Stallion Register 2010

The new Stallion Register 2010 has been launched recently. I have personally put in a lot of thought, time and effort into turning an otherwise boring statutory publication into a world class coffee table book. It now comes in glossy A4 size and features all Stallions at stud in India with their extended pedigree, performance, sire reference, dam reference, progeny details, etc. The book also carries an Index to Sires and Maternal Grandsires, various statistics, lists of all breeding establishments in India with their contact details and much more. The book for the first time features photographs of most of the stallions in India. This is truly a collector's piece.

Well done to Satish Iyer (Registrar) and the Stud Book Department for executing this task brilliantly. A copy can be bought from them.
