It’s 20 All

The race to be the most successful sire of Australian 2YO winners this season is being fought in Queensland with Spirit of Boom (Eureka Stud)  and Better Than Ready (Lyndhurst Stud) going head to head with only weeks of this season to run.

Sires With Winners - Friday July 1

Here is the full list of 53 stallions which had winners throughout Australasia today with winners and result details.

Corfe Castle Makes it 18 for Better Than Ready

Lyndhurst Stud Farm's Better Than Ready countered the challenge of Spirit of Boom in the race for individual 2yo winners when the Trent and Toby Edmonds trained Corfe Castle opened his winning account in the Whisper Paper Maiden Plate (1100m) for colts and gelding at Doomben on Wednesday.

Is This Your Price Point? $24,200 to $27,500

Our next chapter in the Price Point series of stories looks at a group of a dozen stallions that includes four first season horses and the stallion that has sired more 2YO winners this season than any other.

Who Wants to Breed a 2YO Winner?

Apache Chase - First Group 1 for Desleigh Forster and Better Than Ready

The day's biggest cheer at Eagle Farm was reserved for Desleigh Forster after Apache Chase credited the hugely popular trainer with a maiden Group 1 triumph in the Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m).
