NET TEN EOM is one of the best-bred stallions available to New Zealand breeders. He’s by a Hall of Fame racehorse who has quickly become a champion sire. And he’s out of a Hall of Fame racemare. Now we know he’s unproven — his oldest stock are two-year-olds in North America in 2017 — but he’s got everything going for him. And he’s off to a flying start.

Net Ten EOM’s credentials were quickly recognised in his first season at stud at Maple Lane Farm in Indiana in 2014 when he was strongly supported by breeders and left 65 foals. Now two-year-olds, those first Net Ten EOMs were among the earliest juvenile winners in the United States this year with the best of them contesting the early rounds of the Indiana Sires Stakes Series.

Net Ten EOM is very closely related to the top racehorse and sire Well Said. Their dams are full sisters

Net Ten EOM is a son of super sire Somebeachsomewhere — the first of his stallions to be made available to New Zealand breeders — and is out of the champion Artsplace mare Glowing Report (1:49.2, world champion, Breeders Crown champion and winner of $US2.3 million in stakes).

While breeders in New Zealand may not yet be convinced about Somebeachsomewhere, that’s not the case in North America where he was the champion sire in 2016 and is well on the way to repeating that feat in 2017. Significantly,¬†Somebeachsomewhere has ended¬†the dominance there of Bettor’s Delight, who is still the leading sire in Australia and New Zealand.

Net Ten EOM

Glowing Report, simply one of the best racemares of all time, is a full sister to Must See (1:52, $US562,000), the dam of top racehorse and sire Well Said (1:47.4, $US2.69 million) and the up-and-coming young Somebeachsomewhere sire So Surreal (who is, therefore, a full-brother in blood to Net Ten EOM).

And the second dam of Net Ten EOM, the Matt’s Scooter mare Grand Lady (1:52.4, $US235,000), is regarded as one of the best broodmares anywhere in the world in the past 20 years. She left 11 winners, including the Grand Circuit performers Glowing Report, Perfect Union (1:49, $US720,000), Urgent Action (1:49.6, $US700,000) and Get It Now (1:49.8, $US400,000).

Injury cut short Net Ten EOM’s promising racing career after just 17 starts. But not before he’d broken 1:50 three times for the mile, posting a best time of 1:49.4f on a half mile track at Pocono.

Net Ten EOM represents a new generation of the Direct Scooter siring line that’s been so successful here, through In The Pocket, Christian Cullen and Courage Under as well, of course, as Mach Three, the sire of Somebeachsomewhere. SBSW broke all sorts of records as a racehorse and is proving just as freakish at stud in North America. Only in the past season or so has his influence really spread to Australia and New Zealand racetracks through the efforts of Waikiki Beach, Menin Gate and Bonnie Joan.

Net Ten EOM also has Direct Scooter close up on his maternal line through Grand Lady.
