Retired to Keene's Castleton Farm, Sweep was the leading sire by earnings in 1918 and again in 1925. He was not only a great sire but a great broodmare sire, with three daughters that produced Kentucky Derby winners. They were Beaming Beauty, dam of Bubbling Over; Brushup, dam of War Admiral; and Dust Whirl, dam of Whirlaway. Both War Admiral and Whirlaway became Triple Crown champions.
His daughter Washoe Belle became the foundation mare to whom trace Forward Pass, Alydar, Princess Turia, T.V. Lark., etc.
Another daughter, La Chica, became the foundation mare to whom trace Grey Flight and Native Dancer, which brings us the Northern Dancer and Mr. Prospector lines.
Other successful progeny include Eternal, General Thatcher, The Porter, Leonardo, Bon Homme, and Pen Rose.
Sweep died in 1936.

Famous quotes containing the word retirement:
“Adultery itself in its principle is many times nothing but a curious inquisition after, and envy of another mans enclosed pleasures: and there have been many who refused fairer objects that they might ravish an enclosed woman from her retirement and single possessor.”
—Jeremy Taylor (16131667)
“Convent. A place of retirement for women who wish for leisure to meditate upon the sin of idleness.”
—Ambrose Bierce (18421914)
“Douglas. Now remains a sweet reversion
We may boldly spend, upon the hope
Of what is to come in.
A comfort of retirement lives in this.
Hotspur. A rendezvous, a home to fly unto.”
