 :stop:Career earnings of Leading Australian and New Zealand bred horses that had at least 1 start in AUS and NZ or Australian based imports that have won AUD 5,000,000 or more.

(Foreign earnings converted to AUD using Reserve Bank of Australia daily indicator rates for the date of the race or the previous trading day if the race was on a day forex markets were closed for a weekend or holiday in Sydney, Australia  - found at:  https://www.rba.gov.au/statistics/historical-data.html)   

Earnings shown in selected other currencies for comparison purposes.

WINX (AUS) 2011   AUD 26,451,175   USD 19,753,694   GBP 14,697,269   EUR 17,399,539   JPY 2,201,799,600      
(Career Record: Australia: Starts: 43: 37-3-0-3 for AUD 26,451,175)                     
                     
Beauty Generation (NZ) 2012 (late 'Montaigne' in Aust.) (to 19 Jan 2020)     AUD 16,325,345   USD 11,927,843   GBP 9,072,892   EUR 10,394,510   JPY 1,329,073,984   HKD 93,308,887   
(Career Record: Starts: 35: 18-4-7-6; Australia: Starts: 7: 2-2-1-2 for AUD 334,700; Hong Kong: Starts 28: 16-2-6-4 for HKD 92,150,000 (inc HKD 750,000 High Achievement Bonus))                     
Beauty Generation's Hong Kong only HKD earnings that I have calculated are also the same as those reported by Bloodhound.net.au.  I think the hkjc have made an error in their HKD earnings total but without access to their records I cannot say how it occurred.                       
                     
Redzel (AUS) 2012  (to 19 Oct 2019)   AUD 16,093,500   USD 12,013,024   GBP 9,070,051   EUR 10,300,805   JPY 1,342,414,616      
(Career Record: Australia: Starts: 36: 15-8-2-11 for AUD 16,093,500)                     
                     
MAKYBE DIVA (GB) 1999       AUD 14,526,685   USD 10,741,606   GBP 6,027,017   EUR 8,807,740   JPY 1,189,587,351      
(Career Record: Starts: 36: 15-4-3-14; Australia: Starts: 34: 15-4-3-12 for AUD 14,526,685; Japan: Starts: 2: 0-0-0-2 for JPY 0)                     
                     
Vengeance of Rain (NZ) 2000 (late 'Subscribe' in Aust.)     AUD 11,722,989   USD 9,197,750   GBP 4,840,610   EUR 7,102,039   JPY 1,051,040,184   HKD 71,711,531   
(Career record: Starts 27: 10-3-4-10; Australia: Starts 3: 1-0-1-1 for AUD 64,000; Hong Kong: Starts 23: 8-3-3-9 for HKD 47,965,600: UAE (Dubai): Starts: 1: 1-0-0-0 for USD 3,000,000; and 2005 World Racing Championships Series bonus of USD 500,000)                     
According to hkjc records Vengeance of Rain earned HKD 75,410,500 from racing in Hong Kong. I can only arrive at this figure if I assume Vengeance of Rain won a bonus of USD 500,000 for winning the 2005 world racing championships series (the last year the series was run, first run in 1999 with a bonus of USD 1,000,000). I have not been able to find any evidence of the amount paid.  The components making up the total could possibly be:  Hong Kong race earnings of HKD 47,965,500 + UAE Dubai earnings of say HKD 23,445,000 + Bonus of say HKD 4,000,000.                       
If a USD 500,000 bonus is included in the total above the earnings then the earnings in the various will increase to: AUD 12,388,059; USD 9,697,749; GBP 5,125,991; EUR 7,525,290; JPY 1,111,275,619 and HKD 75,588,958 (inc Australian earnings and allowing for exchange rate differences to rates used by hkjc)                     
                     
SUNLINE (NZ) 1995       AUD 11,640,216   USD 6,615,523   GBP 4,343,475   EUR N/A   JPY 774,021,433      NZD 14,309,792.87
(Career Record: Starts: 48: 32-9-3-4; New Zealand: Starts: 10: 10-0-0-0 for NZD 332,950; Australia: Starts: 35: 21-9-2-3 for AUD 9,622,330; Hong Kong: Starts: 2: 1-0-0-1 for HKD 5,700,000 ; UAE (Dubai): Starts: 1: 0-0-1-0 for USD 200,000).                       
                     
Werther (NZ) 2011 (late 'Werther (NZ)')   AUD 10,431,360   USD 7,891,608   GBP 5,717,354   EUR 6,993,149   JPY 886,290,970   HKD 61,398,737   NZD 11,382,832.12
(Career Record: Starts 33: 10-9-6-8; New Zealand: Starts: 10: 3-2-2-3 for NZD 89,925; Australia: Starts: 3: 1-2-0-0 for AUD 368,250; Hong Kong: Starts: 19: 6-4-4-5 for HKD 53,309,250 plus High Achievement Bonus of HKD 750, 000 on 13/12/2015 and Top-up Bonus of HKD 250,000 on 20/03/2016; Japan: Starts: 1: 0-1-0-0 for JPY 60,960,000).                       
I am unable to reconcile my HKD earnings with the hkjc.com total of HKD 58,896,658 for 20 starts.  My USD calendar year totals are almost identical with equibase.com figures except for the 2016 calendar year yet my 2016 HKD amounts are identical with those on bloodhound.net.au and in line with the 2016 GBP figures published by  racingpost.com. Some bloodhound.net.au HKD amounts for 2017 and 2018 appear to be incorrect (eg compare with hkjc  pattern book for 2017-18 and racing post.com amounts).                       
                     
Able Friend (AUS) 2009   AUD 9,703,598   USD 7,928,990   GBP 5,151,569   EUR 6,648,535   JPY 910,495,949   HKD 61,489,505   
(Career Record: Starts 26: 13-5-4-4; Australia: Starts: 2: 1-1-0-0 for AUD 19,200; Hong Kong: Starts: 23: 12-4-4-3 for HKD 61,273,500; United Kingdom: Starts: 1: 0-0-0-1 for GBP 5,062.50).                       
I am unable to reconcile my HKD earnings total of HKD 61,489,505 with hkjc.com total of HKD 61,333,624.  It maybe that hkjc.com have included United Kingdom earnings in total hkjc.com total but have not included Australian earnings.                     
                     
NORTHERLY (AUS) 1996         AUD 9,341,850   USD 5,091,025   GBP 5,267,574   EUR 5,267,574   JPY 620,160,031

SO YOU THINK (NZ) 2006       AUD 8,874,999   USD 8,738,975   GBP 5,445,105   EUR 6,222,299   JPY 724,791,288

CHAUTAUQUA (AUS) 2010   AUD 8,755,653   USD 6,693,150   GBP 4,715,413   EUR 5,988,588   JPY 762,444,888

I have Chautauqua earning HKD 5,700,000 in Hong Kong which I have translated to AUD 959,903 which is included in AUD 8,755,653 whereas racingnsw.com.au has AUD 1,026,185 which is AUD 66,282 more and without further information I cannot explain the difference.

I have excluded Silent Witness (AUS) 1999  as he never raced in Australia and Good Ba Ba (USA) 2001 as he only ran 4 times in Australia as a 12YO.  For sake of completeness their details follow:   
                  
Silent Witness (AUS) 1999    AUD 10,781,792   USD 8,010,597   GBP 4,429,316   EUR 6,438,317   JPY 875,193,786   HKD 62,318,042   
(Career Record: Starts 29: 18-3-2-6; Hong Kong: Starts 26: 17-3-1-5 for HKD 52,936,900 (includes four bonuses totalling HKD 9,700,000); Japan: Starts: 1: 1-0-1-1 for JPY 135,912,000)                     
                     
Good Ba Ba (USA) 2001   AUD 9,271,164   USD 7,443,439   GBP 4,291,121   EUR 5,300,848   JPY 747,668,387   HKD 57,873,641   
(Career Record: Starts 50: 16-5-4-25; Hong Kong: Starts: 43: 16-5-4-18 for HKD 57,710,500 estimate; Japan: Starts: 2: 0-0-0-2 for JPY 0; UAE (Dubai): Starts: 1: 0-0-0-1 for USD 0.00; Australia: Starts: 4: 0-0-0-4 for AUD 20,150).                       
I am unable to reconcile Good Ba Ba's hkjc career earnings of HKD 59,026,500 with figures from bloodhound.net.au, racingnsw.com.au or racingpost.com for individual races.  I have assumed the hkjc.com total is incorrect.  My total Hong Kong earnings are HKD 57,710,500 which is HKD 1,316,000 less than the hkjc.com total of HKD 59,056,200 (about USD 130,000 less).

I think I have captured all that have earned more than AUD 5,000,000.  If anyone thinks I have missed one let me know.

(Bullish Luck's earnings include a USD 1,000,000 bonus for winning the Asian Mile Challenge when he won the Yasuda Kinen in Tokyo, Japan on 4 June 2006. 'equibase.com' have career earnings of USD 8,825,485 which is USD 1,014,494.45 more than my figure of USD 7,810,99.55.  Looking at the equibase.com calendar year earnings and my equivalent figures the discrepancy arises in the 2006 calendar year. Assuming forex differences of some 14,494.45 over the horses career I infer that equibase.com has double counted the 2006 Asian Mile Challenge Bonus of USD 1,000,000.  I have emailed equibase.com about that and equibase.com responded as follows: "Since all of his races were overseas, we have limited specifics to each race.  Equibase  covers North American racing (US and Canada).  Any result information would be provided by the foreign racing jurisdiction and we would report what they paid out to the owner." In other words equibase.com does not independently audit information received.  The 'hkjc.com' summary excludes 8 starts and earnings appear overstated by at least HKD 2,000,000. The 'racingpost.com' total is understated by about GBP 500,000 as the USD 1,000,000 bonus (GBP 536,039) was not included but the 'racingpost.com' total is otherwise correct after allowing for differing forex rates that may have been applied.)

JWL - Ans: Brain fade !

Top 50 worldwide earners in British pounds (as at 19 Jan 2020)   
      
For an alternative see 'The Top 40' earners in British punds published at: https://www.thoroughbredracing.com/articles/worlds-all-time-highest-earning-thoroughbred-racehorses/      
   
Differences between my figures and British figures may result from the following:  The British website does not include bonuses in earnings.  The British forex conversion rates are set in January of each year unlike equibase.com or myself who use current exchange rates (in my case those found at:  https://www.rba.gov.au/statistics/historical-data.html).  Forex rates can and often do seesaw over the course of a calendar year and a lot of big money races are run late in the calendar year when rates may have changed substantially (eg Hong Kong international meeting, Japan Cup and Arima Kinen, Melbourne Cup carnival, the Arc meeting at Longchamp and the Breeders Cup meeting in North America. The British often only begin to collect statistics once a horse first competes in a black type race.  For example a Japanese 2YO may have several starts before competing in a black type race so earnings from earlier starts are not captured by the British. Of course I could be wrong particularly when it comes to horses racing in Hong Kong where it is difficult to get accurate earnings information from hkjc.com retrospectively.

AUSTRALASIAN THOROUGHBRED EARNINGS RECORD HOLDERS THROUGH THE AGES


CARBINE (NZ) 1885
Undisputed number 1 Australasian career earnings record at the end of his career which ended 4 April 1891. Further work to be done for prior years.
On 4 April 1891 Carbine won the AJC Plate (later Queen Elizabeth Stakes (Group 1)) at Randwick, Sydney, Australia (earning £438 or AUD 876.00) to take his career earnings to £29,476 or AUD 59,252.00.  He retired after that race.
I have estimated his USA equivalent earnings as USD 143,341.00.
Carbine held the Australasian career earnings record of AUD 59,252 until 25 February 1922 when he was passed by Eurythmic.

In particular see: 'Foreign Exchange Rates New York 18 March for 'London' 'Cables' for USD to GBP 1.00 rate (USD 3.63125 = GBP 1.00) and 'Dominion exchange rates' re Australia pounds to GBP 100.00 rate (average of buy and sell 'Sight' rate per £100 sterling) which is converted to AUD to GBP 1.00 (AUD 2.5175 = GBP 1.00).

The 1960 American Racing Manual does not distinguished between Canadian and United States dollar earnings in effect treating the currencies as having equal value.   
The rate used to convert CAD to USD is the rate published for calendar year 1959 from a table viewed 'PACIFIC Exchange Rate Service' by the Universaity of British Coumbia Sauder School of Business (© 2016 by Prof. Werner Antweiler). Although not unexpected Prof. Antweiler's table also reflects a steady exchange rate of USD 1.12 to an equivalent AUD 1.00 (or USD 2.24 to £A 1.00) a figure widely quoted in the Australian newspapers at the time Sailor's Guide raced in North America.  I have not been able to locate any Reserve Bank of Australia exchange rate data covering this period on the internet.

These lists mean nothing, unless someone has adjusted for inflation etc....a far superior horse that raced a decade before the other has no chance on these lists.
What if She Will Reign wins the Everest jackpot? Hmmmm

Ah the Everest. Yes indeed. What will they say including those behind the Pegasus World Cup, the Breeders Cup, the British Champions meeting and Dubai World Cup meeting  or even Vic racing.  We also have sales promotion races, restricted territorial races and territorial breeders bonuses.  Didn't we once have a special Group 1 race to celebrate the America's Cup the 1983 'Australasian' in Perth.  Unlike so many Group 1 races at least the Everest is likely to attract the best possible field.  At least until recently the Americans did not include Japanese earnings in statistical tables because they believe they were inflated - see DRF website for some stuff on this - but they did include Dubai earnings - go figure.  Now they have their own Pegasus meeting perhaps their rules will change especially now that Arrogate is the money leader.  Perhaps to borrow the latest excuse for any perfidy from the business world the answer is: 'it is what it is'.

timw I could not disagree with you more about the Everest concept having the best 12 horses available..........it could have a field of 12 unraced horses, or maidens.........just say some multi buys all 12 slots...........total .cost 21,600,000 for 3 years.....guaranteed return $30,000,000.....Guaranteed profit $8,400,000..............then you buy 12 of the slowest horses in the country...........you can run them and collect $10mill each year with a heard of donkeys.....then send the winner to stud and Breed from it, it would be worth $30Mill as a Stallion......especially if you wait for the race to become established and get Group One status......which the big Breeders will make sure happens...........what a rort this race could be??

Now I haven't read the small print but what is to stop anyone doing that?? Now if the small print did say no individual can do that,  what if a Trainer like say David Hayes gets 12 clients together buys all 12 slots and they are a guaranteed profit of almost 50% on $20mill?? It doesn't have to have the best 12 horses.....how is Tulip better performed than a couple of the ones that missed out? If you own the slot you can run anything(and I think Tulip is huge overs and has a chance) but if it was the 12 best performed horses she would not get a Guernsey, would she?

Dave , Lets call it what it is . The " Everest" is a load of crap. The marketing genius' s who are probably being paid a small fortune couldn't even come up with a better name than something that is peculiar to an another Country. If South Africa comes up with a new race do you think they will call it the "Sydney Opera House Stakes". Total garbage. As a famous racing scribe once said , if you put the breeders in charge of anything you will get greed in all its  manifestations. That sadly is what has happened in NSW.

Fabulous list.

Some absolutely wonderful mares there. 

Wakeful is a most appropriate place to start but I would bet my boots that she surpassed LA CARABINE (Australian Cup,  Sydney Cup, 2 AJC Plates and 2 Champion Stakes) to claim the record.  Before La Carabine it is hard to say.  I am thinking BRISEIS but £3219 hardly seems enough - although there is a decided lack of champion race mares prior to the turn of the century. La Carabine is a gimme though at £9967.

Prior to Briseis I would look to BARBELLE, sister to The Barb, whose Doncaster, Sydney Cup and 3 editions of the VRC Flying Stakes would have put her up there but we would need to check on ZOE as her two Champion Sweepstakes only could have been worth £2750 and I am doubtful Barbelle earned as much.  Zoe also won a handful of 100 sovereign races which would probably take her purse to excess of Briseis.

Prior to Zoe the ancients ALICE HAWTHORN and DORA would have amassed tidy fortunes but we probably will never know with any exactitude.

That is a fantastic list!

Before La Carabine, it would be hard to know. Auraria which won the 1895 Melbourne Cup, VRC Oaks and Fisher Plate for a total from those 3 victories of £4229 10s would probably be ahead of Briseis and Zoe. There were very few outstanding mares before La Carabine.

It's interesting compared to today, but on a list from 1944 of the highest-earning Australasian horses, Desert Gold was the highest mare although in 25th place overall.

Some amazing horses there.  How about Kingston ?  A world record 89 wins, only out of the money 4 times in 138 starts.  He raced from two  through his 10 year old season and was the leading sire in America when he was 16 and again when he was 26. 

In 1910, when he was champion the second time his son Novelty was the leading US money winner and champion 2YO but was then exported to France and later Brazil because of the Harts-Agnew laws that made gaming and horse racing illegal in New York state in 1908.  Racing was only able to continue by oral wagering.  Anything written down was deemed illegal and the law was out in force to enforce the law.  These laws followed on from similar acts in neighboring New Jersey from 1898 that started something of an exodus of horses and riders from America to Europe including the great Tod Sloan.  After a 1911 amendment to the law to limit the liability of owners and directors was defeated,every racetrack in New York State shut down.  Racing resumed in New York in 1913 after the full economic gravity of ban was realized.

I note that a Mr Duryea shipped all his US mares to France and formed a stud a Neuvy, Normanby in 1912 because of the anti-betting bill.  As a result Durbar II (1911)  was the first horse from France to win the English Derby since Gladiateur in 1865 although Durbar II did not have a drop of French blood in him..  Interestingly Durbar 11 was not classified as a thoroughbred and his 'victory (in the Derby) caused pain to purists' until 1949 when changes to the Stud Book rules regularized his position.  See  Biographical Encyclopaedia of British Flat Racing (1978) for more.

Yes, the Jersey laws. 

They had quite an impact on the evolution of the sport of thoroughbred racing in the first half of the 20th century and were responsible, I think, for the various jurisdictions developing apart from one another. 

I presume Weatherby's took exception to the lines of Lexington on Durbar's dam side because his grandsire Timolean was out of the Saltram Mare (~1801) who traces to the Vampire mare (~1757) at the head of American Family 24. 

157 years on the British declared Durbur not worthy of the Stud Book and the horse beat all the colts worthy of the Stud Book for the Derby.  Ridiculous.
