New Zealand Stallions
CONTRIBUTER – NOMINATION
No one can argue the quality of Contributer as a racehorse. He was a Champion Australian Middle Distance Horse of the Year and the brilliant winner of the Gr.1 Chipping Norton (1600m), Gr.1 Ranvet (2000m)and Gr.2 Apollo (1400m).
The well bred son of the exciting sire of sires High Chaparral, Contributer was a winner at 2 in England and trained on to be a Group winner at 4 and a 2 x Group 1 winner at 5 in Australia.
Contributer has made a strong start to his stallion career with 6 2yo’s runners for 2 winners who both won in Australia. On breeding and race performance you would expect his progeny to only get better with time. He is Danehill free and potentially offers breeders the great chance of upside.
Contributor stands at an advertised service fee of $10,000 + GST, at Mapperley Stud.
REDWOOD – NOMINATION
From just 163 runners Redwood has made a great start to his stud career with 16 Stakes performers which include 7 Stakeswinners and 4 who have been Group 1 placed.
Redwood is a son of High Chaparral who is proving to be an outstanding sire of sires. His proven sons at stud include Dundeel, So You Think and Toronado.
On paper Redwood mates well with a number of sire lines including Daehill, Zabeel and Last Tycoon. His provides breeders with a good opportunity to bred a quality middle distance horse that will train on.
Redwood stands at an advertised service fee of $8,000 + GST, at Westbury Stud.
SHAMEXPRESS – NOMINATION
From just 84 runners, ShamExpress has had 44 winners including 4 Stakeswinners (2 colts, 2 fillies).
As a 3yo the son of O’Reilly was a brilliant winner of the Gr1 VRC Newmarket H which is one of Australia’s premier sprints. While at 4 he ran second in the Gr1 Sprint Classic and the Gr1 Lightning S so it will be no surprise to see his progeny get better with time.
ShamExpress is Danehill free and on type suits many mares. He is a big strong horse who has the ability to add strength and speed to his progeny which is important.
ShamExpress stands at an advertised service fee of $8,000 + GST, at Windsor Park Stud.
SWEYNESSE – NOMINATION SOLD
The young Novara Park based stallion has made a strong start to his stud career with 3 winners and two placegetters from his first crop of 2yo’s. The winners include the Gr3 winning filly Bonita Aurelia and Only Words who was 4th in the Listed Wellesley S.
Sweynesse is a son of Lonhro and was a quality Gr1 performer in Sydney against highclass opposition. He is now leaving some very good types and is an easy horse to mate to.
Sweynesse stands at an advertised service fee of $6,000 + GST, at Novara Park.
TIME TEST – NOMINATION
Little Avondale’s exciting son of the great Dubawi. Dubawi is proving to be an exciting sire of sires including Night of Thunder and it would be no surprise to see Time Test follow in his footsteps. We inspected all Little Avondale Studs Time Test weanlings last week (24 July) and they were an outstanding lineup. Overall, they were very attractive and athletic. Most were very similar in colour (dark bay / browns), leggy with a good shoulder and girth and nice bone. They moved well and you would expect them to run.
Time Test gives breeders an opportunity to breed a quality foal that could well be in hot demand as a yearling especially if his first crop perform as well as their looks suggest.
Time Test stands at an advertised service fee of $6,000 + GST, at Little Avondale Stud.
TIVACI – NOMINATION SOLD
A Group 1 winning son of High Chaparral who is proving to be an outstanding sire of sires including Dundeel and So You Think. Tivaci’s first crop are 2yo’s this 2020/21 season. They were very well received at the 2020 yearling sales series and have gone to some outstanding trainers. We couldn’t be happier with the Ruqqaya colt who we purchased at Karaka this year. He has broken in particularly well and is heading to Danny O’Brien.
Tivaci raced against only the very best sprinters. His final four starts produced two wins, including his best, the Gr.1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick. He ended up finishing his stellar career with six wins between 1000 and 1600 metres.
We believe Tivaci offers breeders outstanding value this season. If his first crop come out as 2 and 3yo’s and show they have inherited his undoubted ability, there could be some serious upside for those who have mares in foal to him. This is a great season to go to him.
Tivaci stands at an advertised service fee of $12,500 + GST, at Waikato Stud.
VESPA – NOMINATION
The Kevin Hickman bred Vespa returns home to Valachi Downs for this season after beginning his stud career at Wellfield Lodge. The Group 1 winning son of Elusive City has made a very promising start to his stallion career. His oldest turn 3 on August 1 and out of 9 starters he has had 2 winners and 3 placegetters. His runners include a Group 2 placed filly and a Group 3 placed colt.
Vespa stands at an advertised service fee of $5,000 + GST, at Valachi Downs.
ALABAMA EXPRESS – NOMINATION
A Group 1 winning son of one of BPB’s all time favourite sires “Redoute’s Choice”. Redoute’s Choice is proving to be a wonderful sire of sires and his sons include Not A Single Doubt, Snitzel and Stratum. All three possessed speed as did Alabama Express so it would be no surprise to see him follow in their footsteps.
Alabama Express is an outstanding type and should give breeders a great chance of breeding good looking commercial yearlings that go on to perform on the racetrack.
From a mating perspective he carries strains of the great mares Lalun, Special and Best In Show, all of whom give breeders an advantage when duplicated through their sons and daughters.
Alabama Express stands at an advertised service fee of AUD$25,000 + GST, at Yulong, Victoria.
