The quality and athleticism of Deep Impact stallion Satono Aladdin’s first Japanese foals created a big impression in July at the prestigious Japan Racing Horse Association’s 2019 Select Sale, his foals averaging a massive NZ$613,000.
With his first New Zealand progeny now arriving, they look set to make a similar impression with Australasian breeders.
“We have managed to get photos of his first five New Zealand born foals and they’re exhibiting the same quality, balance and athleticism that made his Japanese born foals so popular,” commented Rich Hill managing director John Thompson.
“The proof is in the pudding and three of the owners of these mares have already decided to send their mares back to Satono Aladdin, based on the lovely foals they have on the ground.
