What I want to do with this article is point out a few sires within the sim that have shown greater ability outside of the sim when comparing measurable stats.
This series of article will look at five stallions who are at various points in their careers. By looking at these five stallions we can get a better picture of whether the sim sire abilities may need a boost or perhaps the lack of use may be the underlying problem. Hopefully you can take something from this article and use it to your advantage.
The first sire that I would like to look at is Include Son on Chef De Race Broad Brush out of a Stop The Music mare. Includehas had two crops IRL to hit the track and a total of 117 starters.
Here are the figures for his real life progeny.

Here are the figures for his sim progeny. He has a total of 112 sim foals.

Looking at these figures one might jump to the conclusion that his sim abilities are a step below those that he has put together in the real world. The absence of quality stakes animals is a bit alarming but I'm still not ready to give up on him. It's my opinion that if he were to see better sim mares just maybe he would begin to shine.
So if your looking for a good buy late in the week you might take a flyer on Include who could be purchased saturday night at 91 bp's.
