OTOH, I read on twitter earlier this week (will go back and find it if I can) that one of the newer Japanese shuttling stallions covered 294 mares... (I thought it was Maurice at first but I can't find the tweet...??) Still, that's a whopping number. :shock:

ETA: whoops it was Duramente and 284 mares... Maurice only (!) had 265 :lol:

He's standing in the wrong country, wish people would give him a second look given how his son Darbisim is doing well, and if I am not mistaken a few of Hat Trick's current runners did not too bad this year outside of Japan.
That's a shame.
I hope that Dabirsim's success in Europe will cast a spotlight on hii sire Hat Trick in the US next year, too!!!

Yep. Plus there must be some stallions whose potential is not being realized due to lack of support and/or a lack of a wider range of mares to cover.

Me too! I do feel like US breeders are getting more interested and invested in Turf breeding (if only to attract big euro buyers at the sales) so hopefully a few more will give him a try.

Considering how lame Duramente was during the Shadai Stallion show prior to the 2017 breeding season, I guess he was... motivated enough to cover a book that big! 8-)

I often wonder how much of the year-after-year top sire success is due to legitimate prepotency, and how much feedback loop from top producing mares that flock to them.

Or expensive bloodstock being treated like expensive bloodstock, i.e., being sent to the best trainers, etc.

Most horses have pedigrees crammed with high-class ancestors. Why don't we see horses from alleged "cheap" stock competing at the highest levels more often? There really isn't a lot of genetic difference between a horse by Nobody out of Nothing and a top priced yearling.

I've said for years that there is a horse running right now at in cheap claimers who would rival Northern Dancer in the stud barn--the problem is finding him. :lol:
