Costello was the most popular stallion in 2017 with 116 covered mares. This was his first year standing at stud.

Former “matadors” Viesker and Liising weren’t available this year. Liising died and Viesker’s owners have decided that he has earned his retirement days after about 1500 offspring. Viesker was born in 1989 and his first crop was born in 1997.

Sipori got the second place with 78 mares and Fiiling placed third with 76 mares.

Altogether there are 1744 reported coverings this year, so about the same as in 2016 (1766).  70 % of these mares were covered by J (trotter)-stallions. R (riding horse) section placed second with 17,7 %, P (pony-sized finnhorses) third with 3,6 % and T (work horse) section fourth with 3,3 %.

95 mares were covered by stallions that have not been inspected for studbook (5,4 %). These foals, if purebred, will be registered as Finnhorses, but they won’t be able to compete in harness racing unless both of their parents have the same owner.
