“We absolutely love pricing up this market, which would be impossible to price were it not for Weatherbys' Stallion Book, Global Stallions app and particularly their Return of Mares,” said Fitzdares Head of Horseracing Sam Hockenull. “It was not hard to pick out Sioux Nation as a short-priced favourite given the huge numerical advantage he has. “We hope in the coming weeks to price up a 'total prize money' market for the first time. In turn, this will hopefully offer a much more competitive market.”
