Empire Maker x Sis City ’18 colt
You might want to sit down in case you start to feel faint: here is an incredible colt by Classic sire and sire of sires EMPIRE MAKER and out of a GRADED STAKES WINNING MARE who has PRODUCED A GRADED STAKES WINNER. No, that’s not a typo! First, on the sire side, someone who needs no introduction: EMPIRE MAKER’s impact on the American Thoroughbred continues to rise as both an elite classic sire and a proven sire of sires. As the best son of sire of sires UNBRIDLED and most productive classic sire at stud from MR. PROSPECTOR’s best classic-producing line, EMPIRE MAKER is responsible for 11 Grade 1 winners to date and has sired standout runners such as three-time Eclipse Award champion ROYAL DELTA and classic-placed colts BODEMEISTER (sire of 2017 Kentucky Derby winner ALWAYS DREAMING) and PIONEER OF THE NILE(sire of 2015 Triple Crown winner AMERICAN PHAROAH). And his popularity is unwavering as 2019 EMPIRE MAKER yearlings continue to command as much as $2 million at the sales this year. And now for the dam side: this colt is out of the sensational G1-winning mare SIS CITY (by SLEW CITY SLEW), who won or placed in 4 Graded stakes from Keeneland and Saratoga to Belmont, Monmouth, and Gulfstream on her way to earning $800k. Upon retirement from the racetrack, she wasted no time passing on her talents by producing nothing less than another Graded stakes winner in SECOND CITY, who also ran in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile and earned $500k. And she’s not done yet: SIS CITY currently has a 3-year-old filly in the queue by MORE THAN READY who sold at Tattersalls last year for more than $750k, and she also has a now 2-year-old full sibling to SECOND CITY (by DISTORTED HUMOR) coming for her. Brace yourselves, this is gonna get exciting!
