Journeyman Stud's Wildcat Heir took over the top spot on the Florida's general sire list with a big Oct. 8-9 weekend. The 11-year-old stallion finished 2010 in a similar spot and was the only Florida sire with over $4 million in progeny earnings that year, with $4,584,404. With $3,708,532 to his credit to date this year, he is on pace to eclipse last year's mark.
Wildcat Heir was boosted to the top on the strength of a pair of allowance winners and John Johny Jak's second place finish in the $150,000 Oak Tree Mile (G2).
Banner Cat was a length and a half winner in a 5 1/2-furlong allowance contest worth $27,000 at Zia Park on Oct. 9, while No Good Deed won the lion's share of a $34,000 purse going six furlongs at Hawthorne Racecourse in Chicago.
John Johny Jak is already a two-time stakes winner in 2011, taking the $99,000 Harry F. Brubaker S. at Del Mar on Aug. 24 and the $50,000 Carterista S. on Apr. 24 at Gulfstream Park. The 4-year-old is Wildcat Heir's leading earner on the year with $157,971 to his credit.
