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, Mark Lindsay, 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 such as Fiorente, who this month notched up his third stakes winner with the Lindsay Park trained 2YO, Power Scheme.

 

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

THE FIGHT-ING CONTINUES
Following hot on the hooves of Wednesday’s victory by Green Ivy over 2081m, Sun Stud’s FIGHTING SUN was at it again on Thursday with the Gai Waterhouse Racing and Adrian Bott trained, Ausfighter, proving too strong over 1300m at Hawkesbury Race Club Limited.
Hailing from Fighting Sun’s first crop, Ausfighter led throughout at Hawkesbury and appears to have a promising future for Darby Racing and his large band of owners.
Bred by Carramar Park’s Wayne & Pauline Alchin in NSW, Ausfighter is from the multiple winning Redoute’s Choice mare, Ausvall, a direct descendant of Champion 2YO, Tracy’s Element, the dam of Australian Horse of the Year, Typhoon Tracy.
Interestingly, one of Fighting Sun’s best runners to date – the Group placed winner Platinum Mam’selle – is also out of a Redoute’s Choice mare.
Fighting Sun stands this season at a fee of $13,750.

FIGHTING SUN & FIORENTE GO ONE, TWO
All things being equal, it’s highly unlikely Sun Stud stallions – FIGHTING SUN and FIORENTE – would ever have faced each other on the racetrack, but a good indication of the versatility of both sires was Tuesday’s Mt Baw Baw Alpine Maiden over 2081m at Moe Racing Club.
The Ken Keys owned and trained $1.20 favourite, GREEN IVY – by Fighting Sun – climbed to new heights with his victory at Moe, holding off a strong challenge from Fiorente’s INFALLYBELLE who, unfortunately for trainer and part-owned Cindy Alderson, had to settle for her third second in succession.
Highlighting the appeal of both Fighting Sun and Fiorente, Green Ivy was bred in Western Australia, while Infallybelle was bred in Queensland!
Green Ivy is out of the More Than Ready mare, Pure Ivy, while Infallybelle hails from the Beautiful Crown mare, Ballybelle.
Interestingly, while the majority of Fighting Sun’s runners excel over the shorter courses (after all, Fighting Sun won his only two starts at two over 1100m), but is showing versatility like his own sire, Northern Meteor, with multiple winners at 2000m or longer.
Meanwhile, Fiorente continues his great week after Moor Gait won the Group Three SA Fillies Classic at Morphettville on Saturday, after notching up a quinella with Busta Move and Fiorena at Cranbourne on Friday.
Fighting Sun stands this season at a fee of $13,750, while Fiorente’s fee is $27,500, with all stallions at Sun Stud offering no payment until a live foal.
