Casino Prince has been widely touted as the best value stallion standing in the Hunter Valley this year. This is most likely due to the accolades of his progeny on racetracks around the world. In 2019 he’s enjoyed 3 new Group winners (BACCARAT BABY, THE CANDY MAN & WHAT’S NEW), a Royal Ascot contender and, again, consistent winners week in, week out.
By a Champion Sire, Casino Prince was himself an Australian Champion First and Second Season Sire and has sired of an Australian Champion, ALL TOO HARD, and a two-time Champion Sprinter and Horse of the Year in Singapore – LIM’S CRUISER.
An all-round proven producer, his average progeny earnings are well over $82,000 and he has a strike-rate of over 69% winners to runners. Casino Prince is fast becoming one of the country’s most prolific stallions, which is evidenced by the fact that he is never without a headline horse. In 2015/16 he was the best value stallion to sire over 100 winners for the season, which included 6 individual stakes winners; ESCADO, HOOKED, MIGHTY LUCKY, CASINO DANCER, SLOTS, and TIMELESS PRINCE.
Since then he has continued the trend and sired over 100 winners per year for the last 3 consecutive racing seasons; 2016, 2017 & 2018, being 1 of only 10 sires to achieve this. Of those prolific sires, he is the ONLY one to stand for a fee under $26,000. He is again on the way to achieving 100 winners for the season and looks to be again well supported by breeders, with plenty of early bookings.
