Marchfield in Thrilling Duel

Canada’s Leading First Crop Sire for 2014

Marchfield son of A.P. Indy

Marchfield (AP Indy) – will he land the title of Canada’s Leading First Crop Sire for 2014

Moutonshoek’s exciting young sire Marchfield is currently fighting to win the title of Canada’s Leading First Crop Sire for 2014.

The son of A P Indy is currently second on the list – but less than $20 000 behind current leader Not Bourbon.
Canada’s leading first crop sire for the year looks set to be decided this weekend, where both Marchfield and Not Bourbon will be represented by runners in the $125 000 Kingarvie Stakes at Woodbine.

Not Bourbon’s representative is Java’s Bourbon, while his rival is the sire of Kingarvie starter Bear At Last.

Marchfield, to date, has been represented by five first crop winners, while Not Bourbon has three to his tally.

Come what may on Saturday, Marchfield has made an outstanding start to stud career – given that he himself earned his two Sovereign Awards as a four and five year old respectively.


Marchfield – a looker

A millionaire sired by Horse Of The Year and champion sire A P Indy (the sire of over 150 stakes winners), Marchfield hails from the hottest male line in North America.

Star A P Indy male line descendants this year include North America’s Champion sire of 2014 Tapit, as well as brilliant Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome – a strong contender for Horse Of The Year honours.

Marchfield shares his sire with such outstanding stallions as Bernardini, Malibu Moon and Pulpit, as well as the highly successful South African stallion Judpot.

From a powerful female line, whose members include successful stallions Boldnesian, Cryptoclearance, Harlan’s Holiday, as well as Ride The Rails (sire of the sensational Candy Ride), Marchfield is out of the top class racemare, and former Broodmare Of The Year Pico Teneriffe.

An exceptionally well bred young stallion, Marchfield’s first three dams are by the breed shaping stallions Red Ransom, Mr Prospector

It is certainly not hard to see what makes Marchfield, whose first South African foals are arriving this season to rave reviews, rates such an exciting young sire!
