Buffer Has Stallion Rivals Playing Catch Up

Tuesday, 2nd June 2020

Arrowfield Stud stalwart Snitzel (Redoute's Choice) refused to yield any ground over the weekend, with the Listed win of Scallopini in Doomben's Hinkler Stakes keeping him ticking along nicely. With the end of the season at the end of next month, and just Saturday's brace of Gr1 races left, his closest rival Pierro is still more than $1 million adrift with a further $500,000 back to I Am Invincible. Although that's a handy cushion, it'd be silly to go the early crow and call him the winner even if he's now into Winx-like odds. According to arion.co.nz, the Top 10 Australian General Sires, as of 1 June, are:

  1. Snitzel (Redoute's Choice) – $15,598,447
  2. Pierro (Lonhro) – $14,456,578
  3. I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) – $14,033,556
  4. Not a Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice) – $11,421,391
  5. Sebring (More Than Ready) – $10,718,863
  6. Fastnet Rock (Danehill) – $10,459,559
  7. Rubick (Encosta de Lago) – $10,250,409
  8. Exceed and Excel (Danehill) – $9,969,587
  9. Zoustar (Northern Meteor) – $9,714,299
  10. Written Tycoon (Iglesia) – $9,629,910
