Sunday Silence Still Tops
Sunday Silence, who topped the Japanese leading sire list by progeny earnings from 1995 to 2000, is steam rolling toward another title. Through Sept. 30, his 2001 runners have earned $37 million compared to the $19.5 million earned by the progeny of runner-up Tony Bin. Equally impressive is that his runners have won 182 races. No other stallion even has topped the 100 mark. Sunday Silence (Halo--Wishing Well, by Understanding) is represented by 13 graded stakes winners this year. He stands at Shadai Stallion Station.
