RSS Feeds Wednesday, January 18, 2017
Darby Dan Farm’s Sky Kingdom, the multiple graded stakes-winning and track record-setting son of Empire Maker, sired his first reported foal late Saturday, Jan 14th when a filly was born at Ann Marie Farm in Paris, KY.

Bred by Ron Patterson, the filly is out of the Danzig mare Bushra, a full sister to multiple Graded stakes winner Lech and half-sister to Graded stakes winner Savina.

On the track, Sky Kingdom was a multiple Graded stakes winner at Santa Anita, Grade 1 placed at Hollywood Park, and a stakes-winning track record-holder at Los Alamitos during his career for trainer Bob Baffert. He is out of the Kingmambo mare Sky Beam, a full sister to Grade 1-placed stakes winner Mambo in Seattle. Sky Kingdom’s third dam is former Broodmare of the Year and blue hen Weekend Surprise, the dam of A.P. Indy and Summer Squall.

Sky Kingdom is set to stand his second season at Darby Dan for a fee of $5,000 stands and nurses. For more information about Sky Kingdom, please contact Ryan Norton at (859) 254-0424 or, or visit
