PERFORMANCE OF INDIAN SIRES AS REGARDS JUVENILES WINNERS IN THE CURRENT SEASON

Wednesday, February 6, 2008

The annual sales of race horses is ON & there is a break in racing activity. It provides us with an opportunity to have a look at the performance of the sires in the country. For obvious reasons the results of Chennai Races have not been included. Indian sires along with their juvenile( two /three year olds winners )during 2007/08 are listed below.


1. ALNASR ALWASHEEK ----
VALIANT BAY, PALAZZIO’S SON, SCENIC MELODY & BEAT HOLLOW.
A versatile sire whose produce (costly) is good for all distances. He produces classic/ black type winners regularly.

2. ANSBACH -----
FANTASIA BURINO & ZIP.
Basically for Delhi races.


3. BEE’S PROSPECTOR----
BEAUTY OF MAN.
He produced decent sprinters/ mid distance winners .

4. BLACK CASH----
VIJAY SAMRAT.
This sire performed extremely well with the first crop, this year the horses have not come to hand. Has produced sprinters/ mid distance types, except for Vijayraaj no classic type last year. The produce likes firm ground and the results go down during monsoon time.

5. BRAVE ACT------
BLOOD STREAM & PRINCE VILLE.
This staying type sire was a disappointment last year. Unfortunately his produce has not shown even over a staying distance.

6. BURDEN OF PROOF------
SUGAR RAY, EXCLUSIVE GREY, FLEETING ARROW & MUSIC ON DEMAND.
A reasonably good sire whose winners in the last few years have been basically good sprinters.

7. CASE LAW-----
EONA.
The produce can only win in sprints in lower classes.

8. CHINA VISIT-----
KIARA, SENSATIONAL STAR, THUNDERING HOOVES & SPLENDID ELEGANCE.
This son of the famous sire of sires RED RANSOM did extremely well with the first crop. RUBY QUEEN won the Hyderabad Derby. Produced some good types like PERPETUITY, STAR OF CHINA,OROCHI,IMPERIAL VIEW,AZUREUS etc. He may not have performed as well as the hype created but definitely he is bound to produce good horses.


9. CLASSIC TALE----
ROXY
He is past his prime.

10. DAHYAH----
INSAAS
AN ordinary sire.

11. DIFFIDENT-----
QUEEN’S GUEST, ACCALIA, BLAZING BOUNTY, BELLA& LADYBANKS.
A top sire in most respects. Has a precocious produce& a tremendous strike ratio for wins , number of wins etc, his progeny excels in soft underfoot conditions.

12. DON MICHELETTO-----
STRENGTH TO SUCCEED, SPECTACULAR FALCON, SHE’S SUPERB, STORMING SUCCESS & ESSENCE.
His performance this year is most astonishingly good for an upcoming stud farm. Selective infusion of good mares & the results are evident at least in Delhi where most of the crop is racing.

13. DUJA----
EASY FLASH & RUBY ROUGE.
A reasonably well performing, under utilized sire who produces good sprinters.

14. EL JOHAR----
COMMON KNOWLEDGE.
The produce has good initial speed, for sprints only.

15. FLITCH---
EXCLUSIVELY,DURNESS,COSTA MESSA & ARCOLOGY.
A reasonably OK sire who producing mid distance types. The produce takes time to come to hand.


16. GASWAR----
DURABELLA & RECONNECT.
Good sire surprisingly under utilized, who has produced good sprinters/milers.

17. HAMMERSTEIN----
MANDJI & HARDCORE.
An average sire who thrilled the owners of MANDJI by providing a million plus winner from a 3 lac colt.

18. HYMN----
GLOBAL EMPEROR.
A disappointing son of Fairy King who has not delivered much.. Even the imported mares crossed by him have not produced any mentionable runner.


19. INDICTMENT-----
AURORA AUREALIS.
Does justice to the limited stock. A useful sire.

20. INNER CITY----
STROKE OF LUCK & SIDDON PRETTY.
A middle distance type average sire.


21. JOINT ACCOUNT---
SAN SIRO.
Very average sire.

22. JUNIPER----
DANCER’S WAVE, IKARIA,SPARK OF ISIS, SPECIAL GESTURE& ONE MISSION.
After the disappointing crop of last year appears to be producing better racers. Though he is not likely to match his predecessor TIROL, he may just be a reasonable producer.

23. KLY GREEN-----
COLARADO PRIDE.
An average sprinter producing sire whose produce races in Hyderabad & Delhi mostly.


24. LOCAL TALENT-----
BOURBON STAR & REFLECTION OF GOLD.
Produced mid distance to staying types.

25. MAJOR IMPACT----
IAEPETUS, POCKET ROCKET,GLEAMING SKY,ALCMENE& SOUTHERN SUMMIT.
A most versatile & precocious sire whose produce are constant winners over all surfaces & do well in sprints / middle distances. Likely to produce classic /semi classic types.

26. MR MELLON------
ADAMANT APPROACH, MISS HONEYDEW,QUALITY ASSURANCE, FANTASTIC QUEST.
He is a sprinter producing sire, surprisingly his produce REGAL CONNECTION won the Calcutta Derby . Without taking away the credit it must be mentioned that the mare COUNTESS OF POLAND (a costly import)finally lived upto the expectations of her breeders who had great hopes from her.

27. MUDEER-----
HEYDAN.
An average sire.

28. ONTARIO-----
SUCCESSOR, RAVILEENA, PIATO & SOUND OF NATURE.
The breeders had given him a large crop confidentially & he appears to be justifying their faith in producing some good types. The impression one gets is that the speed element is there in the crop, whether the winners will come over increasing distances will have to be watched.


29. PENINE RIDGE----
MIND ME.
Produces some good types but throws a lot of ordinary types. The produce wins only in late monsoon/winters.

30. PLACERVILLE-----
STAR WAVE, GOLDEN SKY & ORIGINALITY.
After being the top sire over the years has been sliding down though the strike rate for classic/ black types is good. The crop is no more precocious as it used to be in his heydays. The number of non winners in his crop last year is disturbing.


31. POLAR FALCON----
POWER DIVINE
An average sire.

32. RAZEEN-----
SET ALIGHT,VIJAY RATH,AUTONOMY,INSPIRING TRUST,MY DREAM & SILVER ROSE.
The top sire in the country, the produce performs exceptionally in hard / firm underfoot conditions. Excels over all distances.

33. ROYAL GLADIATOR----
STUNNING ROSE&ROYAL AMBER.
Last years crop was fairly good, looks an OK sire .

34. SENURE---
DAFFODILS.
Maybe the crop takes time to come to hand or perhaps they like the wet conditions of Pune type race courses. Produced the Pune Derby Winner in GOBELIN. He has a good future & his crop should be doing well this year also.


35. SERIOUS SPENDER----
POETIC, JOIN THE PARTY & SAKSHAM BABE.
A decent sire who hasn’t got the best of the mares but done well with the mixed lot.

36. SIR BORDEAUX----
STERLING SPEED.

37. STEINBECK---
RED ROMEO.(Perhaps the top horse in juveniles seen so far)
Got very few mares the last two years as China Visit took over. Produced the Mysore Derby winner Splendid Surprise. RED ROMEO may be worth more than a crore right now.
38. TIROL---
FRAGRANT MEADOW.
Was a very decent sire over sprints/ mid distances.

39. WARRSHAN----
EASY TOUCH, ANGELS GLORY, IMPRESSIVE WISH, SPARK OF ELEGANCE, AMAZING ACT & SECRET ADMIRER.
He has been a good sire like his brother Razeen , though not of the same status.
Has given some good race horses from fairly OK mares.


40. YOUNG SENOR-----
GOLDEN CELEBRATION,DASH OF CLASS,DASH ON REGARDLESS&LADY PATRICIA
Hyderabad racing woudn’t have been the same without a huge contribution by him. His produce is very sturdy & he has notched up multiple wins from most of his stock. Though over the hill, he has given good sprinters/ mid distance types.
