AnnouncementsCheck out Lucy N Ethel who went wire to wire in The Pumpkin Pie Stakes at Aqueduct this weekend. This multple graded stakes winning mare by During has now won 5 of 7 lifetime starts!
We were very excited to see Tapit, Aldrin's three-quarter brother, recently top the Keeneland Book 1 Sale with three horses, Hip 49 for $2.6 million, Hip 69 for $2.7 million and Hip 105 for $2.5 million. This just further establishes Tapit's reputation as America's #1 sire. Considering that Aldrin will stand for a fraction of Tapit's $300,000 stud fee, we think that Aldrin will offer breeders a bargain both on the race track and in the sales ring!!!

Tapit’s three-quarter brother, ALDRIN, arrives at O’Sullivan Farms Randy and John Funkhouser are proud to introduce Aldrin, a three-quarter brother to Tapit, America’s champion sire for the last three years. Aldrin will stand his first season at O’Sullivan Farms, West Virginia’s oldest thoroughbred breeding farm, in Charles Town, WV, in 2018.
Aldrin is a winning son of Malibu Moon out of stakes winner Tap Your Heels, by Unbridled Song. He was the most expensive of Tap Your Heels’ offspring to go through the auction ring, topping the 2014 Keeneland April Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training at $1,000,000 after posting an eighth-mile in 9.80 seconds. Aldrin’s first four dams have all produced extremely influential sires: Foggy Note (dam of Relaunch), Moon Glitter (dam of Glitterman), Ruby Slippers (dam of champion Rubiano), and Tap Your Heels (dam of Tapit). Aldrin is Tapit’s only brother to stand at stud.
Limited lifetime breeding rights for Aldrin are available now. Please contact O’Sullivan Farms for further details at
