Constitution will miss Kentucky Derby and rest of Triple Crown. Uncle Sigh is officially in if he wants it.

Well there goes my dream of him winning the Derby and the Preakness. My unconscious mind was only 1/3 right

Wavering Monarch, stakes-winner and fantastic sire

The winner of the 1982 Haskell Invitational and Omaha Gold Cup, Wavering Monarch’s fame as a stallion rest mostly in his grandchildren. He sired champion juvenile Maria’s Mon, who in turn sired two Kentucky Derby winners (Monarchos and Super Saver) as well as two champion fillies (Wait a While and Awesome Maria). Wavering Monarch also produced the filly Whiffling, who was the dam of ill-fated 1983 Champion 3-Year-Old Colt Prairie Bayou

Wavering Monarch died June 17, 2004
