The explosive Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner and More Than Ready look-a-like Pluck made an immediate impact with his first crop selling to $100k. Following in his sire’s footsteps, Pluck averaged almost 6 times service fee ($61k for his first yearling offerings) at Magic Millions, a sale which saw More Than Ready average $61,500 with his first yearlings prior to being crowned Champion First Season sire.

This success at the yearling sales has continued and in 2018 his yearlings sold up to $380,000. In fact, all of his yearlings sold in 2018 in New Zealand and Australia averaged $51,346.15, which is over 7.7 times his current service fee.

Pluck now has four crops of racing age and is becoming renowned for breeding toughness, soundness, versatility and a straight-forward, trainable attitude into his progeny. A great breed to race horse, Pluck’s average progeny earnings are over 4.6 times service fee.

With an international pedigree, which is an outcross for Danehill line mares, it is not surprising to see that the demand for Pluck’s progeny is widespread. He has already sired winners in eight different countries.
