Deep Impact was the World’s Leading Stallion by progeny earnings for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017,2018. His eight crops of racing age have collectively earned more than $600 million and won 260 stakes races, and his 10+ per cent stakeswinners/runners is among the best in the world. Most interestingly, this high ratio has been achieved despite only 1.4% of all Japanese races having black-type status - remarkably low in comparison with Great Britain (4.6%), Ireland (10.9%) and Australia (3.1%).
Novara Park stallion Staphanos by Deep Impact was unmatched as one of the best ranked racehorses over four consecutive seasons.
