Dressage sire Jazz is the only of the three leading sires that is still alive. The Belgian stallion Darco is no newcomer among the best jumping sires in the world. In fact he has claimed the champion title for some years now. French Quidam de Revel was second in both 2008 and 2009, but he has now been surpassed by Holsteiner Carthago who moved from 17th place in 2008 to a 3rd place in 2009 and now into 2nd place.
Placed 5th this year is the French sire and multi-champion himself, Baloubet de Rouet who was found at a 19th place last year and not even in top 30 in 2008.
From outside the top 30 last year French stallion Kannan is now occopying rank 8 among the jumping sires.

This is the 3rd consecutive year with KWPN stallion Jazz in the lead and Oldenburg stallion Donnerhall on the second place of the ranking of dressage sires.
There are a few new names in the dressage top ten like e.g. the Dutch bred stallion Michellino who has worked as a sire in Denmark his entire life. Michellino is placed 4th and was 20th last year.His most famous offspring is Mistral Højris but there are another ten offspring responsible for his high rank. Oldenburg stallion, and son of Donnerhall, De Niro has come from out of the blue to take a 5th rank this year whereas in 2009 he was not within sight in the top 30. His son Dablino placing 16th individually is the best get of De Niro, but 9 more offsprings have helped him climb into the top 5.
The thoroughbred stallion Heraldik xx impresses by holding the lead as world's best sire of eventing horses and at the same time places in the ranking of dressage sires as 28th! The late Heraldik xx placed 2nd in eventing in 2008 and in 2009 he had aready topped the sire ranking as best producer of eventing horses.
Most of the sires of eventing horses are actually very stable in the top as the world's best producers where you find a considerable amount of Irish stallions and obviously thoroughbred stallions
