Fastnet Rock Goes Top Of The Class

Wednesday, 4th September 2013

Courtesy of several top stakes performances last weekend headlined by superstar mare Atlantic Jewel in the Gr1 Memsie Stakes, 2011-12 Australian Champion Sire Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) has wrested early control of the Australian General Sires' Premiership. Fastnet Rock's progeny earnings of $800,130 have lifted him $209,475 clear of Darley's reigning champion Australian sire Exceed And Excel, who has earnings of $590,655. Fastnet Rock's other notable performers were Fast 'n' Rocking who claimed the Gr3 McNeil Stakes and Australian Cup winner Super Cool who resumed with an excellent placing in the Memsie. Rounding out the top five stallions are Commands ($588,885), Redoute's Choice ($556,265) & More Than Ready ($534,212).
