2019 Freshman Sire of Year
by Larry Thornton
 Hes Relentless had quite a year in 2019 as the leading first crop sire of money earners with over $2.1 million and 11
stakes winners. His stakes winners made him the #2 leading sire of stakes winners and the #3 leading sire of graded stakes winners. You might say he was relentless in his pursuit of the 2019 Leading Freshman Sire of Money Earners title.
A look at the pedigree of Hes Relentless will show his credentials to be a successful sire. He is the son of One Famous Eagle, a horse that has become
a perennial leading sire with earners that will exceed $30 million this year from 10 crops to race. The dam of Hes Relentless is This Dreams Flying, a race winning daughter of Strawfly Special who is a top ten broodmare sire of $49.9 million. This Dreams Flying has proven herself as a producer with one Champion from two stakes winners and three stakes placed runners. She appears to be following in the footsteps of her dam Dashing Phoebe, an AQHA Dam of Distinction. Now let’s take a closer look at where Hes Relentless came from to be the successful young sire he has become.
