2016 Leading Sires by North American Earnings

For stallions that stand, will stand, or stood (deceased) in North America (stallions exported prior to the 2012 breeding season are excluded), and have runners in North America. Listed below is a comparison of statistics for only North American racing with all available statistics for the Northern Hemisphere (All) through February 12, 2016. As supplied to The Blood-Horse by The Jockey Club Information Systems, Inc., earnings are from only North American racing.
