Australian Sires Premiership Update

Wednesday, 25th October 2017

After twelve weeks of the 2017-18 racing season, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel maintains a very sizable lead at the top of the national sires' leader board with progeny earnings in excess of $10.7 million – thanks in large part to Redzel's brilliant win in the inaugural $10 million The Everest in Sydney. Occupying second position is Snitzel’s Arrowfield barn-mate Not A Single Doubt whose earnings have surged past $4.2 million, while Coolmore's former champion Australian sire Fastnet Rock rounds out the top three with $3.1 million.
