Thoroughbred GP Stallion Guides: Haradasun-Honor Code

by Belle Gifft posted 3 weeks 6 days ago

Haradasun
Haradasun is a decent turf mile sire with 3 stakes winners from 50 runners. He has no millionaires, but his average runner earns over $38k, which isn’t bad for a 1,000GP stud fee. His real value may be as a broodmare sire, where with only 26 runners from 7 mares he has one stakes winners and three stakes placed.
The best crosses so far to Haradasun have been to mares by Keys to the City, Held High, and Dawn Approach. The best crosses to his daughters so far have been Pierro, Chautauqua, and Aleksander.

Hartnell
He may be one of the youngest sires, but he is already a big boy on the turf for sure. Hartnell is the sire of 13 stakes winners from only 77 runners, and one of those stakes winners is All of Us Dreamers, who won the Stewards Cup Turf Mile, the Toronto Mile, the Dubai Millennium Mile, and the Pegasus Turf Mile to name a few, then retired with $4.7 million and recently began an impressive stud career. While Hartnell has a meaty $125k in average earnings per runner, All of Us Dreamers’ excessive bankroll skewed it a little. Hartnell is a bargain freak producer at 3,000GP.
Hartnell is the dam sire of only 34 runners from 14 mares, but has three stakes winners from three different daughters, so that is over 20% of his daughters producing stakes horses so far. Their best crosses have been to the sires Lucky Bubbles, Cinematic, and Ain’t Beaten Yet.
Hartnell’s best cross by far, the cross that produced All of Us Dreamers, was to a Frankel mare. Goober, Aleksander, and Perfect Night mares also crossed very well with Hartnell. His best broodmare came from a cross to a Lord Kanaloa mare.
Keep an eye on this boy, he is gunning for Frankel’s spot as the monster turf mile GP sire.

Helmet
Helmet is hard to report on, he has only 20 runners and no stakes winners, and most of his top earning runners were created rather than bred. He seems to sire turf sprinters. He is the dam sire of only 11 runners, no stakes winners. His best cross was to a Pit Road mare, and he has a promising two-year-old from a Lord Kanaloa mare. With his average runner bringing in over $34k, he isn’t a bad deal for 2,000GP.

Hokko Tarumae
Hokko Tarumae is another hard one, he seems to mostly sire turf sprinters and milers. He has only 22 runners and one stakes winner. Many of his top runners, including his only stakes winner, were created rather than bred. His average runner earns over $31k, and since he is only 1,000GP, he could be a good gamble. He is the dam sire of 22 runners and no stakes winners.

Honor Code
Honor Code is a dirt route sire who looks less than impressive so far. In his defense he is still pretty young and untested. He has 32 runners and no stakes winners, and an average earning per runner of over $7k. He is the dam sire of 11 runners, again no stakes horses. For 3,000GP it might be worth waiting to see if he can do better.
