So Who’s the Leading First-Crop Sire for 2020: Jamie McCalmont



My leading sire for this year would be Nyquist. I was connected with him in my role with Paul Reddam. It’s quite rare that you see a two-year-old win three Grade I races and then come back and win the Derby as an unbeaten horse.

My number two pick is Air Force Blue. He was a very good two-year-old in Ireland and War Front seems to be a good sire of sires. My favorite horse at the sale at OBS March was Hip 27, a son of Air Force Blue out of Dreamy Maiden. He ended up selling for $390,000.
