Deputy Minister

"Deputy Minister - imparted 'brilliance, determination, precociousness, and potency' to a pedigree"
Ric Waldman - bloodstock advisor and consultant who has also managed the successful careers of such prominent stallions as Storm Cat.


  • Champion two-year-old colt in Canada and U.S. (1981).
  • Horse of the Year in Canada (1983).
  • Leading North American general sire (1997-98).
  • Champion USA Sire (AEI) in 1997 and 1998. 
  • Champion USA Broodmare Sire in 2006 and 2007.

"He was a great stallion and most importantly his presence will be felt for years

to come through his sons and his daughters" Ric Waldman


Sire of Sires:

Deputy Minister as a sire of sires has at least 25 sons who have sired stakes winners; with 16 of these sons siring graded stakes winners and 9 sons who have sired Gr I winners. These include leading sires Silver Deputy (73 SW), Dehere (61 SW), Salt Lake (59 SW), French Deputy (40 SW), Awesome Again (32 SW), and Touch Gold (25 SW) to name a few.

Deputy Minister and his sons seem to have an affinity with mares that carry Blushing Groom,
Mr Prospector, Northern Dancer, Star Kingdom, Sir Tristram, and Success Express lines,
which can be identified in many New Zealand mares.
