For stallions that stand, will stand, or stood (deceased) in North America (stallions that have died or been exported prior to the 2013 breeding season are excluded), and have runners in North America. Listed below are all available Northern Hemisphere statistics through March 30, 2017. As supplied to BloodHorse by The Jockey Club Information Systems, Inc., earnings include adjusted money from Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Adjusted earnings are put on par with average North American earnings from the previous year. For example, the North American average earnings per starter in 2016 was $22,141 or 45% of the 2016 average earnings per starter in Japan. To put earnings on par, all Japanese progeny earnings are multiplied by 45% before being credited to a sire's progeny earnings. Hong Kong earnings are adjusted by 17%; Singapore by 65%.
