In this new series we ask agents and others who book a lot of mares for their clients which sires might be flying slightly under the radar in this breeding season. Who might be getting overlooked in the rush for the new, hot thing? Read on.
SUPER SAVER, WinStar, $30,000
Super Saver is still a horse I feel can make a big comeback and impact. He had three legitimate Grade I stakes winners in his first crop. His $30,000 fee is half of what he was in 2017. Super Saver had 24 2-year-old winners in 2018 and a $117,000 yearling average. These 2-year-olds hitting the racetrack were from his $50,000 crop and the yearlings going to sales in 2019 were his best-bred crop at $65,000. He has gone through his lull with his third and fourth crops on the racetrack that many stallions now have to overcome and he is primed for a major up-tick with these 3-year-olds and a strong group of 2-year-olds hitting the track this summer. Plus, he has the numbers to keep going with 154, 154 and 127 mares bred the past three seasons. I think where a stallion stands is important and WinStar has delivered time and time again.
