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]. And his first foals are now coveted by a wide array of international buyers.
