Alabar's 2016/17 Service Fees Announced

Alabar's 2016/17 Service Fees Announced

We are pleased to announce the service fees for our 2016/17 roster which we believe is the best we have ever offered.

The leading sires Art Major and Mach Three once again head the roster.

This season we are thrilled to announce the additions of Rock N Roll Heaven, Roll With Joe and Sportswriter.

Having previously stood at Pepper Tree Farms, all three are Group One producing stallions.

With his oldest only three in the Southern Hemisphere, Rock N Roll Heaven has already put together a very impressive resume. He is clearly the leading young sire in Australia and New Zealand.

His three-year-olds include no less than four Group One winners and ten stakes winners overall.

Those Group One winners are Heavens Trend, Jilliby Jitterbug, Frankie Rocks and the brilliant NZ pacer Heaven Rocks.

Roll With Joe is of course Bettor’s Delight’s brother but he is also clearly forging his own path. He was the leading two-year-old sire in New York in 2015 and, with his oldest only two in Australia, he has already sired a Group One winner – Allmightyjoelouis 1:56.9.

Sportswriter continues to be a prolific sire of age-group winners and the son of Artsplace will surely remain very popular with breeders.

His two year olds include the smart performers Wesley 1:57.4, Fastestgirlintown 1:57.9, Mitch Maguire 1:57.7 and The Lone Ranger 1:59.6.

In a boon for New Zealand breeders, Sportswriter will stand this season at Alabar NZ.

This is on the back of him producing six qualifiers and two NZ Jewels finalists from his two-year-old crop of just fourteen foals.

Rock N Roll Heaven, Roll With Joe and Sportswriter are not the only new additions to the Alabar roster however.

We will also be standing the Group One winning son of Love You in Amore Stride.

Raced by Emilio and Mary Rosati, Amore Stride is a beautiful rangy chestnut and a classically European-type.

His conformation and looks are backed up with a sensational pedigree – he is the highest priced trotting yearling ever to sell in New Zealand.

He joins fellow trotters Majestic Son and Peak on the Alabar roster.

The roster also includes the exciting young stallions A Rocknroll Dance (standing at Nevele R), Alta Christiano, Auckland Reactor, Betterthancheddar, He’s Watching and Sunshine Beach.

While the Group One producing stallions Courage Under Fire, Elsu, Grinfromeartoear and Shadow Play round out the incredible line-up.

With 18 high class stallions on offer to breeders it promises to be a really exciting season ahead.
