Booked Full and Closed in 2019

Always a fan favorite, "The Great White Blaze" finished his racing career in a blaze of glory, winning the TVG Final in 1:48 and adding Older Male Pacer of the Year and Pacer of the Year to his resume in the 2014 Dan Patch Awards. Proving himself an excellent racehorse and champion from start to finish, Sweet Lou was also the 2yo 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 early 2 year old results are outstanding, making Sweet Lou the current leading first year sire.

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.
