His first progeny met with instant approval by taking up two of the top three highest priced lots on the first day of selling at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale this week.
A colt out of Ocean Bridge topped the sale selling for $200,000 while another Onemorenomore colt fetched $150,000.
A Onemorenomore filly also sold for $105,000 out of the stakes winning Flying Spur
mare Spurcent, making three of the top seven priced weanlings on Day 1 by the son of Red Ransom.
"This is an incredible endorsement of the stallion and his progeny,' said Vinery's Adam White.
"It was great to be able to present some nice Onemorenomore's at the weanling sale and Patinack sent us over some from nicely performed mares.
"As a result they were extremely busy from the time they arrived and sold accordingly. It's a great start for him and we're looking forward to bringing them to the yearling sales next year."
Onemorenomore was himself a high priced yearling selling for $800,000 at the 2009 Australian Easter Yearling sale.
"He is such a good looking horse himself and his foals are very athletic, strong types who give the impression that they will be up and running early like Onemorenomore was.
"He placed in a Breeders' Plate and returned to win the final leg of the Triple Crown by a big margin.' White said.
Onemorenomore served 143 mares in his first season returning a high 93.4 percent fertility rating.
That first book included seven G1 winners including Turnbull Stakes winner Devil Moon, AJC Oaks and Vinery Stud Stakes winner Heavenly Glow and the T.J. Smith Quality winner Rinky Dink.
"The results that he has achieved on this scale is a huge incentive for breeders who are considering Onemorenomore this season,' White said.
"His service fee of $24,500 remains unchanged from his first two seasons at stud, a relatively small outlay given the extraordinary returns on his first foals.'
