Right after attending the annual meeting that hosted by China Horse Industry Association, RacingLand's team was invited to JHX farm, one of the largest farm in Beijing, to share some industrial knowledge and experiences.
While we were inspecting around the farm, we spotted a black horse surrounded by white snow. Its name Cheers Brightly, a Japan Group 3 winner. More surprisingly, he is the offspring of Sunday Silence (USA).
Cheers Brightly is probably the only stallion of Sunday Silence outside of Japan. he currently stands at stud at JHX in Beijing.
About Sunday Silence:

His offspring have won 143 graded races, including 28 group I races and four Nippon Derby, in JRA-sponsored races. He covered over 2,000 mares in Japan. Sunday Silence is considered as the most influence sire for the Japan modern racing.
