Probably viewed as another Ho-Hum son of More Than Ready, Daredevil looks to have started out at $12,500, sliding down to $7500, with not enough excitement for his foals so off to Turkey he went.... and now two first crop daughters have run 1-2 in the Kentucky Oaks. Swiss Skydiver was a good buy by McPeek, for $35k. I don't know what this KY market has against Halo line horses. I, for one, Love to see Halo on top of a stallion's pedigree.

I'm with you Madelyn. The market needs some 'other' blood than MP/ND. Halo has stamina and More Than Ready has been a stellar sire for years. I'm sure he could be 'bought back' for a price...

It's a Winstar failure, he went from 140 mares to 21.
Regardless of the pedigree, he was a one time stakes winner at age two who didn't do squat at age three, so what's the marketing angle when you have 20+ other stallions at the same farm?

The fact he stood in Ky at all is a testament to the owners but it was a double edged sword.
