There are 12 Australian sires in this price point so we’ll separate them into two groups for two stories on the proven sires with runners as listed below and the younger sires starting out, click here to read the story.

Proven Sires

Stakes-winners column is worldwide from August 1 and the sales results are for elite majors where they had three or more sold with the exception of Shamus Award, who only had small numbers of yearlings sell at various sales, so we’ve given his overall average for 13 sold across eight sales.

Shamus Award - click for more information.

A point worth noting is that two of these sires, All Too Hard and Shamus Award have sired three Group I winners among their stakes-winners, while the lone stakes-winner for Flying Artie, whose oldest progeny are two year-olds, is Group I Blue Diamond winner Artorius.

Flying Artie is significantly younger than his price group peers and has had nine winners this season.
