2017 Leading Sires by North American Earnings

For stallions that stand, will stand, or stood (deceased) in North America (stallions exported prior to the 2013 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 21, 2017. As supplied to BloodHorse by The Jockey Club Information Systems, Inc., earnings are from only North American racing. The percentage (%) next to the column for North American earnings represent the portion that North American racing has contributed to a stallion's total North Hemisphere progeny earnings. Northern Hemisphere 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%.
