2015 Freshman Sires Under The Spotlight

Among these are the almost halo effect that the market is now pricing into the young progeny and, consequently, to mares carrying their stock, of freshman stallions.

The 2015 breeding season, which starts two months from today, will see the start of a new career for 36 of the most exciting gallopers we've been privileged to watch race, whether here or abroad.
