BY A LEADING WORLD SIRE
MONSUN – Gr1 winner and Champion Sire “His statistics are the kind for which stallion owners would figuratively donate their right arm. With 78% winners to runners from 757 foals from 17 crops, Monsun is credited with siring 112 Group/Listed winners, that’s 17.5% Black Type winners, but I am more impressed with his total of 65 Group winners, which
include 22 individual Gr1 winners”.
