Father Patrick’s 2019 Book Full, Closed

Published: December 11, 2018 12:42 pm EST

Diamond Creek Farm is pleased to announce that standout first-crop sire Father Patrick is booked full and closed for 2019.

Father Patrick is currently the leading first-year sire in average earnings per foal, which ranks him in the top three among all sires. His impressive, yet limited, first crop included horses such as New Jersey and Kentucky Sire Stakes champion Whispering Oaks and Champlain Stakes winner Hudson River, among many other stakes winners.

His success continued to the yearling sales, where his first full crop of yearlings was well received. In Harrisburg, his highly anticipated yearlings averaged $119,000 and brought up to $300,000, which made him just one of two stallions to average over $100,000. In Lexington, Father Patrick’s yearlings averaged over $87,000, and on Day 1 alone, nine of his yearlings sold for over $100,000.

Final selections for Father Patrick's book will be made this week.
