Rule by Night adds to Malibu Moon's impressive list of stakes horses

Sunday, October 10, 2010
Malibu Moon sired his 24th stakes performer of the year on Oct. 9, after Rule by Night was a close second in the $250,000 Gallant Bob S. at Parx Racetrack.

Rule by Night, a 3-year-old chestnut colt, has been first or second in five of his seven starts. He has earned $159,000 for his owner, Gold Square, who acquired him at the 2008 Keeneland September yearling sale for $200,000. Rule by Night is one of three winners out of the unraced mare Silver Reserve, who is a half-sister to Boone's Mill, winner of the Grade 2 Sapling S. He was bred in Kentucky by Sierra Farm.

Rule by Night was always prominent in the six furlong Gallant Bob. He engaged in a four-way duel for nearly the entire race while stuck on the rail. It was only in the final strides that he reluctantly gave up the lead in a very game effort.

Malibu Moon has sired nine stakes winners, three Grade 1 winners this year, co-best among all stallions in North America. He ranks third on the General Sires List, one of only four sires with progeny earnings in excess of $7 million. His six Grade 1 horses comprise a formidable arsenal: Life At Ten (Beldame and Ogden Phipps); Devil May Care (CCA Oaks and Mother Goose); Malibu Prayer (Ruffian Invitational); Funny Moon (3rd Ogden Phipps); Latigo Shore (3rd King's Bishop); Moon de French (3rd Lady's Secret).
