Son of Thunder to stand at Waldorf Farm

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021

Son of Thunder, a full brother to former leading New York-based freshman sire Laoban, will enter stud for Climax Stallions in 2022 at Waldorf Farm in North Chatham. The 3-year-old son of Uncle Mo out of the stakes-placed Speightstown mare Chattertown will stand his first season for $2,500 LFSN.

“We are honored to have been able to purchase a full brother to such an incredible stallion whose life was cut much too short,” said Sean Feld, president of Climax Stallions. “We will honor Laoban’s legacy by offering a complementary breeding to anyone who bred, bought or is racing any progeny of Laoban.”

Son of Thunder, a $475,000 yearling purchased out of the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale of selected yearlings, raced for Roy and Gretchen Jackson’s Lael Stables.

“He easily passes the eye test,” said Waldorf Farm Manager, Kenny Toye. “If he duplicates what his brother did with his foals, you can breed any type of mare to him.”

Waldorf Farm owner Dr. Jerry Bilinski was also complimentary of Son of Thunder, describing him as having great size and conformation.

“He’s by Uncle Mo, who is becoming a legendary sire of sires and we are flattered to add Son of Thunder to our stallion barn here at Waldorf Farm,” Bilinski said.
