That's too bad; I thought he was a handsome horse, with a long career, whose A.P. Indy blood would be very good for a regional market.
I wonder if he has the temperament to find success in a 2nd job, while still staying intact. Just in case someone comes along with a cure for his 'never showed interest' issue? ;)

Per Diamond B Farm owner Glenn Brock, they could not get him to breed mares. He was checked by specialists but never showed interest. Has been retired to a friend's farm but I don't have any other info regarding a potential 2nd (not stud) career.

@BH_CNovak random, but do you have any info on Pants on Fire (the stallion, not the 3yo IRE filly). Retired, no covers... just gone?
He has 2 exports on file with the Jockey Club and only one return, doesn't that mean he is in another country?

I did some searching before I posted that but this is what I found(this was on Wikipedia, so idk but anyway it seems very strange):
"Pants On Fire did not breed any mares his first season, as he showed no interest in breeding. He was sent to Dubai for some time off, and will return when he begins to show interest in mares."

Dubai seems like an expensive and far away place to send a horse 'for time off'. That Wikipedia bit (taken with a huge grain of salt) sounds like the horse is there for some punishment/conversion therapy :roll:

Trojan Nation going to Wyoming makes sense. Perhaps they will turn him out with a herd of mixed mares. QH, Sport Horse, etc and let nature take it's course. If he breeds find, it not fine. Maybe he's just shy :oops:

He's got 2 exports, one return- He did run in Japan- so im assuming that is the first export and return.
Perhaps they can straighten him out- there was some success with War Emblem in Japan- not sure about Dubai

Looks like Henny Hughes went to the right place. Glad his stud career has found new life.

He is a bit butt high and a bit downhill but I think his swaying back makes it look worse than it is. If you take a straight line and draw it from the highest point of his withers horizontally, there's not that much of a difference.

Considering that Sunday died in 2002 at 15 years old by the calendar (16 by TB official birthdays), and he only sired 11 crops of foals, the fact that he's still such a tremendous influence is stunning.
