ONE of the revelations of the 2020 racing season was the remarkable success of the young sire Adaay, who stands at Whitsbury Manor Stud in Hampshire with Showcasing and three other stallions.

Still offered with a very attractive covering fee of only £5,000, Adaay was the leading British first-crop sire in Europe last year, with 24 individual winners of 35 races and earnings of over €450,000, a strike rate of 38%.
