WHY BREED TO SUN KING?
RSS Feeds Tuesday, January 01, 2008

Darby Dan understands how competitive the marketplace is for quality mares - even for a first year stallion.  Therefore, in conjunction with Tracy Farmer, we are offering the following incentives for Sun King:

Complementary season will be provided to mares which are either graded stakes winners or have produced a graded stakes winner.

"See the Sun - Get Some Sun" - We believe that anyone who sees Sun King in person will be truly inspired.  Therefore, anyone who inspects Sun King before February 15th will be entered to win a 7 day cruise for 2 to the Caribbean (~$2,500 value).

The breeder of Sun King's first graded stakes winner will receive a "sunny ride" in the way of a Toyota Solara covertible. 

The breeder of the highest priced weanling and yearling will receive a complementary season to Sun King the following year.

The breeder of any first crop 2 yr old winner for Sun King will receive a complementary season the following year.

And - if that was not enough, Tracy Farmer has announced that not only will he be supporting Sun King from his own broodmare band, but he will also be "first in line to buy his best at the sales".

As Nick Zito commented, "Sun King was pure class and the most durable racehorse I have ever trained - if he can't sire a good horse, who can?
