Power leads Irish First Season Sire Premiership

26 Jun 2016

Exciting Cambridge Stud shuttler Power (Oasis Dream) is a clear leader on Ireland's First Season Sire Premiership with his progeny earnings being nearly double that of the second-leading stallion.

The headline act for Power in Ireland has been Peace Envoy (Power ex Hoh My Darling, by Dansili) who has had two wins, two seconds and a fourth from five starts to date.

Peace Envoy won on debut at the start of April and became his sire's first black type winner when successful in the Rochestown Stakes-LR (6f) at Naas at the end of May.

Since then Peace Envoy, who is trained by Aidan O'Brien, has had a fourth placing in Group Two company at Royal Ascot and backed up at the Curragh last Saturday to run second in the Railway Stakes-Gr.2 (6f) back home at The Curragh.

Power's latest figures reveal 17 runners for 8 individual winners and a further placed horse.

Power's 2016 fee at Cambridge Stud has been set at $8,000 plus gst (LFG).
