CS sires on the pace!

6 Jul 2014

In a highly-competitive stallion marketplace where only the prominent survive, Cambridge Stud works towards the 2014 Breeding Season with the knowlege that its' five-strong stallion roster all offer credentials which are meangingful to the broodmare owner.

Right now KEEPER leads the New Zealand Stallion Premiership for individual winners.  He's had 57 individual winners so far this season, three clear of Champion Stallion O'Reilly who commands more than seven times Keeper's 2014 service fee of $8,000 + gst (LFG).

While Keeper continues to deliver the proven performance he is well known for, young gun TAVISTOCK has made a great start to his stud career.  His first crop has included a Listed Race quinella and he currently sits third on the NZ First Season Stallion Premiership for Earnings and second-equal for individual winners.

CAPE BLANCO's first-crop Southern Hemisphere foals have delighted all who have bred to the five time Gr.1 winner.  He had the second-leading seller at the this year's NZB National Weanling Sale, with the colt from Tip The Wink fetching $100,000.  Cape Blanco is, of course, a son of the World's No.1 Sire Galileo who sits at 42 individual Gr.1 winners and currently leads both the Great Britain and Irish Stallion Premierships.

There will be huge interest in the arrival next month of the first-crop Southern Hemisphere foals of dual Gr.1 winner POWER.  His masculine good looks and pedigree credentials made him a popular horse in year one at Cambridge Stud.  He's a son of Oasis Dream and no other stallion managed more wins with his progeny than him in Great Britain last year.

Cambridge Stud launched two newcomer stallions last year, Power and BURGUNDY, the latter being a son of Redoute's Choice - the current leader on the 2013/2014 Australian Stallion Premiership.  What's more, Burgundy's half-brother Darci Brahma currently leads the Singapoare Stallion Premiership for individual winners.

So, a summary of current Premiership facts surrounding the CS Stallion Roster, in alphabeticl order...

* BURGUNDY - by the current leader on the Australian Stallion Premiership, Redoute's Choice
