Congrats bred more mares than any stallion in the nation his first year in Kentucky (205), and his ensuing CI (2.71) and CPI (4.30) were among the very best in his fee range. In 2012, he sired two G1 winners: Emma's Encore and Turbulent Descent. Just six active stallions sired two or more U.S. G1 winners on dirt that year, and he was the only one who stood for less than $60,000.
Progeny by Congrats are highly sought-after at public auction. In 2014, his yearlings averaged $97,778 with 12 selling for at least $140,000. His 2-year-olds in training sold for $300,000, $260,000, $220,000, $190,000, $155,000, $135,000, etc. The future is, indeed, bright.
