Trio of Sun King yearlings in FT July Sale
RSS Feeds Monday, June 07, 2010
Three yearlings from the first crop of Darby Dan sire Sun King are slated for the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July yearling sale. The two-day sale runs July 13-14 at the company's Lexington headquarters. All three of Sun King's yearlings will sell on Day 1 of the sale.

A multiple Grade 2 winner and earner of $2,240,008, Sun King entered stud at Darby Dan in 2008. With his consistency and durability on the racetrack, Sun King was a big hit with breeders upon his retirement. His book was full in both 2008 and 2009, with 131 and 145 mares bred in his first two seasons, respectively.

At Fasig-Tipton, the first horse led into the ring will be a Sun King filly out of the winning mare Aerobatics. She is the dam of Grade 3 winner Smooth Maneuvers and the stakes-placed Brick by Brick.

Hip No. 49 is also a filly, out of the unraced Dehere mare Happy Scene. She is the dam of five-time winner Scherzi. Happy Scene is out of Really Happy, winner of the Bay Meadows Oaks (G3) and placed in four other graded stakes. The extended family includes millionaire Event of the Year.

The final Sun King offering is Hip No. 101, a colt consigned by Darby Dan, agent. Named Thesunshinesbright, the dark bay or brown colt is out of the French stakes winner Reine Maid. She has already produced seven winners from eight runners, including the Italian Group stakes-placed filly Regina Saura.
