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!

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.


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

Teruya Yoshida (Shadai Farm) and Shigeyuki Okada (Big Red Farm) have visited Oriental Art 2012 colt.
He looks just like his brother Orfevre !!

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-)
