Dynaformer (foaled April 1, 1985) is a thoroughbred stallion, currently standing at stud at Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky.

Dynaformer started in 30 races, winning 7 of them, placing in 5, and coming in third twice. His career earnings amount to $671,207.

As a sire

But it's as a stallion that his fame rests. Dynaformer has been a top sire four times in the last five years, and Number One in 2005. His current stud fee is $150,000 per live foal.

Dynaformer sired Barbaro, who won the Kentucky Derby in 2006. He has also sired Mystery Giver and Perfect Drift, the latter is Dynaformer's biggest money earner by far. He also sired grass horse Lucarno, the winner of the G1 British Classic, the St. Leger Stakes.

Dynaformer is also versatile, numbering among his get McDynamo, the five-time winner of the Grade I Breeders' Cup Grand National Steeplechase. His best fillies to date are Riskaverse, Film Maker, and Dynaforce.
