Arguably one of the best-bred stallions available this season, Stay Hungry is by the legendary Somebeachsomewhere – the hottest sire line in harness racing today.
The top three stallions on the U.S. 2YO Leading Sires List are all sons of Somebeachsomewhere.
Stay Hungry is a striking dark bay stallion standing 15.3 hands with excellent conformation and fertility. He excelled on the racetrack, winning the $600,000 Breeders Crown at two and captured two legs of pacing's Triple Crown at three - the $334,00 Cane Pace and the $500,000 Messenger Stake. He retired to Hanover Shoe Farms with 12 wins and six placings from 25 lifetime starts, a 1:47.3 record and $1.3 million in earnings.
Stay Hungry's dam is the brilliant world champion My Little Dragon (1:48.1, $2.3 million).
She won two Breeders Crowns and was the U.S. 2YO Pacing Filly of the Year and the 2008 Older Pacing Mare of the Year.
The combined earnings of his sire and dam are over $5 million.
His first North American yearlings are selling in October and November this year and are an outstanding group of individuals. He sires lovely, strong, correct colts and fillies alike, with presence to spare. This is Stay Hungry’s second season in Australasia and his first foals will soon be gracing the paddocks.
Stay Hungry is available via frozen semen exclusively through Empire Stallions. In these uncertain times, frozen semen is a definite advantage. Once you book your mare in with Empire, the semen will be dispatched to the approved vet clinic/semen base performing your mare’s insemination. The semen will be there in the tank waiting for your mare to cycle. This allows the semen to be programmed to the mare’s cycle rather than trying to program the mare to fit in with the semen delivery schedule.
Also, Empire is the only farm in the southern hemisphere that gives you a full cash refund in lieu of a free return should your mare fail to deliver a live foal.
Stay Hungry represents incomparable value for breeders and we believe that he will continue to carry on the legacy of his esteemed sire. Please call +613 5796 2122 for further information or visit www.empirestallions.com.
