He is the sire of the winners of $76 million and 58 Stakes winners including eight at Group One level. As a maternal sire Snippets has continued his Golden Speed influence and to date is the grandsire of the winners of $44 million and 46 stakes winners. They include some of the most exciting sprinters in Australia today, Snitzel, Unearthly, Magnus, Wanted and the 2010 Golden Slipper hero Crystal Lilly.
The world’s leading active sire son of Mr Prospector at stud. He is responsible for more Group One winners than any other stallion at stud in Australia today. Hussonet took his incredible Group One tally to 28 recently when A Grade sprinter Eagle Falls claimed victory in the 2011 Group One Oakleigh Plate over 1100m at Caulfield. It was the second time in the last four years Hussonet sired the winner of this prestigious Group One sprint. Hussonet is the sire of 75 individual Stakes winners with progeny earnings of over $37 million worldwide. He has enjoyed remarkable success as an outcross sire to Northern Dancer line mares and is the sire of an Australian Horse of the Year and World Champion Turf Sprinter in Weekend Hussler alongside a long list of distinguished Group One performers including Reanne, a winner of the Group One Blue Diamond, Gold Trail NZ ARC and Railway Stakes Group One.

Apart from his WA Saturday winners, Husson Lightning has also caught the eye of astute trainers with his numerous trial winners and Mrs Grey, "Australia's unluckiest maiden." (David Hayes, Trainer).
Husson Lightning's pedigree combines one of the world's great 2YO sires, Hussonet, with a former Australian Champion 2YO, Snippets. No wonder he was so precocious himself and his progeny look similar.
