American Ideal has rightly earned a reputation as the leading sire of quality Cup winners

In November 2023 the win of Magnificent Storm in the WA Pacing Cup gave American Ideal his fifth WA Pacing Cup win in the past ten years – no other sire has produced more than four WA Pacing Cup wins.

That is not to say that American Ideal is only a sire of Cup horses as he finished third on the Australian 2yo Sires List in 2023 with 35 individual 2yo winners of 65 races and $1,103,742 in stakes.

He was eighth on the Australian 3yo Sires List in 2023 and fifth on the all-age list with a total of 226 winners of $6,518,122.

He is now the sire of 861 Australasian winners with 190 of them earning in excess of $100,000 in stakes including five millionaires headed by Copy That p,1:52.0 $2,019,401.

Nine of his $100,000 earners are out of mares by Art Major with another son of Artsplace in Artiscape responsible for a further eight $100,000 earners.

He also crosses well with Bettors Delight mares as shown by the cross producing 18 $100,000 earners to date.
