Allegretta Founded a phenomenal modern family

With the news that Galileo has collected his sixth European sires’ championship in 2014 with progeny earnings of $US18.6m for the year, LES YOUNG takes this timely look at the remarkable record of his dam Urban Sea and second dam Allegretta.

Broadwater Thoroughbreds

MIKE and Kate Fleming’s Broadwater Thoroughbreds, in the heart of the Hunter Valley’s thoroughbred breeding country, will present a quality, 16-strong draft at this year’s Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale. Although this is only the fourth draft taken to the Easter auction under the Broadwater Thoroughbreds banner, the stud’s record is an enviable one.

Identifying Sires

MOST leading broodmare sires of today were prominent sires of winners in the recent past and some are still active. 

Predicting Stallions who will succeed as broodmare sires

WE BEGAN began this predictive series in Bluebloods in 2009 and each year since we have suggested 12 stallions whose daughters, subject to other qualities, are worth considering if you are looking to buy a future star producer of winners. Most leading broodmare sires of today were, or still are, among the most successful sires of winners as they generally receive good opportunities when retired from the track and take to stud strong female pedigrees.
