WinStar Farm is still riding high after a Triple Crown win with Justify, but its stable of stallions are producing winners worldwide. With the September sales right around the corner, WinStar Farm stallions will once again try to prove themselves as champion studs.

Tiznow has been making waves this year producing winners in graded company and now has over 40 graded stakes winners to his credit. Red Ruby won the $300,000 G3 Delaware Oaks by 13 lengths Saturday, July 7. The three-year-old filly also won the Black-Eyed Susan at the Preakness and the Martha Washington Stakes at Oaklawn in February. “She is special,” said trainer Kellyn Gorder after the Delaware Oaks. “They don’t come around like this very often.” Tiz A Slam won the Dominion Day July 1 at Woodbine by a length-and-a-half. Tiznow is the only two-time winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic in history. Tiznow was voted Champion 3-year-old, and Horse of the Year. In his first year at stud, Tiznow was voted America’s Champion Freshman Sire.

More Than Ready has produced many winners in 2018. Funtastic won the United Nations G1, and Rushing Fall won the Appalachian Stakes G2 and placed at Edgewood G3. More than Ready also produced G3 winners Sir Troubadour, Catholic Boy, More Than Words and Eagle Way. More than ready has produced 86 graded winners to date. In his racing days, More Than Ready earned over $1,000,000 before retiring.

Pioneer of the Nile, most famous for siring Triple Crown winner American Pharaoh, has had another successful year. Not only has a pair of two-year-old progeny sold for more than $800,000, but they have also thrived on the racetrack with stakes winner DontmesswithJoanne. Pioneer of the Nile also sired G1 placed horse Mississippi and G2 placer Nero.
