STALLION UPDATE as at 12 November 2019
Welcome to the first Stallion Update for the 2019/2020 season. With several major prizemoney races that influence premiership outcomes now having been run, the various premierships are starting to take shape. While 2yo and first-season sire premierships are included, it is very much early days in those categories as their major prizemoney races are run in the autumn.
Courtesy of Yes Yes Yes’s The Everest win, Rubick is leading the general sires by prizemoney but not by the margin that you may expect, as he is only $13,000 ahead of Declaration Of War, the sire of Melbourne Cup winner, Vow And Declare. Pierro is running third, ahead of Ocean Park, who holds his unusually lofty status courtesy of Kolding. I Am Invincible is fifth with Zoustar sixth.
By winners I Am Invincible (63) leads Fastnet Rock and Written Tycoon (both 54), Sebring (53) and Pierro (52). By stakes winners the early leaders are Pierro and Zoustar (both 6) from I Am Invincible, So You Think and Blackfriars (all 5).
The leading 3yo sire by earnings is Rubick by some margin courtesy of The Everest from Exceed And Excel, I Am Invincible, Dundeel and Fastnet Rock. By winners the leading 3yo sire is Fastnet Rock (28) from I Am Invincible and Deep Field (both 23), and Rubick, Shamus Award and Zoustar (all 16). By stakes winners the leading 3yo sires are I Am Invincible and So You Think (both 4), from Exceed And Excel and Snitzel (both 3), with seven stallions currently sitting on two.
The leading second-season sire by earnings is Zoustar from Deep Field, Brazen Beau, Shooting To Win and Puissance De Lune. By winners the leading second-season sire is Deep Field (24) from Rubick and Better Than Ready (both 16) followed by Brazen Beau and Toronado (both 10). By stakeswinners the leading second-season sire is Brazen Beau (3) with six stallions currently on one each.
The early leading 2yo sire by earnings is I Am Invincible from Brazen Beau, Siyouni, Pride Of Dubai and Spirit Of Boom. By winners the only multiple-winners so far are Spirit Of Boom (3) and All American and Sidereus (2 each).
Again early days for the first-season sires but by prizemoney Pride Of Dubai leads Criterion, Spill The Beans, Vancouver and I’m All The Talk, while the only first-season sires to record winners so far are Pride Of Dubai and Spill The Beans with one each.
