Sun King, a multimillionaire and four-time graded stakes winner, sired his first winner on May 22, when a 2-year-old colt named Legalis won at Premio Meltrasio racetrack in Milan, Italy.

Out of the stakes-producing Time for a Change mare Eh La Bas Chere, Legalis proved best in six-furlong contest on turf, moving his earnings to $20,500. He had run second in his debut in Rome only seven days prior. The colt was bred in Kentucky by Fair Winds Farm.

Sun King was an eight-time Grade 1 performer and earner of over $2.2 million. His biggest career wins came in the Pennsylvania Derby (G2) and Tampa Bay Derby (G3) at three and Commonwealth Breeders' Cup (G2) at four. Sun King placed in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1), Champagne (G1), Met Mile (G1), Haskell Invitational (G1) and Woodward (G1) for owner Tracy Farmer and trainer Nick Zito.

By Charismatic out of the Clever Trick mare Clever But Costly, Sun King stands at John Phillips' Darby Dan Farm in Lexington for a fee of $10,000 live foal.
