2016 Leading Sires by North American Earnings

For stallions that stand, will stand, or stood (deceased) in North America (stallions exported prior to the 2012 breeding season are excluded), and have runners in North America. Listed below is a comparison of statistics for only North American racing with all available statistics for the Northern Hemisphere (All) through April 28, 2016. As supplied to The Blood-Horse by The Jockey Club Information Systems, Inc., earnings are from only North American racing. The percentage (%) next to the column for North American earnings represent the portion that North American racing has contributed to a stallion's total North Hemisphere progeny earnings. Northern Hemisphere earnings include on par earnings from Japan (progeny earnings multiplied by 45% before being credited to a sire's progeny earnings), Hong Kong earnings are adjusted by 19%; Singapore by 54%.
