As summer racing swings into full gear, more and more two year olds are hitting the track. After only a few months of "baby races," some freshman stallions have already proven that they are big hitters.
Thoroughbred Times Sire Tracker is keeping track of the industry's most promising new sires, and it's time to preview them.
So without further ado, here's the top-five freshman sires through July 4, according to Thoroughbred Times.
Note: Thoroughbred Times only keeps track of starters in the United States, Canada, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, England, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, United Arab Emirates and Uruguay (information straight from the top of the Sire List page). If a stallion has winners in other countries, it is not noted unless the information was reported on as well.
