$22,000 is an interesting price point featuring 12 Australian stallions that include just two that have had runners here and they are Coolmore barn mates Vancouver and Pride of Dubai, whose oldest progeny are three year-olds.

Their Aussie stats are very similar for this season with Vancouver siring 44 winners including two stakes-winners and Pride of Dubai siring 43 winners including three stakes-winners.

Both have shuttled to the Northern Hemisphere so have runners up there so in the table below their SW column is worldwide from August 1, 2020.

Omaha Beach

He covered 104 mares in his debut season last year and remains at the same fee.

Fourth Season

We’ve got four stallions here heading into their fourth season and that means they’ve just had their first yearlings selling this year which is often a good indication as to how the market really sees them.

All four are Group I winners by champion sires – Churchill (IRE) (Galileo), Hellbent (I Am Invincible), Impending (Lonhro) and Invader (Snitzel).

As a shuttle sire, Churchill already has runners in Europe and has three winners on the board.
