Leading sire Cee's Tizzy has company in the millionaire club by 2001 progeny earnings. Maria's Mon, whose son Monarchos earned $600,000 in winning the March 10 Florida Derby (gr. I) at Gulfstream Park, increased his yearly earnings to $1,060,461 and in the process zoomed from 39th to second on the sire's list. Champion 2-year-old male in 1995, Maria's Mon (Wavering Monarch -- Carlotta Maria, by Caro) stands at Josephine Abercrombie's Pin Oak Stud near Versailles, Ky.
An equally impressive move on the list was posted by Quiet American, who moved to fourth after not even being ranked among the top 70 stallions from the previous week. Like Maria's Mon, Quiet American came through with a big victory by one of his 3-year-olds, when his son, Fifty Stars, captured the Louisiana Derby (gr. II) the day after the Florida equivalent. Quiet American (Fappiano -- Demure, by Dr. Fager) has progeny earnings of $876,318. He stands at Sheikh Maktoum's Gainsborough Farm near Versailles.
Getting back to Cee's Tizzy, his 2001 progeny earnings are $1,288,451. Sire of this year's Santa Anita Handicap (gr. I) winner Tiznow, Cee's Tizzy (Relaunch--Tizly, by Lyphard) stands at John C. Harris' Harris Farms near Coalinga, Calif.
Broad Brush, who ranks third on this year's list, is represented by the earners of $931,954. Broad Brush (Ack Ack -- Hay Patcher, by Hoist the Flag) is the sire of four 2001 stakes winners who have captured six added-money races. He stands at Graham J. Beck's Gainesway Farm near Lexington.
Gilded Time, who ranked atop the sire list earlier this year, currently ranks fifth. His runners have earned $854,842, and include four stakes winners, two of which are graded. Gilded Time (Timeless Moment -- Gilded Lilly, by What a Pleasure) stands at Vinery Kentucky near Lexington.
Mt. Livermore, who ranks sixth on the sire list, with $808,460 also came through with a big 3-year-old winner. His son, Hoovergetthekeys, won the March 10 El Camino Real Derby (gr. III). Mt. Livermore (Blushing Groom--Flama Ardiente, by Crimson Satan) stands at Graham J. Beck's Gainesway Farm near Lexington.
