Chi Omega is by Tapit from the Seattle Slew sire line through A.P. Indy. Joyful Victory's maternal granddam was by Alydar.

Since we don't see Alydar too often in top pedigrees anymore, I think it's exciting to see him in the pedigrees of Orfevre's champion filly and the lovely new Chrome filly. Video of the Chrome filly: https://www.facebook.com/lisa.mathes.3/ ... 78888/?t=1
What a cute filly!!!
She wants to run. :D

I would say he is represented ok considering his sire line has pretty much died out in the US. He is represented by Arch(Blame, Uncle Mo), Hard Spun, Quality Road, etc. off the top of my head.

Then it always seems that any top runner from Courtly Dee's female line has Alydar in there.

Was Stella Madird(USA) (by Alydar) a popular mare in the USl?
Her contributions to breedings in Japan have been enormous.
Ten years ago, there was a poster whose namesake was Stella Madrid in this forum, as long as I remember.

It's a very sad day.... :cry:

Special Week(JPN) [1995H. Sunday Silence(USA) x Campaign Girl(JPN) by Maruzensky(JPN)], one of the best sons of Sunday Silence(USA), passed away at Hidaka Taiyo Bokujo where he had been pensioned on April 27th 2018.
The 4x G1 winner (Japanese Derby, Tenno Sho Spring, Tenno Sho Autumn and Japan Cup) sired the likes of Cesario(JPN), Buena Vista(JPN) and Toho Jackal(JPN) at stud.
He was such a popular horse.

I vaguely remember her. I'm sure she had her fans. I thought I remembered her from the book, "A Wild Ride" but that was her full sister Tis Juliet.

Both Tis Juliet and Stella Madrid were G1 winners in New York, right?
There were many Alydar mares that were imported to Japan in 90's.
One of Tis Juliet's daughters by Wild Again was imported to Japan, too.
Now I have already started to hope that Lucky Lilac will be sent to the states to visit one of the Calumet stallions some day.

I tried to find a photo of Stella Madrid(USA), but I couldn't.
She died in 2015.

But racing fans will continue to track her footsteps in her descendants.
Again, she becomes such an influential broodmare.

Of sidenote, Rainbow Line's victory put his sire Stay Gold(JPN) in a tie with Sunday Silence(USA) for the most wins in the G1 race with the longest-distance in Japan.
It does look like Stay Gold stamps himself as the best stamina source of the Sunday Silence silre line.

Ha, Tachyon you beat me to it I was about to post him in here! It seems the outcross of Galileo mares to Deep Impact is rewarding Coolmore handsomely.
