Scat Daddy fans might dispute that but only a small sample racing in GB and Ireland. Of current stallions, Dark Angel, Kodiac and Exceed and Excel are all producing consistent quality sprinters with Acclamation close behind. Oasis Dream had a couple of dominant years but is back in the pack these days. Zebedee is showing promise from the younger sires.

carravagio was very luck to beat harry angel in the commonwealth cup, no doubt scat daddy has been producing some very good sprinters,
will be looking forward to when muhaarar's 2yo's hit the track, damsire cadeaux genereux was obviously a massive influence pedigree wise for the speed of harry angel, didn't really know that horse, has produced some good types through its broodmares. sprinter stallions are my favs. dark angel has diamond jubilee/ july cup double winning horse, first horse to win two nunthorpes and now a 3yo
winner of the july cup, want to start following a first season sire, so I can gain a valuable insight to the progeny, best way is too
start right from the beginning. sometimes if they get off to slow starts, its unimportant, you know most of them will end up winning
eventually. lot of different ways to exploit the angles, not always just about finding the winners. think muhaarar should get a group 1 winning sprinter in his first crop hopefully.

Society Rock and Havana Gold are the only first season sires to make any impact in GB so far this season.

yes society rock is having a good season, he was very precocious as a 2yo and has that essential group 1 winning race track record,
no doubt he was the number 1 pick to follow this season, and as you know it was lethal force that was beating him on the race track as he was getting older, smashing the track records in the process, but to compare those two sprinters, lethal force was the late developer and society rock was nearly winning 2nd in a july cup aged 3. now id like to think lethal force will be able to pass on its
attributes eventually (speed), given the right matings. seems that society rocks progeny have hit the ground running just like their sire. also think that society rock has had the better mares of the two of them in the first crops, not only was he cheaper, but he
had an overall more attractive, is the word I'm looking for PAGE, its a real shame hes gone now,

wasn't really ready for the season, so didn't give much thought to the first season sires this year, my favourite family is the dark angel bloodline, so lethal force was always going to be of interest, thinking about it now, society rock would of been the natural choice for the number one to follow, and I also think that the breeders made it their number one choice too (sprinters), and they have spent lot of their working lives thinking about these things, think you are seeing that knowledge played out on the race courses this season.

forgive me for rambling on, don't want to sound like I know it all, actually know very little about breeding and matings, but think understand enough for whats important for my needs. just don't always put enough thought or work into things.

will the rise of dark angel as a broodmare sire start to gather pace in the next few years, we have seen Havana grey this season
performing very well this season, whos dam incidentally was a goodwood winner herself.
