Flatter (TrueNicks,SRO) ranks among the top 15 third crop sires in 2009 and has five stakes winners to his credit this year.
Eddington (TrueNicks,SRO) is a grade I winner by Unbridled. He already has nine winners including a pair of stakes runners in his first crop of juveniles, who only figure to get better with age.
The Claiborne roster on TrueNicks is rounded out by some promising young stallions with their first crops set to run in the coming years. Giant's Causeway's first group I winning sons are doing well in Europe in 2009 and next year we'll see runners by First Samurai (TrueNicks,SRO), his first grade I winner on dirt. War Front (TrueNicks,SRO), one of the last graded winners by the great Claiborne stallion Danzig, will also see his runners debut next spring. Political Force (TrueNicks,SRO) is a grade I winner by Unbridled's Song out of grade I winner Glitter Woman with first weanlings this year. Horse Greeley (TrueNicks,SRO), winner of the Del Mar Futurity (gr. II) over two eventual grade I winners, will stand his second season in 2010.
