Is This Your Price Point? $16,500 PROVEN

Tara Madgwick - Thursday June 24

The Breednet Price Point stories have been super popular and are now archived on the site, so will remain a great source of information and reference as we move towards the breeding season and with 22 horses priced at $16,500 there is huge competition in this sector.

As we slide below the $22,000 point, let’s not forget that the three stallions topping the current Australian General Sires List by earnings all started their stud careers at fees below $20,000.

Front runner Written Tycoon went to stud as a Group II winner at a fee of $8,250, Not a Single Doubt was a Listed winner priced at $13,750 and I Am Invincible was a Group III winner starting off at $11,000.


That trio now feature in the top Price Point story, upwards of $110,000!

Previously we have looked at $17,250 - $19,800 – click to read.

The proven sires in this price point include some well exposed Group I producing sires as well as younger stallions such as Astern, Divine Prophet and Star Turn, whose oldest progeny are two year-olds and we will deal with them first.

Yearling averages are for sales where there were three or more sold.
