Pure Quality - Pure Value

A Graded stakes winner by Storm Cat out of Champion and eight-time G1 winner Heavenly Prize, Pure Prize is a gift that keeps on giving.

Bred by the famed Phipps family, Pure Prize was third leading freshman sire his inaugural season (to Street Cry), and has ranked among the leading general sires every year since. He is an especially reliable source for fast, early two-year-olds, and has been Storm Cat's leading active juvenile sire for the past two seasons. His career highlights include:

  • 55 stakes winners, 127 stakes horses worldwide
  • 11 Group/Grade 1 winners - 20 G1 wins
  • $38,600,000 in progeny earnings
  • Improving mares 25% over other stallions - 1.61 AEI vs. 1.29 CI
  • 24 stakes horses in 2012 - 27 in 2011
  • 28 stakes horses in 2013: 16 Northern Hem., 12 Southern Hem.
    9 stakes winners - 4 GSWs worldwide

Pure Prize's commercial appeal hit the stratosphere in 2012, when his daughter Pure Clan sold at Keeneland November for $4,500,000. Over the past two years, his two-year-olds in training are averaging ten times the stud fee, led by the #1 filly at the 2013 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May Sale ($240,000).

Pure Prize had his best siring years the past two seasons, with combined progeny earnings of just under $10,000,000, and 14 stakes winners and 11 stakes winners per year. In 2013, he already has 100 winners and earners of $3,800,000. Bill Oppenheim singled him out during this span as one of Kentucky's Value Sires.

“I’ve long been a fan.”—Bill Oppenheim
