Two-time champion Silverbulletday, whose quest to become the all-time leading earner among females ended with her retirement ended earlier this week, has settled in to her new home at John Sikura's Hill 'n' Dale Farm near Lexington, Ky.

Pegram said no decision has been made on a mating for Silverbulletday, whom he purchased for $155,000 at the 1997 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July yearling sale.
Silverbulletday won 15 of her 23 starts, but had only one victory in five starts this year. She retired with earnings of $3,093,207. Serena's Song holds the distaffer earnings record with $3,283,388. She won Eclipse Awards as champion 2-year-old and 3-year-old filly.
