TesioPower 10 – new edition is superb!


The UK publication “Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder incorporating Pacemaker” publishes a very interesting section at the back which they call “Data Book” – this includes a set of stats called “Global Sires”. The March edition has Captain Al as joint 2nd leading sire in the world by number of black type horses this season, also joint 2nd by number of graded stakes horses and also joint 3rd by black type winners and by graded/group stakes winners. He is linked with the likes of the Exceed and Excel, Giant’s Causeway, Encosta de Lago etc.

At home he remains the leading sire of 2yo’s by stakes, winners and races won. He is a strong contender for championship honours this season.

Currently lying 2nd on the overall Leading Sires log by stakes, he leads this field by number of winners (20 ahead of his nearest rival) and by number of races won (33 more than any other sire) and he is 3rd leading sire by % of stakes winners and with 7 stakes winners he is 2nd leading sire according to the Sporting Posts log.

Freeman - Leading Sire by Stakes

He is also joint leading sire of 3yo’s by number of individual stakes winners and 2nd on the 3yo sire’s log by stakes but also head of this bunch by number of individual winners (9 more than any other sire) and by number of races won and he is also joint 3rd leading sire here by % of stakes winners. He is joint-leader on the 3yo log with Western Winter by % winners/runners with a staggering 56%.

Count Dubois is the joint leading sire with Western Winter on the 3yo log by % of stakes winners.


Hey everyone – have you seen what Jallad is doing as a broodmare sire? The past week alone his daughters scored 3 more winners and at least that many placed runners. His 11% stakes winners places him ahead of Elliodor and Northern Guest who head this field overall. Jallad is way ahead of any of the living contenders on the broodmare sires list. I won’t bore you with repetition of past praise – I just want to remind you – if you have daughters of Jallad in your mare band – use them well. He is a perfect foil for all of the Northern Dancer and Mr Prospector blood in our gene pool. His sire Blushing Groom is a well-known pick-up for both of those sire lines. He outcrosses superbly as well.

TesioPower 10 – the new program

We have been using our new TesioPower extensively and really enjoy the new features, presentation and speed of operation. So many new features that make viewing pedigrees that much easier. If you are a past user and want to upgrade to the new version online it will cost you £205 and £225 if you want to order a hard copy. No question that it’s better to have the hard copy in case anything goes wrong or if you want to add it to your office and laptop. If you are not a past user the program will cost £ 445 – please call Clinton in our office to place your order – 021 418 0566.

NEW OFFICES – Telephone and contact detail remains the same

Having spent the past year renting in Sovereign Quay we are delighted to report that we are moving offices early next week. We have purchased a new home for our offices in Victoria Junction in Prestwich Street (right opposite Beluga Restaurant). We have visitors parking inside the courtyard and hope that you will pop in sometime. We have asked Telkom to move the phones across BUT from past experience this could be problematic so if we are offline for a few days please contact me on my cell 082 777 8117 at any time.
