PIVOTAL reached the milestone of 150 Stakes winners as a stallion when his three-year-old daughter HEREBY, out of Julian Richmond-Watson’s Oaks winner LOOK HERE, powered to victory in the Listed Noel Murless Stakes. Pivotal’s impressive roll call features a total of 30 Group 1 winners, including the likes of SIYOUNI, FARHH, KYLLACHY, PEERESS, CHORIST, SARISKA and AVILIUS.
Whilst Pivotal is still going strong as a sire, he is also sweeping all before him as a broodmare sire. In 2018, he was the broodmare sire of an unprecedented 10 individual Group 1 winners worldwide. Pivotal’s tally as a broodmare sire for 2019 was lifted to 8 individual Group 1 winners when ONE MASTER (Fastnet Rock), who is out of ENTICING (Pivotal), retained her crown in the Prix de la Foret for William Haggas and Lael Stables. Dual-Group 1 scorers ADVERTISE (Showcasing), HERMOSA (Galileo) and MAGICAL (Galileo) headline the 2019 Group 1 winners out of Pivotal mares, meaning he is the broodmare sire of the winners of 11 Group 1 races so far this year.
