The global operation of Prince Khalid bin Abdullah of Saudi Arabia ranked first in earnings among owners in 2017, with its runners earning $10,841,155. They ran up a 147-30-28-18 line for the year, good for a 20.4 percent win percentage.

The operation’s top runner in 2017 proved to be champion Arrogate, who catapulted the farm’s earnings into the stratosphere when winning the inaugural $12 million Pegasus World Cup (G1) and $10 million Dubai World Cup (UAE-G1) at the beginning of the year.

Juddmonte has breeding farms in Kentucky, England and Ireland.
