LEADING EUROPEAN STAKES SIRES 2010

BY NUMBER OF BLACK-TYPE HORSES

We tend to think that a horse like Jet Master, arguably as good a stallion that has ever stood in South Africa, has excelled when he posts 12 Stakes winners in a season. Of course, he has, and that’s what makes him what he is. Yet a glance at the European list of leading sire by number of 2010 Black type horses, either makes your mind boggle, or suggests that they have, proportionally, more Black type events.
