Bargain “Breed to Race” and “Make Your Mare” Stallions for 2023
Mucho Macho Man, Lookin at Lucky, and Paynter are at the top of my list in the categories above. Below are explanations why for MMM and L at L. Contact me for preferred pricing for the your mare.
Mucho Macho Man
He raced (an unusually long) 5 years for two reasons. 1) He was so good that he averaged winning over $225,000 a start for his owners over his 25 starts, 2) With Macho Uno the sire and Ponche the grandsire, his pedigree was initially considered mediocre when retired to stud. Those facts meant that the $1million+ he made each racing year was more than the owners could expect from a year in the breeding shed, so why retire him?
But those supposed negatives have been disproved by what MMM’s runners have done on the track. From the start this handsome, correct, 17-hand colt with the amazing stride had a physical that would help more mares than many top stallions. And within three years after he went to stud the pedigree improved significantly: He had two new sibling SWS, including G2 SW Marconi.
Most importantly, runners by MMM reflect MMM’s own stellar race record. He’s generated an AEI of 1.62 as of Feb. 2023 from mares with comparable indexes (CIs) of 1.08, and has an impressive 4.8% SWs from runners 3 yo and up as of the end of 2022 from those 1.08 CI mares. And, he throws the big horse, as G1 winners Mucho Gusto and Mucho Unusual, and recent G2 winner City Man prove.
Lookin At Lucky
Lookin At Lucky is slightly more complicated to evaluate than Mucho Macho Man and Paynter because he throws average lookers and he himself isn’t as straight as you’d like up front. But his front end has not hurt his statistics, as he has produced an above-average 15% 2yo winners, an above-average percentage of overall winners, and a very good 4.4% SWs from 3yos and up through year-end 2022.
Surprisingly, given his excellent percentage of 2yo winners, his runners’ average win distance is a classic 7.5 furlongs. But where L at L has excelled is in producing 2.3% GSWs from 3yos and up, including G1 standouts Accelerate and Country House. Compare this to top stallions Flatter (2.0%), Liam’s Map (2.2%), Nyquist (2.3%), and Twirling Candy (2.4%).
I’ll be surprised if you can beat the prices I can get for your mare for MMM and L at L seasons. Email me at email@example.com or call at 502 780-9934.
