Australian Sires Premiership Update | Breeding & Racing

After thirty three weeks of the 2017-18 racing season, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel continues to be in a league of his own on top of the sires leader board with all-time Australian record progeny earnings of over $19 million. Occupying second position is Coolmore's ill-fated High Chaparral, who made a major move up the leader board after the wins of Rekindling in the Melbourne Cup and Ace High in the Victoria Derby in the spring, with $10.5 million, while Yarraman Park's high-profile sire I Am Invincible rounds out the top three.
