A nice double for Sakhees Secret at Bath today. He's a classic case of a reasonable stallion that gets his winners, but for whom the market has simply moved on.

Bushranger showing he was never as bad as the market would have us believe.

It could be coincidence but after 20 years of keeping my stats, I still think that progeny of some sires come good at certain times of year. Kyllachy has had a flurry of winners including the last at Musselburgh last night at 16/1 and he now leads on 42. The other sires in the winners recently are Mastercraftsman (11 in May) and Monsieur Bond (27 for the year) who is well on target to beat his previous best of 49 in 2011. A younger sire getting a lot of winners is Fastnet Rock, yet another Danehill, who is now on 23 for 2016. The effect of softer turf instead of AW on Galileo offspring is even more dramatic this year with just one win in Jan-March compared to 21 in April and May. Cape Cross has been rather quiet since a fast start in January but his peak months are often July and August so expect his offspring to start winning soon.

Two more for Mastercraftsman today from 5 runners.
Report The Gotchee May 29, 2016 10:36 AM BST
Good old FASTNET ROCK covered 376 mares in 2012 and 2013 @ A$ 275,000.00  a pop = A$103,400,000. 00.  It would be embarrassing to publish the amount of prize money won by his progeny.
MASTERCRAFTSMAN covered 313 mares in 2012 and 2013 and thanks to the Grey Gatsby and Kingston Hill,he now commands a fee of €35,000.00.
Report sageform May 29, 2016 11:41 AM BST
My reason for mentioning Mastercraftsman was that his total between Jan 1 and April 30 was 10. From May 1 to May 28 it was 13. Nothing to do with stud fee or the number of foals but your data is interesting. There must be an awful lot of them that are not winning or not racing in GB. Both of yesterdays winners were 3yo's over 12 furlongs which is perhaps surprising for a son of Danehill Dancer. Carnachy is his highest rated offspring to have run in GB this season (shame she didn't run yesterday) and I can only see 2 that have won over a mile, the rest 10 furlongs plus.

Kyllachy 52 including Twilight Son today.

"Whats going one here sageform"?

This is not good enough for our reputable Stud Farm.
Why don't you do a list for stallions that can sire winners who are slow and  win races at Royal Ascot at a distance of over 2 miles.

Chalk up one more for Acclimation yesterday with Marsha.

That may have not been the best renewal of that race ever but she bolted up.  Jockey was quoted in the RP saying his arm had gone to sleep by half way she was pulling so hard but she still won with ears pricked.  He described her as an aeroplane :-)  Lets hope she is more Typhoon than Cessna :-)

Gotchee, if I was O'Brien and Coolmore I would not be unhappy with my stallion called Galileo. He may not get many all weather winners but you need to win 20 of those to get the same prize money as one at Royal Ascot. He has double the prize money of Sea The Stars who is currently second in the official table and 6 progeny rated 120 on RPR this season to date. My stats are deliberately based on a very different basis in order to show that relatively unfashionable sires do produce a lot of winners at a lower level while some expensive ones don't. Bushranger and Monsieur Bond continue to outperform their price but sadly the former is now in Turkey!.

the MB strike rate does look quite impressive. He had a little spell a few years ago when he got his fee up to £5k and covered a fair few mares. I assume we will see this feed into your stats in the next year or two. My opinion of him is that he doesn't get precocious types and hence he is slipping off the radar a little. If he can get a nice winner or two this year he is right up my street.
