Looks like God's Love was one of 12 foals out of Mari's Princess. Looks like only 5 of 12 were winners and 3 of them earned more than $50k.
Sire A Giant Valentine wasn't much of a runner 10-0-1-1 but his dam was a grade 3 winner. He stood in Indiana then Kentucky. Only notable offspring is Here Comes Jigs (OH) who earned over 150k by placing in a couple Ohio Bred stakes.
Best financial chance would be to make sure you end up with an Indiana or Ohio bred. I would say Indiana's program is currently a little weaker on horses and stronger on purses.

I live in New Mexico and cannot ship my mare. These two stallions are the two available. I don't have a fee on these two so the only expenses are training and what it takes to get a foal to the track if they prove they want to run.
You are in New Mexico. Is the mare in New Mexico? Trying to come up with the best options for a limited budget. Looking for a state bred program? A no fee or low fee stallion is rarely the least expensive long term choice.

Yes the mare is in New Mexico. If Pass The Butter is the stallion I will participate in state bred programs. Probably will either way. But Pass the Butter's foal wouldn't go into training until at least 3. He is over 18 hands and has problems because he was worked too hard too early. Had he been allowed to mature I believe he would have done better.
must have been a good response to Justin Phillip in NM, that article from last Oct said $3000, and he's listed at $5000 now, co-highest cover in the state.
feisty - if it's just the option of those two, I think you answered your question in a previous post. your best chance to have some fun and not get hurt financially is to have a sound and healthy foal/horse. You mentioned Pass the Butter's size and that it caused him problems. To many unknowns to take the risk on a known issue like that, so I would go with the other one...
