Over the past couple of weeks, we've taken a look at the leaders of different divisions of the American Graded Stakes Standings of 2016. This week, we'll look at broodmare sires.
The stallions that ranked among the top five broodmare sires of AGS winners are familiar names, although a couple may come as a surprise. As he has for the past three years, the venerable A.P. Indy tops the list with 10 individual graded stakes winners. Of that number, three were Grade 1 winners – A.P. Indian (Alfred G. Vanderbilt, Forego), Joking (Vosburgh), and Lukes Alley (Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap).
Unbridled's Song finished in the second spot with eight individual graded stakes winners. Of those, one was a G1 winner – Tourist (Breeders' Cup Mile, Fourstardave).
Storm Cat had seven individual graded stakes winners in 2016, placing him in third. Two of those winners had G1 victories to their credit – Weep No More (Central Bank Ashland) and Dancing Rags (Darley Alcibiades).
Seeking the Gold's six individual graded stakes winners placed him in fourth. The son of Mr. Prospector was represented by three-time G1 winner Lord Nelson (Triple Bend, Bing Crosby, Santa Anita Sprint Championship).
Two stallions finished tied for fifth, both with five individual graded stakes winners – Grand Slam and Victory Gallop.
