Thoroughbred breeders know that stud fees are one of the truest gauges of our industry's health. The December MarketWatch issue provides in-depth information about individual stallions' fees and their progeny performances, along with breeding, sales, and racing norms by stallion groups. MarketWatch is your annual source for complete details about incoming and young sires along with established stallions. Eric Mitchell analyzes the stud market (cover story) and 18 pages of charts allow you to explore further.
Special lists (pages 20-21) identify 2010's leading weanling and covering sires by median sales prices.
MarketWatch's ongoing "Sire-Producing Families" feature (pages 22-24) is especially timely in December. This month, Avalyn Hunter profiles Rough Shod II, ancestress of highly-anticipated incoming sire Blame.
As always, more exclusive content is available--to subscribers only!--at the MarketWatch web site, including special reports, an archive of past issues, and prospective pinhook reports for upcoming sales. (The MarketWatch home page has subscription details if you haven't already signed up.)
