2015 Leading Sires

For stallions that stand, will stand, or stood (deceased) in North America (stallions that have died or been exported prior to the 2011 breeding season are excluded), and have runners in North America. Listed below are all available Northern Hemisphere statistics through August 27, 2015. As supplied to The Blood-Horse 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 average North American purse in 2014 is $21,617 or 45% of the 2014 average purse 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 19%; Singapore by 54%. Current year stakes winners include all N.H.-foaled black-type stakes winners worldwide. *Foal counts include Southern Hemisphere. Cumulative stakes winners include all countries. Categorical leaders are in bold.
