North American foal statistics announced

THE North American Jockey Club has reported that 3,130 stallions covered 49,404 mares in North America during 2009, according to statistics compiled up until September 8 this year.

These matings have resulted in 27,233 live foals being reported to the Jockey Club on Live Foal Reports received as of September 8.

The reporting of live foals this year is down 14.2 per cent compared to at this point last year, when The Jockey Club had received 31,727 reports of live foals.

Medaglia d'Oro, sire of last year's champion three-year-old filly Rachel Alexandra, ishas the largest number of live foals this year, with 163. His produce result from the covering of 205 mares, hence a live-foal rate of 80 per cent.

The estimated final tally of 30,000 would be the fewest in a foal crop since the 28,809 in 1976.The registered foal crop projection takes into account that not all live foals become registered.

In addition to the 27,233 live foals of 2010 reported up until September 8, The Jockey Club had also received 5,138 No Foal Reports for the 2010 foaling season.
