GALILEO
is conspicuous because you can see in the first

Column
which shows the number of STAKES WINNERS that each

sire
has foaled, that he has a monumental total of 122 SW.

With
1245 runners, even with Champion racing ability, Multiple Champion sire proven
ability, and the best of opportunities he is leaving more failures than
successes.

We
can calculate he is leaving ONE STAKES WINNER per 9.79

foals
to race, which is still one of the best records around.

Alamosa,
(oldest 2yo)Red Giant (yearlings)and Thewayyouare (yearlings)have not sired a
SW yet because they are just starting out. But they have large representations
of 34,39 and 40 yearlings respectively in each of these 3 sales.

They
are well credentialed pedigree wise, are very good looking individuals, stand
at very successful and well established commercial studs with a large client
base.

These stallions were all standout
racehorses. It is no wonder they have been afforded excellent opportunities at
stud.

Iffraaj--------004-------069-------007-----048-------014

Mastercraftsma-000-------092-------054-----038-------x

The
honour of the most commercial yearlings goes to Iffraaj

Who
has 69 yearlings entered in the sales, and the new sire

Mastercraftsman
who has a whopping 92 yearlings.

There
has been some great management here. Iffraaj has been

well
promoted as a virile horse and the sire of an exceptional number of winning
juveniles.

Mastercraftsman
was the Champion 2yo colt in England ,
where he won 7 races worth P1,236,275.

He
follows in the footsteps of sires like StarWay, Kaapstad

and
Danske at the same stud, to name a few there whose books were almost totally SW
mares, SW producers or extremely commercial.
