ON SALE 9.99

Yes It's True exploded on the national scene, as a runner, as a sire of sales horses, and as a 2004 Freshman Sire. Through October, the millionaire Grade I winner had five stakes horses, four stakes winners, two Graded stakes winners, was routinely siring six-figure sales offerings, and reigned as America's Leading Freshman Sire.

On the racetrack, Yes It's True possessed breathtaking gate-to-wire speed, which took him to 10 stakes victories in 22 starts. He won five of his first six starts at two, setting or equaling tracks records in two stakes and winning two other Graded stakes on both coasts. At three, he won six of his first eight starts, all graded stakes at different tracks, including the Frank De Francis Memorial-G1.

As a sire, word spread rapidly that his sales offerings looked the part, and 15 individuals brought at least $100,000 before his first juvenile lined up for a race. Included in that group were a $525,000 Fasig-Tipton Calder two-year-old and $450,000 OBS March two-year-old. In April, Yes It's True sired his first winner, who came within 2/5 of the Hollywood track record. By the third week of May he sired his first stakes winner and has never looked back.

By the end of May, he sired two new 14+ length winners, and in June, got two more stakes victories. July brought two more impressive winners, his first Graded stakes winner, and a $128,333 average for his Fasig-Tipton Kentucky yearlings.

In August at Saratoga, he debuted a real head turner, Proud Accolade, who would run the second fastest Beyer for any 2-year-old at the meeting in breaking his maiden by 7 1/2. Proud Accolade would win his next Saratoga outing by 5 1/2 before taking the $500,000 Champagne S.-G1 in the fall at Belmont.

Through the last week of October, Yes It's True had sired 13 winners, seven debut winners and five stakes winners, for first crop earnings in excess of $1,200,000.

Yes It's True has been booked full every year at stud, and has a strong contingent already on the ground and in the pipeline. Pedigree-wise, he is a Bold Ruler stallion through Raja Baba and is entirely free of Northern Dancer, Mr Prospector, Seattle Slew, Secretariat, In Reality, Roberto, Ribot, and Damascus.

A sound, fast millionaire, and the Leading Freshman Sire of 2004. Yes It's True stands his first season at Three Chimneys in 2005.
