2020 will offer Yearling buyers a mouth watering opportunity to pick up the progeny of an incredible line up of 1st Season Sires . . . .
FROM a US Triple Crown winner through to a Golden Slipper victor, the highest rated Blue Diamond winner, a Caulfield Guineas winner as well as a Coolmore Stud Stakes Champion. Then you also throw into the mix a NZ Guineas winner, a USA Met Mile winner as well as well credentialed sons by Invincible Spirit, Deep Impact, Tapit and you begin to realise that this is a stellar line-up in the 1st season sire ranks for 2020/21. Furthermore, the 84% increase in Australian Prizemoney in the last 10 years has duly made the task of selecting a yearling by a 1st season sire not just difficult, but also requiring a Billionaire’s budget!!
HOWEVER, for all of the hype and the unrelenting stream of well manicured and manipulated marketing campaigns, sits an opportunity for the discerning Yearling buyer to “box smart” and “play the percentages“. Take heed if you are keen get an edge and to avoid 6 figure sums for yearlings.
SIR PRANCEALOT‘s first offering of yearlings will quietly walk into the ring off a understated $16,500 service fee. However, if SIR PRANCEALOT replicates his Northern Hemisphere statistics that his 1st racing crop produced in 2016, there is going to be nothing quiet about the likely adoration for this pre-potent, Danzig free stallion that has thrown a type that has the best judges taking note!
SIR PRANCEALOT beat FRANKEL in one sense of the word!!! With 32 individual winners in his 1st crop, he nearly doubled the number of individual winners that the “Greatest of all time” produced and duly landed the coveted 1st season sires title in Europe. But it didn’t stop there, in the next 3 years his stock has gone onto some truly remarkable feats given they were conceived off a mere EURO $6,000.
SIR DANCEALOT sits at the top of the British sprinting ranks with FIVE individual Group 2 wins to date. BEAU RECALL wins the Gr 2 Distaff Turf Mile on Kentucky Derby Day, while MADAM DANCEALOT, Group 1 placed, becomes California’s premier turf belle with a win in the Gr 2 Honeymoon Stks…… and this only accounts for the runners from his 1st crop of gallopers !!!!
With 7 INDIVIDUAL STAKES WINNERS, your chances of getting a Stakes Performed horse jump to an incredible 20+% when he covers a DANEHILL line mare. Furthermore, the sire’s progeny find new gears on the firm, tight turning turf tracks of America (14 individual US runners for 10 winners, 6 Stakes Horses and 4 Stakes Winners). Furthermore, from only 270 live foals from just 4 crops of racing age, SIR PRANCEALOT has simply upgraded poor Irish mares to throw 5.5% Stakes Performers to foals……… Consider this from a 105 foals born in his 1st crop, he got 96 individual runners!!! They get to the track and they run……
CORNERSTONE STUD have deep dived into the SIR PRANCEALOT data and mated this stallion to achieve even greater success than what he achieved in Europe.
“We now know what it takes to make this stallion tick” said Sam Hayes. “We are offering 3 colts at Melbourne and a draft of 8 at Adelaide and also a filly in Perth. To say I am excited is an understatement, because these Yearlings will have people talking and I have unwaivering belief in what this stallion will do for us in 2020.”
