SUN STUD

VICTORIA’S PREMIER STALLION FARM

Sun Stud has announced its stallion fees for 2019 with the exciting addition of Champion 2YO, National Defense, to Victoria’s premier lineup.

 

Winning his Group One by nearly 5 lengths and his debut by 6, National Defense hails from an outstanding black type family and, importantly, is a son of Champion Sire and Sire of Sires, Invincible Spirit.

 

Shuttling between Sun Stud and the Irish National Stud, where he served a tremendous opening book of mares, National Defense stood alongside Invincible Spirit, who is currently the sire of 120 stakes winners, while his sons include the phenomenal I Am Invincible (who recently equaled the feats of Snitzel and Danehill with 26 stakes winners in a season).

 

“We’ve been looking for a Champion 2YO by Invincible Spirit and believe National Defense is definitely the chosen son,” Irish National Stud CEO, Cathal Beale points out.

 

National Defense joins a roster of 10 at Sun Stud for this spring – an ideal mix of proven, rising and promising.

 

“National Defense was a brilliant juvenile who absolutely streeted his rivals and, not only is he an outstanding type, he’s by one of the most influential sires in the world,” Sun Stud’s Sales & Nominations Manager, Phil Marshall, explains. “We couldn’t be happier with the ‘team’ for 2019 and the National Defense announcement comes off the back of terrific results recently from Sun Stud stallions.

 

“Sun Stud will again offer the best terms available to breeders, with no payment due until live foal.”

GROUP PLACING FOR FIORENTE 3YO
Stakes winning 2yo POWER SCHEME has recorded a brave third placing in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.

The son of FIORENTE was a winner of the Listed Fernhill Stakes (1600m) at the track last season and has returned in great order this campaign with a nose second in the Mornington Guineas over the mile preceding his close third today.

A member of the Lindsay Park stable, the three-year-old gelding has earned in excess of $300,000 in prizemoney from his brief career to date.

“He got through the ground today, but I believe he will be better on top of the ground," said David Hayes.

"He ran well and we’ll press on to the Group 3 in a fortnight (Frank Packer Plate (2000m)) and then tackle the SA Derby."

POWER SCHEME is out of the Encosta de Lago mare Rosa Perlato and is a full-brother to Group 2 winner HAWKSHOT (now a winner in Hong Kong as BEAUTY LEGACY).

FIORENTE was crowned Champion Second Season Sire in Victorian last season and has recorded 31 individual winners so far in 2019/20.

How good is it to see a PALENTINO under saddle!
This colt is already pushing through hard along the rail and leading the way with Gippsland Bloodstock's Dean Grass.
Phoebe Grass rates the Palentino yearling out of stakes winning mare, Marie Soleil, very highly - "He's going super, bloody nice horse!"

FIORENTE DUO EYE MORNINGTON RICHES
Group 2 AAMI Vase winner and Group 1 VRC Derby runner-up STARS OF CARRUM will line-up in the Listed $350,000 Mornington Cup (2400m), while Stakes winning two-year-old POWER SCHEME will tackle the $135,000 Mornington Guineas (1600m) on the Peninsula's stand-alone program this Saturday.

STARS OF CARRUM has been in Pat Carey's stable for just three weeks and the trainer said he was still learning about the stayer.

The four-year-old son of FIORENTE ran a closing fourth (beaten 2.4L) in the Mornington Cup Prelude (2000m) at Caulfield last Saturday.

"We're happy with the horse and he came through his run well the other day," Carey said.

"It's probably not the most ideal scenario backing-up and being third-up after having such a long break. But he gives the impression he's a clean-winded horse."

STARS OF CARRUM has drawn barrier 3 and Beau Mertens will take the ride.

"He had a good break after an injury concern following a Queensland campaign last year and he's had time to mature and furnish out.

"Like a lot of the Fiorente stock, he is a nice horse."

The $2,000,000 Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick next month or $400,000 Listed The Andrew Ramsden (2800m) at Flemington in May are likely options for the galloper this preparation.

POWER SCHEME will jump from barrier 8 in the Guineas and Noel Callow will be having his first ride on the Lindsay Park trained runner.

“He was good first-up and he’s knocking on the door to produce his best,” said David Hayes.

“He's a talented three-year-old, he will settle midfield and be strong at the finish.”

A winner of the Listed Fernhill Stakes (1600m) at Randwick at 2, POWER SCHEME had little luck in stakes races last preparation after resuming with a win at Moonee Valley over 1500m.

The FIORENTE gelding will tackle the Listed Port Adelaide Guineas (1800m) at Morphettville on April 4 for his next outing.
