Meet Quilly Park’s 2017 foals

Last Spring, Quilly Park celebrated our biggest crop yet of 9 foals on the ground by some of Australia’s top stallions.

Our Group 2 winning mare Avienus had a filly by Darley sire Street Boss (Street Cry x Blushing Ogygian).

Waitui Belle had a colt by Caulfield Guineas winner Helmet (Exceed And Excel x Accessories) and Varone had a Reset colt (Zabeel x Assertive Lass).

 

We’ve spent a number of years building Quilly Park’s infrastructure to support our boutique breeding operation. We’ve almost completed all of our facilities ready for preparation and presentation of our bloodstock prior to the forthcoming sales.

All at Quilly Park are really excited by our first full book of weanlings – 9 in total. Being a boutique operation allows our team to spend more time with each animal prior to weaning. The strategy has shown enormous benefits upfront. The weaning process was calm for our foals and mares, a tribute to Ange and Rhian.

We’re looking forward to seeing the development of each animal over their next phase before they go to market.

First foals for Friendwithbenefits and Rubyone

Friendwithbenefits had her first foal, a Panzer Division colt (Redoute’s Choice x Desert Fight).

Rubyone’s first foal is a colt by speed sire Denman (Lonhro x Peach), winner of the  Group 1 Golden Rose.

 

Four foals from our new broodmares

Earlier last year, we expanded our broodmare band. One of our newest broodmares Suzy Smart was a Listed winner as a two year old, she had a Shooting to Win colt.

Devious Flight had a Warrior’s Reward colt and we’re really excited about Great Cross‘ Dawn Approach filly.

Another new broodmare, Barabba Star had a Stryker colt. Barabba Star had 4 wins on the track and we’re looking forward to seeing what her offspring can produce. Her Dam Prima Donna was a winner herself and produced eight winners from twelve foals to race.
