Australian Premiership Sires Update

Tuesday, 23rd January 2018

After twenty five weeks of the 2017-18 racing season, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel retains a very healthy lead at the top of the national sires leader board with progeny earnings of $15.4 million. Occupying second position is Coolmore's ill-fated High Chaparral, who made a major move up the leader board after the wins of Rekindling in the Melbourne Cup and Ace High in the Victoria Derby in the spring. Yarraman Park's high-profile sire I Am Invincible rounds out the top three. According to arion.co.nz, the Top 10 ranked stallions in Australia (as of 22 January) are:

  • Snitzel (Redoute's Choice) - $15,483,166
