Patinack Farm stallions Casino Prince (Flying Spur) and Husson (Hussonet) appear to be having their own little duel at the top of the first-season sires table.
The pair have made excellent starts to their stud careers with the pair currently filling the top two places on the Australian First-season Sires‚Äô Table.
Casino Prince heads the list with four winners and prizemoney earnings of $292,100 ahead of Husson, who has five winners and earnings of $215,000.
Husson‚Äôs total of five individual winners is the best of any stallion in Australia and he and Casino Prince are the only first-season stallions to have sired stakes winners.
Casino Prince is the sire of the exciting All Too Hard who scored a commanding win in the VRC Sires‚Äô Produce Stakes (Gr 2) over 1400m at Flemington last Saturday and Husson with the filly Hussousa, winner of the Gimcrack Stakes and runner-up in the Silver Slipper Stakes (Gr 2).
All Too Hard is a half-brother to the unbeaten world champion sprinter Black Caviar (Bel Esprit) and is unbeaten in two starts after selling for $1.025 million to the bid of Patinack Farm at last year’s Easter Yearling Sale.
