The Egmont Racing Club, in conjunction with Rich Hill Stud, are selling a nomination to first season sire Ace High. Proceeds from the sale will go towards sponsorship of the Gr.3 Rich Hill Stud Taranaki Breeders' Stakes (1400m).
Ace High is a dual Group One winning son of High Chaparral. Prepared by David Payne, he was a winner at two and dominated as a spring three-year-old, winning the Gr.3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) before successive Group One victories in the Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) and VRC Derby (2500m).
As an autumn three-year-old he was a close-up fourth in the Gr.1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) behind Kementari, Pierata and Trapeze Artist and was a nose second to Levendi in the Gr.1 Australian Derby (2400m).
In a season thwarted by rain-affected tracks, Ace High won the Gr.2 Hill Stakes (2000m) at four, defeating Group One winners It’s Somewhat and Egg Tart and was beaten 1.6 lengths in the Gr.1 Australian Cup (2000m).
He retires the winner of five races and A$2.3 million in prizemoney and will stand at $10,000 +GST this year.
The Egmont Racing Club are holding their Rich Hill Taranaki Breeders' Stakes Meeting at Hawera on Saturday October 12.
