Canford Cliffs is well clear of the rest of the sires with their first South African crops running as two-year-olds.
However, the NHA have confirmed he is not eligible for any awards having stood in another country before.
Canford Cliffs has had 13 individual two-year-old winners of 15 races.
Maine Chance Farms’ Dubawi stallion Erupt has had seven individual winners of nine races for earnings of R932,000 and leads the freshman sires title race.
Gold Standard and Royal Mo look to be his nearest rivals with three winners each and earnings of R260,750 and R249,925 respectively.
