Heading Windsor Park’s stallion roster will be ‘boom’ young sire Turn Me Loose whose two and three-year-old progeny have enjoyed an exceptional run of success this season in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Turn Me Loose currently leads the table for NZ based second season sires by both individual stakes winners and stakes horses and notably he has sired three individual two-year-old stakes winners to date including this seasons Gr.1 Sistema Stakes winner Lickety Split.
Iffraaj’s Champion Sprinter/Miler has recently sired four black-type Group or Listed winners in both Australia and New Zealand that, along with Licketysplit, also include Melbourne Gr.2 winning 3YO colt Prix De Turn, Adelaide stakes winning 3YO filly Ancient Girl and 2YO Group winner Alabama Gold.
With further outstanding future prospects waiting in the wings, Turn Me Loose has had his 2022 fee set at $20,000.
Returning for his second season at Windsor Park will be the world class, triple Group One winning miler, Circus Maximus who shuttles again from his base at Coolmore, Ireland.
Befitting a champion son of breeding colossus Galileo and dual Royal Ascot Group winning racemare Duntle, breeders from Australia and New Zealand flocked to Circus Maximus in his first season, supporting him with an outstanding first book of 161 quality mares.
With his first foals born this year creating a great impression in Europe showing the dominant strength and athleticism of their sire, Circus Maximus will be offered to Southern Hemisphere breeders at a service fee of $20,000.
As with barnmate Turn Me Loose, successful sire ShamExpress has enjoyed an outstanding season on the racetrack with this season’s dual Group One winner and leading Horse Of The Year contender, Coventina Bay spearheading the charge.
Coventina Bay keeps getting better and is now in her fourth season of racing with prizemoney banked in excess of A$687,000.
Among a raft of week-on-week ShamExpress winners throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia, the exciting Group winning 3YO Shamus and tough and progressive Group Two winning racemare Zola Express are others by O’Reilly’s Gr.1 Newmarket winning son to bolster their sire's excellent stakes winners to runners ratio.
ShamExpress will stand for $10,000.
Encosta De Lago’s good looking Sydney Gr.1 winner Vanbrugh has made an impressive start from a small numerical first crop.
With oldest progeny just 3YO’s Vanbrugh has sired the multiple Group performed filly Mustang Valley and numerous other winners including the exciting Tom Dabernig-trained Miss Balvenie, last start winner of two of her three starts to date in Australia.
Vanbrugh will stand for $6,000 in the 2022 season.
Completing Windsor Park’s 2022 stallion roster are Mongolian Khan and Rageese who will both stand for $4,000.
Mongolian Khan is sire of this season’s exciting Group winning galloper Bankers Choice, who now does his racing in Australia along with the promising Chris Waller trained stayer Black Queen, debut winning 3YO filly Torogene and up and coming gallopers Suppression and Made By Khan.
With a large representation following through, Mongolian Khan winners are set to continue throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Among the winners by Street Cry's impressively conformed young Gr.1 performer Rageese, whose oldest progeny are just 3YO’s, are the promising back-to-back winner Free Bee, With You and Lan Kwai Fong etc.
