First Season Wednesday Runners

Tara Madgwick - Tuesday April 13

The first season sire division has been action packed this season and key players like Capitalist, Shalaa (IRE) and Frosted (USA) all have runners today.

Extreme Choice holds a narrow lead over Capitalist by earnings, while the Golden Slipper winning sire leads the pack by winners (8, Aussie) although with six stallions currently on five winners each the battle for leading first season sire by winners is one that could go down to the wire as the back end of the season unfolds.
