In a huge coup for Chatswood Stud, their new Group 1 winning and producing sire, All American, will cover Naturalist – the dam of boom horse Royal Symphony.
Greg Willis from Chatswood Stud said Joe Vella of Wingrove Park, the breeder of the group winning colt, has been a loyal client since breeding to Geiger Counter in the 1990’s.
“Naturalist will be no stranger to Chatswood Stud, having visited several of our stallions in the past,” Willis said.
“For Joe, the choice of All American for his beloved Naturalist was a simple one.
“Despite big offers from big studs, Joe decided to replicate what has worked previously.Royal Symphony is by Domesday (Red Ransom).
“All American is also by Red Ransom so the resultant foal will be a three-quarter relation to Royal Symphony.”
Royal Symphony ran a luckless fourth in Saturday’s Group 1 Caulfield Guineas. Trainer Tony McEvoy has now indicated he will give the colt at chance in the W.S. Cox Plate against the mighty Winx.
