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.
