Now retired and enjoying the parstures at Stonegate Farm. 

A Stakes winner at 2 and 3 in North America, Nuke Of Earl has become one of the leading sons of a champion sire in No Nukes’ ever to be imported to Australia.

Nuke Of Earl has sired 118 individual winners and they have amassed almost $4.2-million in stake earnings at a remarkable $20,500 per starter.

He has sired seven $100,000 earners, 15 $50,000 earners, 11 in the 1:58 list and 29 in 2:00.

Perhaps the best of his progeny was Sheza Mona, who won a staggering 16 races as a juvenile including the Victoria Sires Stakes, NSW Pink Bonnet and Edgar Tatlow Memorial and was named Australian 2YO of the Year in 1996.

Other top performers by Nuke Of Earl have been Luke Of Earl, who won the NSW Breeders Plate, Victoria Youthful Stakes and the SA Sapling Stakes and later took a record of 1:52 in North America, Deadsetlucky 1:52.4 (Qld Seymour Nursery & Vic. Sapling), the NSW Sires Stakes champion Daroolgabie 1:58, Transit Earl 1:54.4 (USA) and Gobemouche 1:59.1.

Nuke Of Earl’s daughters are now starting to make an impact at the stud with hiom being the damsire of Nidya 1:52, the winner of $598,630, the Victoria Sapling Stakes winner Ay Tee Em 1:58 and Giggling Girl 1:54.3.
