Americain gets steady numbers at Swettenham Stud in Australia. Think he was around 60 mares last season and his progeny are starting to get wins now
Ask me any questions you have about New Zealand and Australia racing

Considering that most of the best modern stayers in Australia/winners of the Melbourne Cup are bred and/or trained in Europe, I feel like staying stallions are up against it even in Australia, where the most prestigious long distance race is held. They breed for speed. They import for stamina.

Agreed that is why New Zealand horses have traditionally done so well there but a horse like Americain can find his niche or at least serve more than 9 mares in Aus!
