Vinery Stud’s annual stallion parades will be held from Thursday – Saturday this week to coincide with the Scone Cup carnival.
It’s the first opportunity for broodmare owners to inspect exciting first-season sires Press Statement and Headwater since they were retired last month.
Press Statement (Hinchinbrook) will let down into a magnificent young stallion and retires as the only 2yo Gr.1 winner to train on to win a Gr.1 as a 3yo. Unbeaten as a 2yo, trainer Chris Waller rated him a better juvenile than Zoustar and Brazen Beau.
Headwater (Exceed And Excel) has that all-important speed-on-speed in his DNA being by a Newmarket Hcp winner our of an Oakleigh Plate winner. Jockey Blake Shinn called him the “complete package” after winning the G2 Silver Slipper Stakes at Rosehill. Lightly raced, Headwater has settled in extremely well.
Group 1 champion All Too Hard will also be available for inspection fresh from a sensational round of results with his first-crop yearlings. At a $55,000 (inc gst) service fee, he’s the best value sire in the Hunter Valley off a $244,048 average at the Inglis Easter Sale.
Vinery will parade all 9 stallions on Thursday, Friday & Saturday this week (May 12-14) at 8:30am for a 9:00am start.
