Fresh off a record breaking yearling and weanling sales season, Mornington Peninsula stallion farm Bombora Downs is gearing up for a busy breeding season.
And a great deal of that vigor relates to Warhorse, the farm’s exciting Group 1 winning 2YO sire and a son of the mighty General Nediym.
Bombora Downs is offering breeders a special third season deal of two mares for the price of one for Warhorse, who stands at $7,700 (GST incl).
The offer also includes a free return until your foals turn 12 months old. The Free Return is transferable to another mare of the owner’s choice or to the new owner if the mare is sold (subject to conditions).
Warhorse has a magnificent first crop of foals that were born last year.
Many are entered into the 2018 Inglis Yearling Sales series such as a half-brother to a Group 1 Rosehill Guineas winner and foals from an AJC winning Danehill half sister to a Golden Slipper Winner, a multiple Group 2 winner including the VRC Matriarch Skates and a multiple Group 3 winning Group 1 placed mare who is already the dam of a Group 3 winner.
Warhorse is a neat, well-balanced powerful individual with excellent conformation.
He was a two-year-old champion and an outstanding winner of the Group 1 Diamond Stakes over 1200 metres in New Zealand.
At three, he won the Bonecrusher Stakes 1400 metres and ran an unlucky place (beaten a neck) to Sacred Falls in the 1600 metre Group 1 NZ 2000 Guineas followed by a second in the Group 2 WFA Apollo Stakes in Australia against the older horses.
His multiple Group 1 winning trainer, Jason Bridgman (now based at Pakenham) said Warhorse was the best 2YO he had ever trained.
“He had a blistering turn of foot and a fantastic temperament. He was completely sound and a pleasure to train,” Bridgman said.
Bombora Downs Studmaster Christoph Bruechert says “our willingness to deal will make Warhorse the best value VOBIS sire in town.”
Bruechert recognises that it is difficult to match it with the major commercial studs.
“What makes us stand out is that we do an outstanding job on the horses and give great individual and personal service to our clients,” he adds.
