2016 Leading Sires by AEI

For active stallions in North America with at least 150 named foals of racing age (excluding stallions exported prior to the 2012 breeding season), arranged by lifetime Average Earnings Index (AEI). Number of foals includes only named Northern Hemisphere foals, which are used to calculate the percentages. Auctions results are for most North American sales and selected foreign sales. Stakes winners are worldwide and follow black type rules. Includes racing results May 31, 2016. *AVERAGE EARNINGS INDEX and COMPARABLE INDEX: The lifetime Average-Earnings Index indicates how much purse money the progeny of one sire has earned, on the average, in relation to the average earnings of all runners in the same years; average earnings of all runners in any year is represented by an index of 1.00. The Comparable Index indicates the average earnings of progeny produced from mares bred to one sire, when these same mares were bred to other sires. Only 32% of all sires have a lifetime AEI higher than their mares' Comparable Index.
