Kingmambo and A.P. Indy, two stallions who stand at William Farish’s Lane’s End Farm, emerged on top of the list of leading sires of yearlings sold (minimum three sold) during the Sept. 9 second session of the Keeneland September yearling sale.

Kingmambo, an 18-year-old son of Mr. Prospector who stood for a $300,000 fee when the current yearling crop was conceived in 2006, was represented by three yearlings that averaged $875,000. He stood for a $250,000 fee in 2008.

A.P. Indy, the Lane’s End stallion who topped the list during the Sept. 8 first session, had 10 yearlings sell during the second day for an average price of $631,500. His yearlings included the session topper, a colt out of the Halo mare Taegu, with $300,000 the lowest amount paid for one of his yearlings during the session.

A.P. Indy, who stood for $300,000 in 2006, was also the leading sire of yearlings for the first two days of the sale, with 21 yearlings selling for a gross of $13,590,000, an average price of $647,142.

El Prado, who stands at Frank Stronach’s Adena Springs near Paris, Ky., was the third-leading sire during the second session, with three yearlings averaging $615,000, a healthy return on the 2006 fee of $125,000 for the 19-year-old son of Sadler’s Wells.

Fourth- and fifth-leading sires Sept. 9 were Storm Cat and Distorted Humor  . Storm Cat, the 25-year-old son of Storm Bird who stood at the Young family’s Overbrook Farm before being pensioned earlier this year, had nine yearlings average $568,889.

Distorted Humor, a 15-year-old son of Forty Niner who stood for a 2006 fee of $150,000 at Bill Casner and Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky., was represented by 11 yearlings that averaged $504,091.
