Description

This photograph of the graded stakes-winning Thoroughbred Sun Briar was taken in 1926.

Sun Briar was foaled in France in 1915 and purchased at the 1916 Saratoga yearling auction by newspaperman, businessman, and breeder Willis Sharpe Kilmer.

Under the training of Henry McDaniel, Sun Briar won five of his nine starts in his two-year-old season. He set multiple track records during his racing career before retiring to a successful stud career in 1919 at Kilmer’s Court Manor Stud in New Market, Virginia.
