Pierro Takes $500k Lead Into New Year

Wednesday, 8th January 2020

Coincing with the first Australian yearling sale of 2020, where he is represented at the Gold Coast by some two dozen yearlings, Coolmore Stud’s undefeated 2YO Champion Pierro (Lohnro-Miss Right Note, by Daylami) sits a healthy $500,000-plus clear of his Hunter Valley breeding barn contemporaries Rubick and Declaration of War. A glut of upcoming lucrative feature racing in the months ahead will test the entire top tier in the race for the Australian General Sires Premiership, but there is nothing to suggest that Lonhro won’t hold his own over the next 7 months. According to arion.co.nz, the Top 10 leading stallions as of 7 January are:

  1. Pierro (Lonhro) - $8,402,898
  2. Rubick (Encosta de Lago) - $7,896,045
  3. Declaration of War (War Front) - $7,817,515
  4. I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) - $7,589,520
  5. Ocean Park (Thorn Park) - $7,089,430
  6. Zoustar (Northern Meteor) - $6,791,300
  7. Snitzel (Redoute's Choice) - $5,766,737
  8. Exceed and Excel (Danehill) - $5,353,640
