About time we had a fresh start. So for newbies, I post a list of sires in order of flat race wins in GB (not Northern Ireland or the Republic. In 2020 Kodiac was top from Dark Angel and Dubawi. So far after 26 flat races in 2021 we have a 26 way tie! No sire has yet reached 2.

There is a lot of chance involved at such an early stage! Dubawi hardly had any before June last year but has 4 already. Probably because a lot of well bred horses are still waiting for their first and second runs that would normally have been put away by now.

chance is my favourite variable, kingman got his first winner in the oppenheimer colours, will need a lot more 3yo's for lope de vega this season, considering he only had 36 2yo's
last year, plus an above average crop of 2yo's, theres no way of knowing that will be the case

racing post star performer, the favourite was a showcasing and didnt inspire confidence in that field at the price and there was a lope de vega outsider, beaten 15 lengths on
debut, only left the winner in the optimum price range, don't have a betting tank at the moment, hopefully things will be ready for the start of may, lope de vega finally had
his first winner, the drift on the runner up pistoletto who was well backed when the markets opened the day before, meant the F/C paid well, crossed  my mind to post it on here,
ive done tipping threads for years and there is no upside. more enjoyment picking your own winners.

arion pedigrees are not updating their GB tables yet for 2021, maybe they wait until the official start of the flat season, had a good idea for next years start of the season,
list of the top 50 stallions, as each stallion gets his first winner, cross that off the list until there are no more left, impossible to post on a thread too much typing,
lot easier to write a list on paper and do it that way, could be very informative and financially rewarding. will try that next year.

Well I suppose if you take a colt retiring at 4 then it is 8 crops of 4yos or above truehonch.

Doesn’t sound as bad perhaps.

Certainly no stars yet for sure and if you are a devotee perhaps you could argue that the first 4 crops didn’t contain many mares that would have helped him out!

I think he will get one or two sire sons as Lethal Force and Gutaifan are prolific winner producers so with the right pedigree background, whatever that is, the odds are in his favour to improve.
