archarcharch was a very very talented race horse and is bred in the purple best family in the stud book being by arch he has a license to be any kind of stallion. they bred 159 mares to him in his 1st year at stud.
he probably didnt get the best of mares but he has as good of a chance to be a top stallion as any horse who has gone to stud in many years.
1st dam by woodman stakes winner of $298k, besides archarcharch $800k she produced another stakes winner of $165k
2nd dam by nureyev stakes winner of $273k produced 5 other stakes winners of $136k,$206K,$133k,$138k
3rd dam stakes winner of $198k produced 3 stakes winners of $266k,$273k,$185k
and under these 3 dames are a ton of other stakes winners.
What's not to like?
Yes, I meant Smarty. His female family doesn't seem to have had a negative affect on his racing ability. If I was rich & in the breeding business I wouldn't hesitate to breed a high quality mare or two to him. Time has proved a thousand times over that a good racehorse can come from anywhere.
