A pair of Victorian stallion owners are generously donating service fees to three locally-based sires for the very special cause of Joey Lynch.
Joey is a 23-year-old Melbourne man, and son of renowned racing scribe Michael Lynch, who has been battling Hodgkins Lymphoma disease for the past seven years.
He is seeking a potential lifeline by trying to raise $800,000 to fund treatment for his debilitating disease in the US.
Three Bridges Thoroughbreds’ Liston family and Rockmount Racing’s Geoff Guest have very kindly donated stallion service fees to the stallions they respectively own:
Anacheeva was a champion Australian three year old miler of his generation winning the stallion making Group 1 Caulfield Guineas. His first progeny will be hitting the track this season.
Geoff Guest said “Rockmount is pleased to be able to support Joey in his quest for a cure.”
Unencumbered was a brilliant winner of the Magic Millions 2yo Classic and is a son of the champion Testa Rossa. He started his stud career in 2014.
Stryker is a group winning son of Fastnet Rock whose progeny have already hit the track and have won and proven themselves at black type level.
Peter Liston said on behalf of the Liston family and their stallion partners Gary Johnson and Richard Pegum they considered it a privilege to be able to support Joey.
“We ask all Australian breeders to support Joey in any way they can as we know the horse industry is a close knit family which always helps in times of need.”
The service fees will be offered in a silent auction format.
Service fees can be used either this current season or in the 2016 season, with a free return if required and will be subject to the stallion farm’s service agreement.
Anyone wishing to bid for a stallion service fee must contact Patrick Clancy at the TBV Office on (03) 9258 4233 or email@example.com.
Bidding will close at 5.00pm on Monday, 2nd November (Melb Cup Eve).
This auction follows the initiative lead by Moe’s Gelagotis brothers to offer their star horse Mourinho by way of an auction to an owner-for-the-day for last Saturday’s Cox Plate. They were generously supported by the Cup Club, Inglis and Moonee Valley Race Club.
