With the ease of airplane transport over the past couple of decades, the breeding industry has shrunk, and the number of imported broodmares has seen an increase reflecting the growth in the shuttle era over the same time frame. Many industry participants are aware of the success of American bred broodmares in Australia, thanks to Gr.1 winners such as Foxwedge, Trust in a Gust, Russian Revolution, Northern Meteor, All American, Super Cool, Shamal Wind, Alverta, and many others. In a global breeding industry, there have also been Australian Gr1. winners out of European bred broodmares, such as French bred mares who have left Arapaho Miss and Pear Tart, and English and Irish mares who have left stars such as Pierro, Epaulette, Shocking, Helmet, The Autumn Sun, Youngstar, Unforgotten, Magicool, and Leicester, etc.
