The continued support of Grandview resident stallions by owners sending their quality mares is very exciting to see. We had an exciting weekend watching several well related horses run very well.
Quite Canny, a Grandview resident, is a half sister to the very exciting racehorse, Royal Symphony. (Do yourself a favour and watch his win below, I still don't know how he won that!) Quite Canny has been served by Under the Louvre in what looks a very exciting match and will no doubt be followed up by good judges.
We also keenly watched Nieta run a terrific race in the Shorts in Sydney where she placed 3rd in a very hot race, with the likes of English and Chautauqua behind her. Nieta's mare, Brookton Flash resides at Grandview and has been served by speed sire Whittington. Again, good judges will be all over this resultant progeny breed for speed and no doubt early on their career.
It's also worth noting that Jet Spur currently sits in 2nd place for winners on the QLD Sires list, just 1 winner behind the leader!
We'd love to have your mare visit Grandview Stud....
The team at Grandview wishes to thank all who came out to the Stallion Parade and Open Day yesterday. It was by far the largest turn out we have had at the farm which is a testament to the quality of stallions that we are serving at Grandview.
There was a terrific response to the buzz freshman sire, Under the Louvre. He was magnificently turned out on the day and is a real athletic specimen. It is no wonder QLD and interstate breeders are very excited about his prospects.
Whittington turned on a real show. So powerfully built, he impressed many with his physique and power base strength. It was also great to see some of his progeny on the ground.
And Jet Spur, not be outdone, looked in fantastic order with his chestnut coat glistening in the sun. The 2015 Champion Sire has had several winners within the last week, looks likely to challenge again. And looking at him, there's plenty more to come.
Thanks again to all who came out, and a special mention to the Grandview family & team for supporting what was a terrific day.
For those breeders with enquiries about who to best place your mare with, please feel free to contact us.
