Busiest Sires in Britain and Ireland for 2019
Tara Madgwick - Monday November 4

Statistics released by Weatherbys this week reveal the busiest thoroughbred sires in Britain and Ireland this year and while jumps sires fill the first four places on the list, the most popular flat sire is a first season horse that has shuttled to Victoria this spring in Sioux Nation (USA).

Sioux Nation was the busiest flat sire in Britain and Ireland for 2019A member of the powerful Coolmore team that stand 12 of the 19 sires to cover 200 plus books of mares, Sioux Nation is currently in Australia at Swettenham Stud.

A Group I winning juvenile by Scat Daddy, Sioux Nation is the first son of his ill-fated sire to stand in Victoria.

Juddmonte Farm’s Kingman has had a sensational year on the track and covered 235 mares, which is by far his biggest book to date.

Ballylinch Stud’s Lope de Vega was also in the 200 club covering 207 mares and with his sire Shamardal now virtually a private sire for Godolphin, he’s probably the next best thing.

Galileo’s champion son Churchill is leaving some lovely foals here in Australia this spring and he too was in the 200 club for Coolmore.
