Grandson of Sunday Silence Wins Japan's Triple Crown

He's a bright chestnut, like his grand-daddy's arch enemy Easy Goer, but his blaze is almost exactly like that of Sunday Silence.  Orfevre is his name; his sire is Stay Gold (by Sunday Silence), and his dam is Oriental Art (by Mejiro McQueen).  Sunday he won the Japanese St. Leger, worth $2.7 million, by two and a half lengths.  He is quite a handsome guy!  He is the seventh horse to win the Japan Triple Crown.
