California Freshman Sire Contest History
Overview | Rules | Stallions | Entry Form | Contest News | Contest History

The California Freshman Sire Contest was established in 2003 by Don Engel, the founder and former owner of Thoroughbred Information Agency (TIA) and www.thoroughbredinfo.com. This fun and competitive annual event offers cash and prizes (as well as bragging rights!) to the participants who are able to most accurately predict the leaders among California first-crop sires, based on year-end progeny earnings.

In 2009, the contest was renamed in honor of Don upon his retirement from the Thoroughbred industry.
