Group winner Shamoline Warrior will be coming home to Australia for the 2017 breeding season to stand at Carin Park, near Hamilton in South West Victoria.
The son of Shamardal has been relocated from Monty and Judy Henderson’s Bluegables Farm in Cambridge, where he stood for five successful seasons in New Zealand.
Carin Park’s Ron Daniels is excited about the physically impressive stallion coming home to the state of his racing success.
“Due to Blue Gables needing to find a new home for Shamoline Warrior, we thought the best place would be Victoria where he enjoyed a happy hunting ground during his racing career,”
“Having stood stallions at Carin Park in pervious years, including Group 1 Winners Rebel Raider (sibling of Shamoline Warrior) and Curata Storm alongside the very talented gallopers Solo Flyer and Chatline, we are delighted to be standing Shamoline Warrior in his debut Australian season,” Daniels said.
Shamoline Warrior proved to be a real athlete on the track, winning on debut as a two-year-old with a last to first effort for his trainer Mark Kavanagh.
At three he was successful in the Listed VRC Super Impose Stakes and followed up with a resounding win in the Group 3 MRC Norman Robinson Stakes at Caulfield.
A favourite in the Victorian Derby, unfortunately a mild virus caused him to be scratched on the eve of the Group 1 race.
A son of the champion Shamardal, Shamoline Warrior has a strong pedigree with current black type performers and producers in his immediate family.
Shamoline Warrior began his stud career in New Zealand in 2011 and is now the sire of 29 progeny to race with 15 winners. He has an impressive 51% winners to runners ratio and earnings of almost $500,000, including his first black type winner, the Shaune Ritchie trained Nikita.
The new Victorian stallion is out of the Group 1 producing and Group 1 performing dam Picholine (Dehere). All six of her live foals have been winners including multiple Group 1 winner Rebel Raider (Reset).
Rebel Raider is now a very successful stallion in his own right with Group winners and performers including Waging War, Pretty Punk and Rockstar Rebel.
Picholine has also produced Listed winner Cadillac Mountain (Reset), multiple city winner Lucques (High Chaparral) and city winning Sultah (Exceed and Excel) the dam of stakes winning Haybah.
Picholine, who was most recently part of the Moodie family’s Yungaburra broodmare band, passed away in 2015.
Shamoline Warrior’s black type winner Nikita has also moved to Australia after being purchased by Rosemont Stud and is now in training with Darren Weir.
With winners in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Macau, Shamoline Warrior has a good number of weanlings, yearling and two-year-olds still to run.
Other winners for Shamoline Warrior include Interstellar, Keep On Coming, Stone Warrior, Te Waewae, Bushido, Equilbrium, and the promising Konodon, currently in training in Sydney with Chris Waller, who won two starts back.
Shamoline Warrior’s progeny have sold for up to $125,000 at the NZB Ready To Run sales and are currently based in the best stables with trainers Roger James, Mike Moroney, Chris Waller, Darren Weir, Hawkes Racing and Shaune Ritchie.
“Shamoline Warrior is physically a large, muscular, and big-boned stallion, in a similar mold to his half brother Rebel Raider, and will be a good out cross to the Danehill influenced broodmares,” Daniels said.
Carin Park will stand Shamoline Warrior for the 2017 season for incredible value at only $3,500. Please contact Ron Daniels at Carin Park on 0421 609 668 for more information.
