Wildcat Heir continued to show why he is one of the country's best young stallions, leading all second crop sires in progeny earnings and number of winners in 2010. The Journeyman stallion also finished the year as the leading overall sire in Florida. This comes on the heels of a great year in 2009, when he set a world record with 39 winning 2-year-olds.
Wildcat Heir's offspring earned $4,584,404 on the year. His leading earner was the 3-year-old filly Derwin's Star, winner of the $400,000 Charles Town Oaks and third in the Grade 2 Delaware Oaks. Another sophomore filly, Richiegirlgonewild, won the Grade 3 Old Hat S. at Gulfstream Park. Another filly, 2-year-old Breathoffreshheir, captured the Jersey Juvenile S. and has already given her sire his first stakes winner of 2011 when she won the Ruthless S. at Aqueduct on Jan. 2.
With 89 winners on the year, Wildcat Heir easily outdistanced his competition, with the nearest competitor recording 75. He also easily topped the Florida general sire list as the only stallion in the state with progeny earnings over $4 million. His eight stakes winners was also tops in the state.
Wildcat Heir will once again stand the upcoming season at Journeyman, where his 2011 fee will be $10,000 LFS&N.
