As one exceptionally famous daughter of Vegas Showgirl prepares for her maiden season at stud, a quality son of the same very celebrated broodmare has already commenced his sophomore season in the Victorian stallion ranks.
Boulder City, a Snitzel half-brother to the ever-so-mighty Winx, began his stud duties in 2018 when joining the stallion roster of Riverbank Stud in Victoria. His maiden season proved to be a resounding success, the unraced entire serving a book of 94 mares.
The first foals of the young stallion have begun to hit the ground and the early indications are that the flawless conformation the female family is now renowned for is evident in the latest generation of the breed.
In addition to Winx, Bounder City is a full-brother to the Group winning 2-year-old El Divino. A former member of the Gai Waterhouse stable, El Divino claimed the Group 3 ATC Kindergarten Stakes in one of two wins as a juvenile before a very promising racing career was cut short in its prime.
As an unraced sibling to arguably the greatest racemare of all-time as well as to a Pattern race winning 2-year-old, Boulder City offers broodmare owners bloodlines of unparalleled achievement at a basement budget fee of just $5500. Furthermore, the sireline he represents continues to develop exponentially.
Already sire-sons of three-time Champion Sire Snitzel include three individual proven sires of stakes winners, and that’s even before the likes of Russian Revolution, Invader, Trapeze Artist, Menari, Thronum, Showtime etc, are represented by their first runners.
All things considered, Boulder City provides an opportunity to access the most fashionable sireline in the Australian Stud Book, as well as the immediate female family of the most decorated racehorse in Australasian thoroughbred racing history.
