“It’s difficult to comprehend, but the prize money generated by runners
bred at Northern Farm is very nearly R800million.”

We just received the year end breeding statistics from our friends and fellow investors in Admire Main, Katsumi Yoshida’s Northern Farm. It’s difficult to comprehend, but the prize money generated by runners bred at Northern Farm is very nearly R800million, while Katsumi’s brother Teruya’s Shadai Farm lies second, with earnings not far short of R700million. The family’s Shiraoi Farm ranks third, with almost a quarter of a billion in stakes. Between them, they have generated close to R1.7billion in total stakes, and to put that into perspective, while they obviously have fewer runners, Sheikh Mohammed’s Darley Japan Farm, has earnings of “only” R90million.

In the general sires log, all ten of the Top 10 stand at the Yoshida family’s Shadai Stallion Station (we thought Coolmore were dominant in Europe!), while eight of the Top 10 juvenile sires (all eight of the Top 8) are also Shadai inmates. Interestingly, 7 of the Top 10 sires in the nation are sons of the great Sunday Silence, and in the light of the success of Japanese runners across the world, that’s about the best alarm signal South Africans can get. There’s only one source in our country, and he’s right here at Summerhill.
