Art Major, Safely Kept and Fake Left, three stallions who have had a profound influence on breeding in Australia over the past decade, were recipients of IRT sponsored Globe Derby Awards for the 2011/12 season.

Art Major, Alabar Bloodstock's fully booked sire, captured awards in six different categories. He was the overall leading juvenile sire with $3,228,671, the leading 2YO sire for stakes ($1,447,062) and winners (53), the leading sire of three-year-olds for stakes ($1,781,609) and winners (82) and the leading overall sire for winners (225).

The champion son of Artsplace has been the leading sire of two-year-olds in three of the four seasons his stock has raced in this country and has twice topped the three-year-old list.

Safely Kept, Art Major's Alabar studmate and thrice leading sire of two-year-olds, was the premier broodmare sire of three-year-olds with his daughters leaving the winners of $1,165,557. This was his fifth award as a broodmare sire.

Fake Left, who stood at Alabar late in his career, was the leading broodmare sire of two-year-olds -- winners and stakemoney -- for the third year on end and the premier broodmare sire of three-year-old winners for the third time in the last four years.

Fake Left's daughters left 30 individual two-year-old winners and 54 three-year-olds in the closing season.
