Tale of the Cat's Northern Hemisphere Rankings

What's This?
Stallions whose progeny performance statistics make them the top 100 sires nationally or among the top 25 leadings sires in a given state are listed with runners, winners, stakes winners, stakes wins, graded stakes winners, grade I stakes winners, chief earner, and aggregate earnings identified for the current year. The same data for the previous year is also presented if the sire met the ranking thresholds. All data except stakes and graded stakes represents Northern Hemisphere data; stakes information is worldwide.

Current Top Performers Worldwide

What's This?
Up to 10 runners are listed for each sire. Runners represent the stallion’s top performers for the year and are displayed according to a hierarchy that gives first preference to the date, graded stakes, stakes, and then non-stakes races. These are sorted by best performance. Older results will remain listed if no new performances occur to replace them. At the beginning of a new year, this section will display the top performers for the previous year through March 31 but a preference is given to current year runners. Each horse listed is linked to additional information including pedigree, sale history, race chart (with video and recap when available). Race data include distance in furlongs; final time of race; and track code. Information is updated daily and reflects official results as recorded by The Jockey Club Information Services.
