Too Early To Brag

Over the past week I have seen ads, articles, and blogs praising stallions for their current place on the "Leading Sire" list. Hello people, we are only six days into March. I understand the idea that you must stike while the iron is hot, but we are already a month into breeding season. Most mares half already scheduled a date with the luck guy for this season.

The one that bothers me most is todays current leader Slew City Slew. He is on top of the list with 1.3 million in earnings. That is pretty good for the first week in March. However, Lava Man makes up 1.1 million of the total. Last year Slew City Slew finished the year with 3.2 million in earnings. That placed him 58 on the Leading Sire list. That is repectable, and Lava Man only accounted for a little over $700,000.

Before I step down from my soap box, I have this to say to Airdrie Stud: If this were a two furlong race, you would be the winner, unfortunately, we still have a long way to go.
