The Jockey Club has finally released the statistics for the 2009 breeding season. The summary information is available at this page.

There is a link from that summary to the statistics for covering sires that can be accessed by clicking “Publications & Resources.” The two links of interest for our purposes are at the bottom of the P&R page and are labelled “Report of Mares Bred” and “Breeding Statistics.”

Choosing the first of these allows the reader to click on the first letter of the stallion’s name and read through a list of stallions’ covering activity this spring.

Choosing the second option allows the reader to click on a list of foaling years and then select the stallion’s initial to view his 2008 coverings, in-foal numbers, and resulting live foals and percentages, for instance.

The statistics are food for thought.
