SUN STUD

VICTORIA’S PREMIER STALLION FARM

SUN STUD, Victoria’s premier stallion farm, will field a 10-strong roster for the 2018 breeding season, which includes exciting newcomer THRONUM.

 

Thronum, a Lindsay Park trained son of Snitzel, won his first two races as a 2YO, then first up at three in the Listed Rosebud Stakes and, in January, led throughout to win the Group Two Australian Stakes. At his most recent outing, Thronum finished a narrow second in the Group One William Reid Stakes.

STAKES WINNING FIGHTING SUN STARS IN TRIAL
Two-year-old stakes winning FIGHTING SUN galloper CHESS STAR has won his first trial back as a three-year-old at Warwick Farm this morning.

The Gai Waterhouse/Adrian Bott trained sprinter jumped smartly, cruised along in front and posted an effortless one length victory over 740m, with Adam Hyeronimus sitting idle in the saddle.

Judging by the ease of the win, the speedy colt looks in for a big preparation!

An unraced three-year-old by FIGHTING SUN was also successful at the Warwick Farm trials for the Waterhouse/Bott training outfit today.

Tim Clark was on board this promising gelding, who was having just his second career trial over the 1175m distance.

Named AUSFIGHTER and raced by highly successful syndicators Darby Racing, he looks another winner in the making for last season’s Champion Victorian First Season Sire.

FIORENTE PROGENY FLOURISHING
Media Release: Thoroughbred Breeders Victoria.
Some would describe Sun Stud's sire Fiorente's progeny as flourishing, which would be an appropriate term, given this is the English translation of the Italian word.

The second season sire has had great success at the track with his progeny last weekend, when two runners enhanced their credentials with great performances.

The Robbie Laing trained Stars of Carrum charged home from the tail of the field to place at Morphettville in a Stakes race on Saturday and the Robbie Griffiths trained Alessandro took on the older horses to win at Cranbourne on Sunday.

"I was amazed at the natural speed these Fiorentes had early in their careers. I knew once they matured a bit they would come into their own," Griffiths said.

The trainer of Stars of Carrum was so impressed with Fiorente, when he stepped off the plane as a 3 year-old to run second in the Melbourne Cup, that he has now has bred one of his own from the Sun Stud stallion, with the yet-to-be-named colt recently winning his trial by 10 lengths.

Laing is no novice when it comes to what it takes to make up a good pedigree, having bred and trained his first stakes winner, Bencreato (Powerhouse), when he was just 17 years old and has promised himself that he will buy as many of Fiorente's progeny as he can.

Fiorente's connections have been delighted with the recent success of his progeny on the track and cannot wait to see what is yet to come for this promising young stallion.

"Breeders have got behind this horse and it's great to see them being rewarded with talented gallopers emerging from his first crop," Mark Lindsay (Sun Stud – Senior Sales and Nominations Manager) said.

"The stallion is already building an impressive team of runners in the early stages of his stud career, with the likes of Alessandro, Stars Of Carrum, Wham, Fariha and the exciting Hawkshot (who is back in work with Darren Weir after a minor setback derailed his spring campaign), plus a steady stream of placegetters.

"The fact that Fiorente's progeny are performing so well as early spring three-year-olds is highly promising. With natural progression, it's going to be a really entertaining Autumn!"

Both Alessandro and Stars of Carrum are entered for the Group 1 VRC Derby at Flemington in November and they make up two of the six entries for Fiorente in this race.

Alessandro and Stars of Carrum will both step out on track prior to the Derby. Alessandro is headed to Geelong on Cup day to tackle the Listed Geelong Classic and Stars of Carrum will head to Moonee Valley on Cox Plate day for the Group 2 Vase.

There is no doubt that Fiorente's progeny will continue to flourish and blossom as the Spring continues.

An outstanding winner of the Group I VRC Melbourne Cup and Australian Cup, Fiorente stands at Sun Stud at a fee of $17,600. He is the only son of champion German sire Monsun standing in Australia.
