    2019 New Season stallions

    I intend to go and have a look at Mendelssohn. Sending a mare to Aust is only the air fare as I have a farm over there. Sadly many NZ stallions progeny do not command good prices at many of the Aust sales. It will be interesting to see how Vadamos goes.

    2019 New Season stallions

    There is a shuttle stallion at Coolmore in Aust, Mendelssohn by Scat Daddy out of Leslie's Lady and stands for $17600.He is a half brother to Into Mischief.This stallion was a $3,000,000 yearling and won the UAE Derby by 18 lgths in course record time. I know he is an Aust stallion but for Aust he seems to be exceptional value,what do others think? I consider Scat Daddy sires a good cross for Danehill line mares.
  3. Especially at $135 per day.

    Tony Pike strikes again.

    These country staying cups are popular throughout Aust.This one for $160000 with $83000 to the winner.Staying bred horses are getting a better chance now in Aust than in NZ and the money here is worth going for. A maiden 1200m race at this meeting was worth $45000.This sort of money gives those horses that are not quite up to city grade another chance.Why would anyone race in NZ?

    Maybe the class of mare put to him is not of the same standard as those in NH,or maybe he needed mares with more Mr P and Lyphard in their pedigree.Many Southern Hemisphere mares are saturated with Danehill and ND. Green Desert sire lines have not in the past been popular in the Southern Hemisphere until now with the exception of Volksraad.Showcasing still has and is leaving a host of winners.Perhaps the Oasis Dream line is not as popular as Invincible Spirit line.Could it be size? NZ and Aust has had Cape Cross and Invincible Spirit standing yet struggled to get mares so shuttling ceased.Now look what has happened in Aust with I Am Invincible.Certainly the Invincible Spirit sire line is in demand with the likes of Kingman,Lawman,See The Stars etc.and now in Aust they seem to be going crazy over sire sons of Invincible Spirit,thanks to I Am Invincible.

    Advertise won the G1 Commonwealth Cup last night at Royal Ascot.A three year old by Showcasing x Furbelow a mare by Pivotal .He has had 7 starts for 4 wins and 2 seconds. What a good sire Showcasing is.Big loss to NZ breeding and stood at a sensible fee.NZ owners that have fillies and mares by this sire should treasure them.

    Looks like his fee is set at $4500.Good value I would think.
