Adios Alonso leads the way in end of season sire standings

With the final Trial Stakes of the season having been run in Cork yesterday, I’m going to take a little time to reflect on the season just gone this weekend before beginning to preview the National Meeting on Monday. The first thing up is the sire totals for the season.

As I’ve stated on more than one occasion, these tables are only a guide as to what sires have dogs winning Trial Stakes. They don’t tell you how many dogs or litters each particular sire had on the ground. Those statistics will emerge in time (I’m sure Den’s already on it) but for now we only have the raw figures. It should also be borne in mind that even those figures don’t tell you anything about the quality of bitches that each dog has had.

The Figures

Adios Alonso and Kyle James led the way in terms of litters on the ground and it’s no surprise that they lead the way in terms of Trial Stake and Reserve Trial Stake winners this season. Adios Alonso finished the season with 35 winners in total, that’s made up of 22 dogs and 13 bitches. Kyle James has had 32 winners in total, 14 dogs and 18 bitches. Mafi Magic pushed the leading pair the entire season and has had some very useful contenders heading to Powerstown Park.

Some of the younger sires have done very well with limited numbers, Thomas The Tank and Killimor Matey both having very good starts to their careers at stud. In total 30 sires had winners of some description or another this season, with a further 6 sires having offspring coming up just short.
