Diamond Creek has announced today that Father Patrick‘s book for 2020 is full and closed.
Father Patrick had an incredibly successful year both on the track and at the yearling sales.
Father Patrick is the sire of the potential 2- and 3-year-old trotting colts of the year, Breeders Crown champion Amigo Volo, and the recently retired millionaire Greenshoe.
Some 84 percent of his 2-year-olds are already starters, an impressive number for any stallion. Father Patrick is currently the leading sire of average earnings for 2-year-olds and is second in 3-year-old average earnings.
With Lexington and Harrisburg yearling averages both over $100,000, his yearlings were highly sought after. Maverick, the full brother to Greenshoe, broke the glass ceiling and made history as the first million dollar yearling, selling for $1.1 million to Brad Grant and The Maverick Group.
With an impressive group of mares bred in 2019, and a strong lineup for 2020, the legend of Father Patrick continues to be written.
