The Blood-Horse's online stallion reference, Stallion Register Online
, is now easier to navigate than ever before and even more useful and functional with expanded auction information. Stallion Register Online
now features navigational links located at the top of every stallion's page that allow users to click through to the information that is most important -- current top performers, recent stakes performers, auction results, and farm contact information. Also available now are hip-by-hip auction results for weanlings, yearlings, 2-year-olds, and covering sire sales results for 2006, 2005, and 2004.
Each category is accompanied by a summary of horses offered, sold, average price, median price, and averages for colts and fillies. In addition, enhanced ranking information shows whether a stallion is among the top 25 sires on a number of key sire lists such as leading first-crop sires, second-crop sires, and leading sires by state. A free hypothetical mating service will be added in the coming weeks when Stallion Register Online
rolls over for the 2007 breeding season. Stallion Register Online
is a wide-ranging directory of over 2,500 stallions and the industry's one-stop resource for making breeding decisions. StallionRegister.com users are notably loyal. On average, over 38% of all Stallion Register Online
visitors visit the Web site 9 or more times per month.
"People in the Thoroughbred industry already love Stallion Register Online
because of its easy-to-use format, and now we've made finding the information they need even easier," said Eric Mitchell, director of research for Blood-Horse Publications. "The detailed auction results and hypothetical matings now make this site truly indispensable to anyone involved in breeding, racing, or sales."
