Proving himself an excellent racehorse and champion from start to finish, Sweet Lou was also the 2-year-old Pacing Colt of the Year in 2011.

Sweet Lou’s speed and charismatic star power encouraged an excellent book for his first two seasons as a stallion.  His first crop of “baby blazes” hit the ground in 2016, many sporting the trademark blaze of their sire.  With staggering returns on the first crop yearling prices, breeders are being rewarded for their investment in Sweet Lou.  His racehorses continue to be stars on the track at ALL ages.

With many high-quality mares filling his book year after year and a high in-foal rate, Sweet Lou is aiming for the skies and has the best opportunity any stallion could hope for to achieve legendary success.
