This price point has dropped in numbers from previous years with many of the sires previously in this category either moving up or down.

The only two proven sires remaining are Spirit of Boom (Sequalo) and Shalaa (IRE) (Invincible Spirit) , who are very different in terms of pedigree and profile, but have something in common other than their fee in both being capable of producing plentiful 2YO winners.

The oldest progeny of Shalaa are 3YO’s, while Spirit of Boom is a well established sire, whose first Group I winner Jonker is off to stud this spring.

Second Season

Two sires to mention and both are Group I winning 2YO’s, King’s Legacy winning both the Group I ATC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) and Champagne Stakes (1600m), while Tagaloa won the Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

King's Legacy, click for more information.

King’s Legacy was a $1.4million Magic Millions yearling and is by champion sire Redoute’s Choice from the family of outstanding sire Not a Single Doubt, so unquestionably has a stallion’s pedigree.

Tagaloa

Tagaloa was a $300,000 Magic Millions yearling and was conceived in Japan being by Champion Sprinter and Japanese Horse of the Year Lord Kanaloa from winning Heart’s Cry mare Vasilissa, a daughter of Group III winning Pivotal mare Penkenna Princess, who was also second in the G1 Irish Thousand Guineas.

King’s Legacy was the busiest first season sire in Australia last spring covering 212 mares at a fee of $33,000 and remains at that price, while Tagaloa covered 148 mares at $33,000 and drops to $30,250.
