The 11 top stallions from last week's 2001 leading sires list continue to hold down the fort. Cee's Tizzy, with $1,324,440, and Maria's Mon, with $1,160,703, remain one-two, and Allen's Prospect continues to hold down the ninth spot. The other seven just switched positions.
Thunder Gulch registered the biggest jump among the group. He moved up from eighth to fifth, largely through the $150,000 earned by his 3-year-old son Point Given in winning the March 17 San Felipe Stakes (gr. II) at Santa Anita. It was Point Given's first start since taking the Hollywood Futurity (gr. I) in December.
Thunder Gulch's runners have earned $965,122, and include additional 2001 grade II winner Spain. Thunder Gulch (Gulch -- Line of Thunder, by Storm Bird) stands at Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky.
Gilded Time moved from fifth to third. His 3-year-old daughter, Mandy's Gold, won the March 16 Dame Mysterieuse Stakes at Gulfstream to remain unbeaten in four starts. Gilded Time (Timeless Moment -- Gilded Lilly, by What a Pleasure) has progeny earnings of $975,796. He stands at Vinery Kentucky near Lexington.
Getting back to the top two, Cee's Tizzy (Relaunch--Tizly, by Lyphard) stands at John C. Harris' Harris Farms near Coalinga, Calif., and Maria's Mon (Wavering Monarch -- Carlotta Maria, by Caro) stands at Pin Oak Stud near Versailles. Allen's Prospect (Mr. Prospector -- Change Water, by Swaps) stands at Country Life Farm near Bel Air, Md. He ranks first nationally by number of runners, with 126, and by winners, with 35.
