Race Of The Decade, #1 - 2008 Meadowlands Pace. 

Art Major has had an outstanding siring record right from the start and continues to produce the elite level age group horses with each crop. In North America he has produced some of the world's best horses including world champion Art Official p3,1:47 ($2,082,885), JF Endofanera  ($2,049,580), Hypnotic Blue Chip 1:47.2 ($1,787,311) , Santanna Blue Chip ($1,666,701) etc. Down Under he is the sire of For A Reason now standing at stud and bred over 100 mares this season, Follow The Stars now at stud and bred 140 mares this season and Sushi Sushi to mention just three. He has consistently produced great colts and fillies and the longevity of their racing careers is a feature. It is not only the stars that he continues to leave that is impressive, it is the consistency in performance that he brings to the table every single year. Hard to find fault with his career as it stands today.

Art Major has made a big impact in Australia and New Zealand right from the start. In Australia he is the sire of over $38 million in progeny earnings and in New Zealand he is the sire of just under $10 million in progeny earnings. In North America Art Major is the sire of over $100 million in progeny earnings.

That is $148,000,000 in progeny earnings throughout the world.

His winners to foals percentages hovering around the 50 to 60% mark is up with the very best achieved in Australasia. Shows no signs of slowing down and continues to serve huge books of mares. He has served over 250 mares each of the last three years in Australia and in New Zealand he has served over 170 for each of the last three years and they are his largest numbers, biggest crops ever in New Zealand.
