Seven G1 winners in 2017 - more than any other American stallion since Storm Cat in 1999 - including the brilliant dual Eclipse Champion Songbird, two-year-old colt Bolt d'Oro, three-year-old fillies New Money Honey and Elate, and turf mare Dickinson, plus two Breeders' Cup winners: Talismanic in the Turf and Bar of Gold in the Filly & Mare Sprint. Eight million-dollar yearlings in 2018 – more than any other sire. The only American stallions to have more in a single year are Northern Dancer and Storm Cat.
