“Pursuit” Takes Top Honours Among Newcomers Reaching Elite Status for Both LPI and Pro$
Pine‐Tree‐I  Pursuit  (son  of  Imax  out  of  Pine‐Tree  9882  Prof  7019‐ET,  by Profit) makes an  outstanding debut at #4 Pro$ and #6 LPI, which earns him the accolade of being the highest newly proven  sire  this  round.  In  fact,  only  four  other  sires  achieve  Top  10  status  for  both  national  indexes. Two of these split the 1‐2 placing honors as Westcoast Alcove (Duke x MVP) maintains his hold at #1 LPI and #2 Pro$ (#2 Fat, #3 Protein) while Peak AltaHothand‐ET (Hotline x Montross) maintains his hold at #1 Pro$ and climbs a notch to now occupy #2 LPI spot (tied #7 Protein). The final pair of sires achieving double Top 10 status this round includes Boldi V Gymnast (Doorsopen x Jabir) at #4 LPI and #7 Pro$ as well as OCD Bandares Cabernet‐ET (Bandares x Rubicon), who climbs one spot for each index to now reach #3 Pro$ and #5 LPI.

When looking at the Top 10 LPI list, Farnear Delta‐Lambda‐ET (Delta x Numero Uno) moves down one spot to take #3 LPI (#13 Pro$, tied #2 Conformation) and No‐Fla Capital 45499‐ET (Ferdinand x Stoic) also slips slightly from #4 to #7 (#56 Pro$). Two previous Top 10 LPI sires maintain their status this August as Stantons Alligator (Kingboy x McCutchen) occupies #8 LPI position (#105 Pro$, tied #2 Conformation) and Murrayholm Glenhaven Cop‐ET (Emerald x Supersire) lands at #10  LPI  (#35  Pro$,  #4  Fat).  Moving  up  from  ranking  #16  in  April,  S‐S‐I  La Syracse Alvarez‐ET  (Syracuse x Josuper) climbs to #9 LPI (tied #17 Pro$) and completes the list of Top 10 LPI sires this round.

With an increase of $248, Blumenfeld Gdanc Rumble‐ET (GateDancer x Rubicon) climbs the Pro$ list from #9 to #5 position (#12 LPI). This advancement moves him ahead of Progenesis Montfort (AltaHotrod x Defender) at #6 Pro$ (#23 LPI, #3 Fat, #6 Protein). The Top 10 Pro$ list this August is completed by Aurora AltaAntonio‐ET (Bandares x Commander) at #8 Pro$ (tied #39 LPI), Cal‐Roy‐Al Yoda‐ET (Jedi x Yoder) at #9 Pro$, up from #42 position (tied #50 LPI), and S‐S‐I Silver Sonic‐ET (Silver x Multiply) at #10 Pro$ (#20 LPI).

In addition to Pursuit as the highest newly proven sire this August, five other newcomers manage to penetrate the Top 35 list for LPI and/or Pro$. The highest of these is Peak AltaLawson‐ET, who is a son of AltaRobson out of OCD Lavish‐ET that arrives at #11 LPI and #14 Pro$. Peak AltaRuban (son of  Bandares  out  of Siemers Rubicn M‐Roz‐Mia‐ET) also  achieves  Top  35  status  for  both  indexes at #27 LPI and #31 Pro$. TJR Duke Dawson (Duke son out of TJR De‐Diamond 31630‐ET, by Draco 15006) makes an impressive debut as he becomes the new breed leader at #1 Milk and #1 Protein, which contributes to his #19 Pro$ ranking (#67 LPI). The two remaining newly proven sires that achieve Top 35 status are Morningview Marvelous‐ET (son of House out of Morningview Jedi 4869‐ET) at #25 LPI (#43 Pro$) and Progenesis BigPicture (Bandares son out of Progenesis Denver Betsy) at #34 Pro$ (#37 LPI).

Trio of Maternal Sisters Join Their Dam Among Top 10 for GLPI and Pro$
Stantons Bighit Melody*POR climbs both Top 10 lists to grab #2 GLPI and #4 Pro$, thanks to the incredible achievement of three daughters that are newly indexed this August. These include a pair of full sisters by Bundle, namely Stantons Bundle Extra at #2 Pro$ and #3 GLPI and Stantons What It Takes P*POR at #7 GLPI and #8 Pro$, as well as Stantons Acura Roxie who makes her debut at #5 Pro$ and #6 GLPI. The breed leaders remain unchanged as Benner Alcove Jaynella stays firm at #1 GLPI (#3 Pro$, tied #5 Fat) and Claynook Chris Renegade does the same at #1 Pro$ (#4 GLPI). Two full sisters of Jaynella by Alcove (dam is Benner Eugenio Jaymie at #13 GLPI and #19 Pro$) maintain their Top 10 GLPI status from last round as Benner Alcove Jennifer stays put at #5 GLPI (#13 Pro$) and Benner Alcove Jaydin follows close behind at #8 GLPI (#12 Pro$). Two additional Alcove daughters complete the Top 10 GLPI list this round as Stantons Alcove Emotion occupies #9 GLPI position (#11 Pro$, #10 Fat) and Westcoast Alcove Riza 7533 loses some ground but lands at #10 GLPI (#17 Pro$).

In addition to the three aforementioned newly indexed cows that penetrate the Top 10 list for both GLPI and Pro$, three other newly indexed cows achieve Top 10 status for Pro$.
