"Watching what Apollitical Blood has accomplished with only three crops to go to the track, is impressive," Farm Manager Ryan Robicheaux said. "Ranked among the best sires in the country, who have had many more crops to race, Apollitical Blood has sired multiple Graded Stakes winners and the earners of over $8 million, with a fraction of the starters. Comparing the numbers, itís just incredible."

"With a large number of two-year-oldís for Five Bar Cartel next season, this should be a exciting year for him," Robicheaux said. "This will be the crop we bred after he was named leading freshman sire of the country. His bounce back program offers his breeders a great return on investment."

AQHA Racing Champion Aged Stallion Tarzanito will remain $3,500 for 2022. His first crop hit the ground this year (2021).

"Tarzanito first crop are as impressive now as short-yearlings as they were when they were born. We are excited for his future," Robicheaux says.
