Dabirsim is beautiful and has a really nice pedigree. I like seeing top broodmares in a sire's pedigree. Dabirsim has Crimson Saint, dam of his maternal grandsire, Royal Academy. Crimson Saint also produced the great Terlingua, who produced Storm Cat. Terlingua's full brother was the major stakes winner Pancho Villa.

Does anyone have any pick of the Citation winner Silentio (Silent Name)?

I wonder which mare will be next. :)
Maruka Candy(JPN), 1996M. Sunday Silence(USA) x Gina Romantica(USA), became the 23rd daughter of Sunday Silence to produce a G1 winner today.

Belshazzar(JPN), 2008H. King Kamehameha(JPN) x Maruka Candy(JPN), won the G1 Japan Cup Dirt 1800m at Hanshin on Dec 1st 2013.

Belshazzar was third to Orfevre in the 2011 Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby, G1, 2,400m turf). And after a prolonged break of over 14 months due to a bone fracture, he was switched to dirt from this year.

Stay Gold(JPN) sired another G1 winner when Red Reveur(JPN) kept her perfect record 3 for 3 intact when holding back race favoire Harp Star by a nose in the G1 Hanshin Juvenile Fillies 1600m turf at Hanshin on Dec 8th.
That was indeed a thrilling three-way battle between the granddaughters of Sunday Silence!!!!

1st. (#8) Red Reveur(JPN) F2 Stay Gold(JPN) x Desaucered(USA) by Dixieland Band(USA)
2nd. (#10) Harp Star(JPN) F2 Deep Impact(JPN) x Historic Star(JPN) by Falbrav(IRE)
3rd. (#6) Forevermore(JPN) F2 Neo Universe(JPN) x Eternal Beat(USA) by Pentelicus(USA)

Red Reveur is a very light filly.
But, like her sire's baby, she can handle the firm as well as the soft.
Harp Star has an amazing turn of foot.
We look forward to seeing their sophomore campaigns next year!

Tachyon, thank you so much for continuing to keep us informed about Sunday's descendants. Sunday was such a great favorite of mine. Because he was based in Southern California, I saw him race often. It was heartbreaking when he was sold to Japan, but the Japanese appreciated him and now Sunday has left a remarkable legacy.

Laminitis took his life, as well as the life of my beloved Secretariat and far too many others. I'm grateful treatment for laminitis has improved enough that it's no longer a death sentence in some cases, such as Paynter and, so far, St. Nicholas Abbey.

This is good. I'm glad to see the great horse's sons getting a chance in Europe. I'd like to see more come home to Kentucky.

The photos of Stay Gold and Maruka Candy -- holy, wow. Am I the only one who just realized how much Sunday stamped his foals? They looks amazing...and so much like papa.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

Sunday Silence was loved by everyone! :D
Japanese racing largely owes what it is now to Sunday Silence.
And it's a lot of fun to follow his achievements as a stallion and his offspring worldwide.
One may realize that Sunday Silence is still on the way up. :D

This is Orfevre, the Triple Crown winner 2011 and the greatest grandson of Sunday Silence ever trained.
The highest-rated son of Stay Gold arrived at Shadai Stallion statiton on Dec 25th. (No surprise -- he is already ''book full'')

All set for his second career at stud, let's never forget the racehorse. A superstar of the international circuit. A classy and unpredictable monster who lit up the stage for three full seasons, supported by connections who were never afraid to take on the best. He went to France and almost conquered and on his final start he showed his true worth.

He was a headcase and a livewire, but what a talent. Ladies and gentlemen, Orfevre.

Orfevre is a beautiful horse, and that cat in the one photo is hilariously plump. From what you posted, it seems that Halo's fiery temperament is showing up in his great-grandson. Seems to me most alpha males in any species have some fire in them or they wouldn't be alpha males. :D

That pick (with that cat) is very popular in Japan, too. :lol:
Talk about a healing power. :D

Lovely colt. I wish I understood Japanese to know what the gentlemen are saying in the video, but it was a treat to see the colt. Is he a full brother to Orfevre?

Japanese must be a very strange language for Westerners.
But I wonder if there were two Japanese words that could be easy to catch in the early part of that video. ;)
Shigeyuki Okada (taller gentleman, who had introduced I'll Have Another to Big Red Farm) repeated two words;

''Sokkuri'' means ''look-alike (to someone)''
''Kampeki'' means ''perfect''

I wouldn't try to translate their conversation this time.
But, yes, he is a full brother to Orfevre. 8-)
