2012 California Freshman Sire Contest Stallions
Overview | Rules | Stallions | Entry Form | Contest News | Contest History

Stallions are eligible for the 2012 Don Engel Memorial California Freshman Sire Contest if they originally entered stud in North America for the 2009 breeding season, and if they are reported as actively standing in California for the 2012 breeding season. The oldest reported foals of these stallions are 2-year-olds of 2012.

Listed below are some of the California stallions who meet this criteria, according to statistics published by The Jockey Club, California Thoroughbred Breeders Association, Bloodstock Research Information Services and other sources. Although every effort is made to ensure accuracy, contest eligibility is not restricted to these stallions, nor should this list be considered wholly accurate or complete; it is merely supplied as a guide. Contest participants are encouraged to perform their own independent research, and may wish to rank stallions on their entry form who might not be listed here, but who might otherwise be eligible.

Prizes will be awarded to the contestants who finish first through third overall, based on points allocated to the top five California-based first-crop sires by progeny earnings accrued in 2012. The year-end list published by "The Blood-Horse" in January 2013 will serve as the official statistical resource for the purpose of this contest.

The information provided below for each stallion includes: Name, Year of Birth, Sire, Dam, Broodmare Sire, 2012 Location Within California, Career Race Record (starts-wins-seconds-thirds/lifetime earnings and best race performance) and Number of Live Foals of 2010/2-Year-Olds of 2012, as reported to The Jockey Club and other sources.

Note: The deceased California stallion Crossword will be posthumously represented by his first 2-year-olds in 2012. Although Crossword might be included on the 2012 freshman sire list compiled by "The Blood-Horse," he is not actively standing the 2012 breeding season in California; therefore, his progeny earnings will not be eligible for this contest and he will not be allocated any contest points, according to the rules posted on this website.
