APEX: GALILEO REGAINS TOP SPOT
Date: January 9th, 2018
By Bill Oppenheim
In APEX terms, maybe the most amazing thing about Galileo is that he not only has the highest A Runner Index (4.60) among 407 North American and European sires with 200+ year-starters 2011-2017 (a ‘year-starter’ means a horse is counted as one starter for each year it starts, because average-earnings indexes, of which APEX is one, have to be calculated on an annual basis), he also has the highest number of year-starters – 2,119 in the seven-year period, an average of more than 300 starters a year. He has 195 A Runners 2011-2017 (like a year-starter, one horse can be an A Runner more than once) and 412 ABC Runners; Tapit, who is second in both categories, has 112 A Runners and 326 ABC Runners. So Galileo doesn’t just have the highest percentage (9.20%) of A Runners/Runners over a seven-year period, he’s doing it with a higher number of starters than any of the other more than 400 sires. Phenomenal – and phenomenally prolific.
Galileo regains the top spot for the third time in four years, his reign as the top APEX sire (by A Runner Index, which as you know is an improved version of a cumulative average-earnings index) interrupted last year by another Coolmore sire, Uncle Mo, who was the first sire ever to do a lot of things, including having over 200 year-starters (the minimum for inclusion on our top list) and scoring so high by the end of the year his first 3-year-olds raced (2016). It wasn’t just an aberration: at the end of 2017, the year his first 4-year-olds raced, Uncle Mo is still number two, with a 4.49 A Runner Index. Claiborne’s War Front, who was the top APEX sire in 2014, was second to Galileo in 2015, and has been third each of the three subsequent years, now with a 4.30 A Runner Index. Darley’s top two, Dubawi (3.54) in Europe, and Medaglia D’Oro (3.50) in North America, round out the top five by 2011-2017 APEX A Runner Index. The second five consists of: Ireland’s Gilltown Stud’s Sea The Stars (3.28); Adena Springs’ Ghostzapper (3.26); Juddmonte’s veteran Dansili (3.03); Spendthrift’s Into Mischief (2.91), whose last two crops of 3-year-olds and 2-year-olds of 2017 were each bigger than his previous four crops combined but has impressively overcome this statistical disadvantage; and Gainesway’s three-time Leading North American Sire by progeny earnings, Tapit (2.86).
As mentioned we have used 200+ year-starters as the minimum for being rated among all other comparable sires – those with enough numbers to be really significant, we reckon – and Uncle Mo, as mentioned, was the first sire with just his first 3-year-olds to have that many year-starters score so high in the first two seasons his progeny raced. If we had made the threshold 150, Juddmonte’s Frankel, whose first foals were born in 2014 and had his first 3-year-olds in 2017, would have emulated Uncle Mo. Frankel had 161 year-starters through the end of 2017, of which 18 were A Runners, for an A Runner Index of 5.59. He will easily qualify by number of year-starters from now on, so expect to see his name right there among the top five the next time we run lists of the top NA-EU sires with 200+ year-starters. I saw something the other day, might have been in the Racing Post, where they interviewed industry professionals and asked “who is the best son of Galileo”? Amazingly, more people didn’t say Frankel than did, but they must have been asked when they were asleep: Frankel is a top-five stallion, I would say, without the slightest doubt, and is hands-down Galileo’s best son thus far.
The 735 sires which qualified for 2018 APEX ratings at the end of 2017 are the smallest number ever, for the eighth consecutive year. In 2007 there were 1,156 sires which qualified for APEX ratings; even in 2011 there were 1,144. But the decline in the foal crop and the increase in book sizes for the best (and most expensive) stallions have concentrated the numbers, which have fallen 36% in the seven years since 2011.We would also note that 102 of the 735 sires stand or stood in Japan; of those, Shadai’s Deep Impact (4.86) is their perennial number one, with the same firm’s King Kamehameha (3.28) the perennial number two. We separate Japanese sires from NA-EU sires, though, as 98% of the time Japanese horses don’t travel.
