Breeders Rewarded at Chatswood Stud

Reward For Effort was in the Top 10 among Australia’s most popular stallions in 2013 and he’s gearing up for another big book at Chatswood Stud this year.

The Group 1 winning son of Exceed And Excel covered 177 mares last year following books of 150 (2011) and 173 (2012).

Darley champion Exceed And Excel sires exceptional two year-olds around the world and, in recent years, has been represented by the winners of three Blue Diamonds, two Sires’ Produce Stakes, two Champagne Stakes plus a Golden Slipper and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.

Reward for Effort has to be a great chance to produce some early two year olds.  His first yearlings have been well received this year although a significant number of them were retained by their breeders.

Of those to go through the sale-ring, Chatswood sold the top-priced Reward for Effort – Go With The Wind yearling to Peter Moody for $170,000.

Reward for Effort’s fee remains at $11,000 (inc gst).

Anacheeva has all the hallmarks of a future successful stallion.  He was a Group 1 Caulfield Guineas winner and his brother (Headturner) and half-sister (O’Marilyn) also saluted at the elite level.

His sire Anabaa has been represented by 15 individual Group 1 winners and 6 of them have come in Australia / NZ.

Anacheeva looks extraordinary good value at only $6,600 (inc gst).

Purrealist has the ability to sire a Group 1 winner like Hawkspur and he’s also getting stakes winners like Storm Approach, Melrose Place and Adjuster among plenty of metropolitan winners.

A Group 3 Guineas Prelude winner at Caulfield, he is by Tale Of The Cat and is super value at $5,500 (inc gst).

All fees are on 31st March, 2015 payment terms with a transferable free return (conditions apply).
