San Vicente (gr. II) winner and grade I-placed sprinter Early Flyer (TrueNicks,SRO) has led the first, second, and third crop Southwest sire lists over the last three seasons. A son of champion two-year-old Gilded Time, he is a half brother to grade II winner Fun House, the dam of Paddy O'Prado. The family also includes grade I winners Olympio, Pyro, and Cuvee. Early Flyer has sired 13 stakes horses, including Texas champion Formal Flyer, and his progeny earnings exceed $2.5 million to date. Early Flyer stands for a fee of $2,500.

Louisiana Derby (gr. II) winner Wimbledon (TrueNicks,SRO) was the leading freshman Southwest sire of 2009. By Met Mile (gr. I) winner Wild Rush, Wimbledon comes from a speedy family that includes graded stakes winner Mining Burrah. Wimbledon has sired six stakes horses, including stakes winners Chicks a Flyin and Daphne Angela. He stands for a $1,750 fee.

Magic Cat (TrueNicks,SRO), by Storm Cat, is the sire of Texas champion and Horse of the Year Stealth Cat, Texas champion two-year-old Final Trick, and nine other stakes winners. Produced from the graded stakes-winning Fappiano mare With a Twist, Magic Cat is a half brother to Spanish grade I winner Policy Matter and traces in tail female to blue hen mare Boudoir. Magic Cat boasts progeny earnings of over $4.5 million. He stands for a $1,250 fee.

Unbridled's Song son My Golden Song (TrueNicks,SRO) was a three-length debut winner at Belmont and went on to place in the Holy Bull Stakes (gr. III) behind Barbaro. Produced from the multiple stakes-winning mare Golden Par, My Golden Song is a half brother to five other winners and hails from the family of Bernardini. Standing for a $1,750 fee, My Golden Song's first crop includes 38 yearlings of 2010.

Silver City (TrueNicks), also by top stallion Unbridled's Song, will stand his first season at stud in 2011. A brilliantly fast colt, Silver City won the 5.5-furlong Dixieland Stakes and nearly carried his speed to one mile when second to Old Fashioned in the grade III Southwest Stakes. Silver City is out of the stakes-placed Mt. Livermore mare Proposal, a full sister to graded stakes-winning sprinter Multiple Choice. This is the family of Ashland (gr. I) winner Well Chosen and her son, Sword Dancer (gr. I) winner Telling. Silver City will stand for a fee of $2,000.

The very intriguing Jet Phone (TrueNicks) offers an unbeatable statistic: 100% stakes winners from foals. His only foal of racing age, Aces N Kings, was profiled this summer in a blog by Jason Shandler. Aces N Kings won his first five starts, including the TTA Sales Futurity at 5 furlongs, the Minstrel Stakes at 5 furlongs, and the Sunny's Halo Stakes at one mile. Perhaps his most impressive performance came in a narrow loss in last month's Sunday Silence Stakes, where Aces N Kings fought back after seemingly out of contention in the stretch to miss by a nose—click here for video. Aces N Kings is pointing to the $1,000,000 Delta Downs Jackpot Stakes (gr. III) on Nov. 20.

Jet Phone is by Phone Trick out of an Alydar half sister to multiple Japanese champion Hishi Amazon. His second dam is English champion Katies, whose decendents include Japanese Horse of the Year Admire Moon. Jet Phone's fee is $1,500.
