The Influence of SUNDAY SILENCE Continues...

This year’s Dubai World Cup day was dominated by Japanese horses who won five races and placed in several others. A large part of that success was due to the influence of Stone Farm’s SUNDAY SILENCE.  The Kentucky-bred and 1989 Horse of the Year appeared in the pedigree of FOUR of the five Japanese-breds, including UAE Derby winner CROWN PRIDE, a great grandson of SUNDAY SILENCE.

Winner of the Kentucky Derby-G1, Preakness S.-G1, and Breeders’ Cup Classic-G1 during his championship season, SUNDAY SILENCE was raised, sold and raced by Stone Farm and was a product of Stone Farm stallion two-time leading sire HALO.  Sold to Japan for stud duty at the end of his illustrious career, SUNDAY SILENCE became the greatest sire in the history of Japanese breeding.

Here’s Frank Mitchell’s pedigree analysis of from World Cup day, which appeared in the Paulick Report:
