Diamond Creek Farm announced today that the book for harness racing World Champion and "Pacer of the Year" Sweet Lou is now full and closed for the upcoming breeding season.
 
"He closed just as quickly this year as he did last year, during his first season at stud," said Diamond Creek owner Adam Bowden. "I think it speaks very well of the confidence breeders have in him, not only in regard to his siring potential, but in the enthusiasm that's expected from buyers when his foals sell as yearlings," he added.
 
Sweet Lou p,1:47f ($3,478,894), by Yankee Cruiser-Sweet Future, is the only horse in history to pace six consecutive winning miles faster than 1:48. He was a World Champion and Dan Patch Champion as a 2-year-old and was voted "Pacer of the Year" as a 5-year-old in 2014. He has stood for a fee of $7,500.
 
He booked full in 2015--his first season at stud in the U.S.--and repeated the feat Down Under. Those mares from Australia and New Zealand included the 3 and 4-year-old champion Adore Me, a winner of A$1,677,032 and 1:47.7 mile track record holder.
 
With this year's book including big names like I Luv The Nitelife, Somwherovrarainbow, Ginger And Fred, and the dam of the undefeated 2015 Dan Patch Champion 2-year-old filly Pure Country, Sweet Lou's popularity continues to shine.
 
"We'll start seeing his first foals any time now," Bowden said. "We look forward to welcoming the 'baby blazes' and expect them to be just as athletic and charismatic as their sire."
 
Breeders and fans may follow the siring career of the original "Great White Blaze" on Twitter @greatwhiteblaze.
