Wellfield Lodge is encouraging broodmare owners to ‘breed with confidence’ this year after announcing their stallion fees for the upcoming season.
The Manawatu farm will stand each of their three resident stallions Alamosa, Road to Rock and Vespa, at $5000+GST.
As an added bonus, the farm are offering any breeder that sends two mares to the same stallion an additional incentive. When two mares owned by the same entity are sent to the same stallion, the first mare in foal will be at a cost of $5,000 +GST, and the second mare in foal will be free.
“We believe this offer represents outstanding value and has been offered to encourage breeders to consider breeding their mares at an affordable level,” Wellfield Lodge principal Bill Gleeson said.
Four-time Group One winner Alamosa has established himself as a proven sire, his leading performer of the season was On The Rocks who won the Gr.2 Rich Hill Mile (1600m) before taking out the Gr.1 Herbie Dyke (2000m) two starts later.
Road To Rock has had a standout season due to his best performer, Hong Kong champion Beauty Generation. The seven-time Group One winner is currently the world’s highest rated active racehorse, and the highest earner in history to have raced in Hong Kong.
Rounding out the stallion trio is champion two-year-old of his year Vespa. His oldest crop is rising two and with positive reports coming through from trainers, Wellfield Lodge are eagerly anticipating their arrival at the racetrack in the 2019-20 season.
