Poll Question: Freshman Sires

Last year, when Offlee Wild (TrueNicks,SRO) emerged as Champion Freshman Sire, his credentials fit an interesting profile:

  • His biggest win came as a 5-year-old in the 10-furlong Suburban H. (gr. I)

  • His sire line is not known for precocious two-year-olds

  • His first crop had only 72 two-year-olds

  • His initial stud fee was a moderate $15,000

  • High-priced stallions with their first runners on the track in 2010 include Bernardini (TrueNicks,SRO), First Samurai (TrueNicks,SRO), Bluegrass Cat (TrueNicks,SRO), and Henny Hughes (TrueNicks,SRO).

    Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I) and Met Mile (gr. I) winner Silver Train (TrueNicks,SRO) leads all first crop stallions with 125 two-year-olds.

    The following stallions have less than 90 two-year-olds of 2010, and each stood their initial stud season for a fee between $10,000 and $20,000.
