Time and Dollars Weigh Heavily on Challengers

Friday, 12th June 2020

As D-Day for the all-important Australian General Sires Premiership looms, there are twin constraints that inevitably shackle stallions trying to play catch-up: prizemoney and time. On both counts – even before the added deficit of significantly clipped prizemoney for remaining seasonal feature races – it appears that neither is going to be sufficient to knock reigning champion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice) off the perch he has already sat on for multiple consecutive seasons as he closes in on the $16 million benchmark. Below are the Top 10 Australian General Sires, according to arion.co.nz as at 11 June.

  1. Snitzel (Redoute's Choice) – $15,935,829
  2. Pierro (Lonhro) – $14,685,773
  3. I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) – $14,249,388
  4. Not a Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice) – $11,718,978
  5. Sebring (More Than Ready) – $10,989,878
