Australian Premiership Sires Update

Tuesday, 30th January 2018

After the half-way point (twenty six weeks) of the 2017-18 racing season, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel still holds a sizable advantage at the top of the national sires leader board with progeny earnings in excess of $15.8 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, with $9.5 million.
