Currently, Flashy Bull has sired three crops that are of racing age. Sixty-eight percent of his starters are winners through November 4. He has 10 stakes winners including the Grade III victor Flashy Lassie. Flashy Bull has two other 2013 multiple stakes winners in Flashy American and Balooga Bull.

Director of stallion operations at Penn Ridge, Tom Riegle, said the farm will continue to work with Airdrie Stud in Midway, Kentucky, where Flashy Bull stood previously at a 2013 fee of $10,000.

Riegle notes:

... We believe that Flashy Bull will be a great addition, not only to our roster, but to the Pennsylvania breeding program as well.

As a registered Pennsylvania Thoroughbred stallion, Flashy Bull is welcomed to the Penn Ridge stallion roster. Special consideration will be extended to all mares foaling babies in Pennsylvania.

Flashy Bull is joining three other sires already on the stallion roster at Penn Ridge. These horses are Messner, Petionville and Uptowncharlybrown.
