Foaled in 1858, Blue Bull was sired by Pruden's Blue Bull out of Queen. Like Hambletonian, Blue Bull was used for stud only and had 56 foals in the 2:30 list from approximately 900 foals. He initially stood in Indiana. In 1884 (four years after his death), Blue Bull was the leading sire of Standard performers, temporarily dethroning none other than Hambletonian! He won fame as a sire of progenitors of some of our top stars of today. Blue Bull died in 1880.
