Journeyman stallion Hear No Evil leads all sires in the world by A-Runner Index, Bill Oppenheimh has reported in Thoroughbred Daily News.
 
Along with his Journeyman stablemate Wildcat Heir, Hear No Evil was one of just four Florida stallions cited by Oppenheim as “Good Value Sires” for 2011. Both Hear No Evil and Wildcat Heir have just two crops at the races.
 
Hear No Evil further also leads all North American sires by APEX Ratings for two-year-olds and for three-year-olds. The son of Carson City has made the most of limited opportunity, producing an astounding 7.50 A-Runner Index from his first 20 starters. His 5.71 two-year-old ABC Index and his 4.03 three-year-old ABC Index are tops by far among all U.S. sires. APEX Ratings measure the ability of a stallion to sire money-making runners.
 
Hear No Evil has now sired 10 winners from 14 starters, two stakes winners and one stakes placed runner, for average earnings per starter of $92,822. This figure ranks him in the top half of one percent of all sires. He is perhaps best known for the 2010 Classic colt Jackson Bend ($822,920).
 
Wildcat Heir, meanwhile, racked up a 3.67 ABC Index for his three-year-olds last year, and was the Champion Second Crop Sire in North America and Florida’s Leading General Sire for 2010. A study in contrasts, Wildcat Heir bred more mares than any stallion in Florida in 2010.
 
Hear No Evil will stand the 2011 season at Journeyman Stud for $3,500, payable when foal stands and nurses. Wildcat Heir is standing for $10,000, stand and nurse.
