First Mare Confirmed in-foal to Sun King
RSS Feeds Monday, February 25, 2008

Aunt Mottz, dam of GII placed Ten Cents a Shine, has been confirmed as the first mare in-foal to multi-millionaire Sun King.  Although his first book is quickly filling, a few spots remain in his 2008 book.

A $400,000 Keeneland January yearling, Sun King competed at the highest levels throughout his four years of racing for owner Tracy Farmer and trainer Nick Zito. In just his third and fourth starts, he placed in the GI Champagne Stakes and GI Bessemer Trust Breeders' Cup Juvenile. Sun King placed in six additional GI stakes, including the 2007 Woodward Stakes to Lawyer Ron at Saratoga. In last year's GI Whitney Handicap Sun King finished a breathtaking second to eventual Horse of the Year, Invasor.

 

Sun King captured the GII Commonwealth Breeders' Cup Stakes at Keeneland and the GII Pennsylvania Derby, showing versatility by winning at distances from 7 furlongs to 1 1/8 miles. He won or placed in 17 of 27 races and earned $2,197,018. Sun King will not be syndicated and will remain the property of Tracy Farmer.
