Stravinsky Back!

 
13 May 2011

Sir Patrick Hogan confirmed today that the utterly-proven sire Stravinsky is returning to Cambridge Stud in time for the upcoming breeding season.

 

“I’m chuffed to get him back,” said Sir Patrick today.

 

“When he returned to Japan after the 2009 season I thought he might never be seen in the Southern Hemisphere again.  He’s a sire with a great record and his progeny are popular in the sale ring.”

 

According to figures supplied today by Arion Pedigrees (www.arion.co.nz), Stravinsky is the sire of no less than 715 winners.  His success has been spread across 30 countries, clear evidence that Stravinsky is an international stallion in every sense.  He’s had more than 100 individual winners in Australia, New Zealand and America, respectively.

 

Stravinsky began his stud career in America and New Zealand in 2000; with Cambridge Stud being his original Southern Hemisphere home base.  Since then he has been responsible for 67 individual black type winners, 36 of which have won at Group level.

 

Stravinsky’s individual Group One tally numbers eight, namely Serenade Rose, Keeninsky, Benbaun, (Sir) Time Keeper, Balmont, Soldier’s Tale, Captivate and (Mr) Baritone.

 

The fee for Stravinsky has been set at a super-competitive $25,000 + gst (live foal guarantee).
