1. Explanation of Table Information and Links

The table in the second section of this article covers the First Season Sires you should expect to see represented by 2yos in the 2007 season. This section provides details on the information in the table and the links from it.

1.1 Table Links

The table provides a link to the 2007 Season page for each sire. This page includes details about :-

  • the sire's racing record, in particular the 2yo season;
  • information about number and average prices achieved with yearlings by the sire sold in Europe in 2006;
  • details of runs by his 2yos during the 2007 British Turf Season (starts in late March);
  • details of debut runs by each 2yo with an onward link that 2yos individual page;
  • and for the majority of sires there is also an onward link to their picture.
  • 1.2 Table Information

    Much of the information in the table is self explanatory but a few items need to be noted. The first column gives the horses name and it's height were available. For example the sire Acclamation is 16 hands high as given in the table. See the glossary section on this site if you require an explanation of the use of 'hands' in denoting a horse's height. The second column gives the sire's own sire.

    The 'Location' column gives the Stud at which the sire stands when in Europe for the most part. Note that many of the Coolmore and Maktoum sires will be 'Shuttle Sires' and will move to the Southern Hemisphere (usually Australia) to cover mares outside of the European (i.e. Northern Hemisphere) breeding season.

    The 'Fee' column usually gives the cost of having a mare covered by the stallion in 2007 currently and not in 2004 when these sires first went to stud (in the Northern Hemisphere)..

    The 'Sales Average/Median' columns give information covering yearlings actually sold at major european sales in 2006. Yearlings which did not reach their reserve price (equals 'Not Sold') or were bought back by their owners (and therefore 'Retained') are not included.

    For those who do not understand the term 'Median' a short description is useful. The Median figure is produced by ranking all the sire's yearling sales in a group from highest to lowest. The 'middle' figure down this ranking is then chosen as the Median figure. If there are an even number of figures in the list the middle two are chosen, added together and divided by two to get the Median. Why bother with a Median figure? The main reason is that averages can be misleading and distorted by a small number of notably high prices. If a sire has 5 yearlings sold, for example, and four sell for 10,000 gns and one sells for 60,000 gns the average figure is 20,000 gns but 80% of his yearlings made much less than that so it is not a representative figure. The median in the example would be a representative 10,000gns. Comparing the Average and Median figures for the sire gives an indication of how 'consistent' the sales prices were (how small the overall range was).
