Best Season Thus Far for Not A Single Doubt

Thursday, 3rd August 2017

Not A Single Doubt has ended the 2016/17 season in fifth spot with $11.7 million prize money, slightly less than the $12.5 million that secured him the runner-up position behind Street Cry last year.  However, in terms of top-level racetrack performance and sale-ring results, 2016/17 has been Not A Single Doubt’s best ever season – so far. Fourteen winners of 25 Australian stakes races (17 Group races) include four Group 1 winners in four states, at distances from 1000 to 1600 metres: 3YO Extreme Choice (MVRC Moir S. G1), 4YOs Scales Of Justice (WATC Railway S. G1) & Secret Agenda (SAJC Robert Sangster S. G1) and 5YO Clearly Innocent (BRC Kingsford-Smith Cup G1). Now with 43 stakes winners (7 at Group 1 level) on his CV and a full book of mares at his new fee of $88,000, Not A Single Doubt has come a very long way from the winter of 2010. As Arrowfield’s Bloodstock Manager Jon Freyer says: “Not A Single Doubt is a wonderful Arrowfield home-bred success story and we’re very grateful to all the breeders who have supported him, the buyers who’ve turned that support into profitable sales, and the  owners, trainers and jockeys who have given his sons and daughters their racing opportunities.” Freyer continued: “He’s also a great reminder that we need to be very careful not to judge young stallions prematurely. Despite being an outstanding sire of juveniles, it took him 708 days to leave his first stakes winner!”
