2015 Leading Turf Sires

For stallions represented by a runner in North America, the leaders are arranged by earnings in North American grass races through July 30, 2015, as supplied to The Blood-Horse. Statistics reflect North American racing only. *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.
