The Group 1 Hong Kong Cup winner kicked off the year with a two year-old Stakes winner, courtesy of Jyoti and father- son training team, Tony and Calvin McEvoy.

As his winners and reputation grows, so does the size of his books. He covered his biggest book of mares – 134 – last year and 98 the year before.

Not only does he get great results on the track, but the demand in the sale ring should also not be underestimated with his progeny averaging $100,000 at the major sales in 2020.

Statistics don’t lie and they reveal his figures are better than Zoustar and Dundeel (same season) for stakes performers to winners.

It’s just another reason why the stallion continues to be in demand.

He continues to share an outstanding fertility rate with Swettenham Stud’s stallions.

As well as having Jyoti as a 2yo stakes winner in the most recent season, Assertive Approach notched up two Listed victories for Akeed Mofeed last racing season.
