Quilly Park are expecting 7 foals on the ground later this year by some of Australia’s top stallions carefully chosen for their pedigrees in order to maximise the potential of our broodmares.

AVIENUS

Group 2 winning mare Avienus is currently in foal to Darley sire Street Boss (Street Cry x Blushing Ogygian).

Street Boss (Stallion image: Darley Stud)‘Street Boss is the fastest son of Champion stallion Street Cry. A three-time record holder over 1100 and 1200 metres.

Avienus‘ first foal, a filly by High Chaparral, sold well at Inglis’ Premier Yearling Sales in March 2016.

The first of Avienus‘ progeny to race Ad Finem (x Fastnet Rock) won his first race, a three-year-old maiden over 1,000m first time out at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club last year.

RUBYONE

Rubyone is expecting her first foal to a stallion renowned for speed Denman (Lonhro x Peach).

Denman (Stallion image: Darley Stud)‘Undefeated short of a mile after his debut, Denman was a brilliant winner of the Group 1 Golden Rose.

‘His yearlings have sold for up to $400,000 and his two biggest and best books are his current two-year-old and yearling crops’.

Plan the Peace has produced three winners from four foals to date, including Mystyko (by Sakhee’s Secret) a winner over 1,200m in the final quarter of 2016 in Quilly Park’s colours.

Waitui Belle‘s Per Incanto filly Sally Sells Shells is currently in training for her maiden season.


VARONE

Varone is in foal to Darley stallion Reset (Zabeel x Assertive Lass). Reset has produced some outstanding horses in recent seasons and the Quilly Park team are excited about what this mating can achieve.

Reset (Stallion image: Darley Stud)‘No Victorian stallion can match Reset’s 6.2% Stakes winners to runners.

FRIENDWITHBENEFITS

Friendwithbenefits
is in foal for the first time to Arrowfield Stud’s Panzer Division (Redoute’s Choice x Desert Fight).

Panzer Division (Stallion image: Arrowfield Stud)Panzer Division’s impressive pedigree speaks for itself. His dam is Group 1 winning Desert Fight and his sire is Champion sire Redoute’s Choice.

His debut win at two-year-old  showed his exceptional ability early, his biggest career win was the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Stakes on only his third start.

Injury forced an early retirement from racing after just 7 starts and his defeat of several older Group 1 winners.

 

ANANTHA

Anantha is expecting her first foal to Arrowfield Stud’s 4-time Group 1 winning sprinter Olympic Glory (Choisir x Acidanthera).

Olympic Glory (Stallion image: Arrowfield Stud)A Champion two-year-old , a Champion three-year-old  miler and a four-time Group 1-winning sprinter, Olympic Glory joined the Arrowfield roster in 2015 after a superlative £1.4 million European career.

Olympic Glory won eight of his 15 starts over 1200-1600 metres at two, three & four.

He was a Group 1 winner in each of those three seasons and was unbeaten at 1400 metres.
