Bill Oppenheim has just tabled a piece in the TDN on sire power on both sides of the Atlantic and regular followers of these columns will know of our own preoccupation with the shifting balance. Meanwhile though, just “dig” the piece on Galileo. I for one, never thought we’d see the likes of Sadler’s Wells again, yet within a single generation, it seems his son already has the beating of him. Thank goodness, our intuitions worked for once. We have six of his daughters at Summerhill.

“THE TOP SIRES : Empire Maker is back in the lead on the North American general sire list with a month to go in the season, with Speightstown over $300,000 ahead of Giant’s Causeway for second spot. Tapit is in fourth spot, with $8.6 million. But when you look at the TDN’s Leading Sire List, you do see the overall 1-2-3 are Euros Galileo, Montjeu, and Dubawi. Those numbers for Galileo are just spectacular: 326 runners - which is a lot: an amazing 36 black-type winners this year, and 61 black-type horses - one in every five of his runners. An equally huge 24 of these are group/graded stakes winners, and 44 are group/graded stakes horses, with 7 Group/Grade 1 winners.

Maybe we’ve not had the technology up ‘til now, but I never remember seeing a sire put up those kind of numbers.”
