BREAUX BRIDGE, LA—JANUARY 15, 2020—Apollitical Blood, AQHA Racing Champion 3-Year-Old and a champion sire in his first crop to race, already has a full book for 2021 at a fee of $6,500.

The 8-year-old son of leading sire Apollitical Jess, owned by El Cabresto, Inc., stands at Robicheaux Ranch in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.

"We are so proud of the year Apollitical Blood had in 2020," farm manager Ryan Robicheaux said. "To be ranked #4 in top money earners of all stallions with only two crops on the track is unbelievable. I appreciate Mr. Juan Trido and his family choosing Robicheaux Ranch to manage Apollitical Blood’s breeding career."

Apollitical Blood was also the 2020 leading second-crop sire with 67 winners, 12 black type winners with earnings of $2,858,555. Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity (G1) winner Apollitical Patty ($894,192) was his leading money earner in 2020.

In two-crops to reach the track Apollitical Blood has sired 28 stakes horses (21%), earners of over $4.5 million and average earnings per starter of more than $34,100.
