Currently Elvstroem sits 9th on the individual winners list for the season with a total of 104 winners of 143 races. His total progeny earnings for the season have gone thru $2.8 Million.

These are wonderful results Elvstroem has achieved so far this season and despite the names he is listed among, his is the third best “winners to runners” ratio.

Demonstrating his fantastic value is the fact that he is the only stallion among these elite names to have a service fee under $10,000 in 2013.
