Empire Maker - Untouched Talent,
by
Storm Cat, 2009 Bay

Brilliant By Design

Millionaire Grade 1 winner Bodemeister has the brilliance, beauty, and bloodlines to become the industry's next Big Sire.

The dual Classic runner-up competed at the highest levels from coast-to-coast, becoming one of the rare runners in history to post three Triple Digit Beyers around two turns prior to the Kentucky Derby [G1]. Then, from his first-crop of 3-year-olds, he sired a Kentucky Derby [G1] winner, Always Dreaming.

We promised, he delivered.
