The leading sire by average at the 2020 yearling sales. No stallion can match his 20 million-dollar yearlings since 2016. The all-time leading sire of Black Type winners at Saratoga and the all-time leading sire of G1 winners at Del Mar. Seven American G1 winners in a single year — only Mr. Prospector has done the same. Current three-year-olds include G3 Withers winner Risk Taking, G3 Las Virgenes winner Moonlight d'Oro, and TDN Rising Star Prevalence, an eye-popping 8-length debut winner at Gulfstream. His latest star is Hong Kong-based three-time G1 winner Golden Sixty, rated 129 on Timeform.
