7 WINS IN WEEK FOR LOVE CONQUERS ALL
One of the star attractions at the Sun Stud Open Day & Stallion Parade on Friday, LOVE CONQUERS ALL has notched up his 7th winner in a week following the victories of Kubis and Gossiaux on Saturday.
Leading the charge this time around was the Anderson Heathcote Racing trained, Kubis, who notched up his 4th win in town (7th win overall for $372,500 in stakes) by capturing the Ascot Plaza Handicap over 1400m at Eagle Farm Racecourse, edging out 4-time stakes winner Monsieur Gustave in a thriller.
The well-related Kubis hails from the first crop of LOVE CONQUERS ALL which has yielded an incredible 78.2% winners to runners!
Bred by Donnybrook Thoroughbreds in NSW, Kubis is from the Grosvenor mare, Aperto.
The Kym Afford trained, Gossiaux, meanwhile, made it win #3 when successful over the 1030m at Gympie Racecourse and Showground on Saturday.
From the Exceed And Excel mare, Silverscreen Queen, Gossiaux was bred by Nick Moraitis, who also raced LOVE CONQUERS ALL throughout his illustrious – multiple Group winning – career.
Love Conquers All stands this season at Sun Stud at a fee of $8,800, with no payment until live foal.

DOUBLE MAKES A-TEN FOR FIGHTING SUN
After wowing the record crowd (again!) at Sun Stud’s Open Day & Stallion Parade on Friday, FIGHTING SUN has continued his great start to the season courtesy of a double via the McEvoy Mitchell Racing trained, Aten, at Morphettville Racecourse and the Ellerton Zahra Racing flyer, Darmasun at Wangaratta Racecourse.
There was just so much to like about the performance of Aten, who was having just her third career start, coming into the @Mill Park Stud Plate over 1100m after an eight month break since finishing 2nd at Bendigo Racecourse in December.
Hitting the lead early in the straight, Aten held on gamely when challenged and clearly has big future.
Bred by Fairview Park and Audrey Nutman in NSW, Aten is out of the Nothin’ Leica Dane mare, Somethin’ Leicajem, while Darmasun was notching up her 2nd win for a big group of owners.
Daramasun was bred by Darren Kinniburgh and hails from the Monashee Mountain mare, Darmasanda who was covered by FIGHTING SUN last season.
FIGHTING SUN stands this season at a fee of $13,750, with no payment until live foal.

SUN STUD GOES ‘NATIONAL’ WITH OPEN DAY
A record crowd attended the 2019 Sun Stud Open Day & Stallion Parade in Victoria on Friday with many taking the opportunity to inspect Champion 2YO, National Defense, for the first time.
A Group One winning son of Invincible Spirit, National Defense only arrived at Sun Stud on Monday after journeying from the Irish National Stud, but looked in magnificent order … a good thing as he’ll be one busy boy this spring!
Despite the threat of rain, over 350 people flocked to Sun Stud, as the MC – Racing.com's Jayne Ivil – also introduced the other nine stallions on Victoria’s premier stallion lineup: Fiorente, Magnus, Palentino, Fighting Sun, Thronum, Bel Esprit, Love Conquers All, Ready For Victory and Squamosa.
Fiorente has really captured the imagination of breeders and will have a full dance card from 1 September onwards, particularly as news has filtered through of his stakes winning 2YO, Power Scheme, who convincingly won a trial that morning, while Magnus – with over 100 individual winners again last season – continues to be highly popular.
Meanwhile, the first crop of flashy dual Group One winner, Palentino, will be sold at major 2020 yearling sales; we are yet to see the best of Fighting Sun as only 20% of his foal crops have raced at this stage; Thronum is about to embark on his second spring after covering an elite book of mares in 2018; Bel Esprit remains the champion sire of champions; Love Conquers All has over 78% winners to runners from his first crop; the first of the Ready To Victorys are now with leading trainers and poised to race this spring and; Squamosa is one of the most exciting young stallions in Victoria.
Sun Stud will again be offering no payment until live foal on all of its stallions in 2019.
“A big thank you to all the breeders who attended the Open Day & Stallion Parade and we’re looking forward to a bumper year in the covering shed and sharing their success,” Sun Stud’s Senior Sales & Nominations Manager, Mark Lindsay points out. “It was also great that the prize generously donated by Moonee Valley Racing Club managed to raise $1,165 for our friends at the RDA Victoria - Riding for the Disabled Association of Victoria.”
