Oratorio third in World Rankings
Avontuur’s world-class new sire Oratorio has consistently been building an increasingly impressive resume over the past few season.
The champion’s latest accomplishment is to number an equal third on the world’s leading sire of black type winners during 2012.
This places Oratorio in such elite company, as his 12 stakes winners this season puts him above such outstanding stallions as champion Japanese sire Deep Impact (11), leading US sire War Front (11), and Oasis Dream (10).
He is also equal to such wonderful sires as Dubawi and triple champion US sire Giant’s Causeway, both of whom, like Oratorio have been represented by 12 stakes winners this year.
