Aquis has announced their 2018 stallion roster comprising some thirteen stallions across both NSW and QLD;
“Highlighting the roster will be the Champion 2YO Colt and Snitzel’s highest-ever rated 2YO Invader, who will be joined on the Hunter Valley roster by the speed machine Spieth who is the best son of Champion Sire Thorn Park to stand at stud in Australia. Spieth, who came within a lip of winning a Group One in both the Darley Classic and the Lightening Stakes, will be retired at the end of the Brisbane Winter Carnival, with Craig Williams booked to ride him throughout his final campaign.
We are also delighted to welcome the outstanding Group One-winning juvenile The Mission, who is by the emerging sire of sires Choisir. The runaway winner of the Champagne Stakes at 2, The Mission will join our QLD roster following his Brisbane campaign, with James Orman booked to ride him in the Group One Doomben 10,000.
Standing alongside The Mission in Queensland will be Kobayashi. An exceptionally fast 2YO who is completely free of Danehill blood, Kobayashi will be the first son of I am Invincible to stand at stud in Queensland.
In both Invader and The Mission we are delighted to welcome two Group One winning 2YOs to our dual-State roster. Both are by outstanding sires and our commitment to supporting our stallions in the breeding barn and sales ring will continue. Further endorsing our endeavour to support breeders who support us, all Aquis stallions will be restricted to a book of no more than 175 mares per season.”
– Aquis CEO Shane McGrath.
Fees for The Mission and Spieth will be announced upon their retirement from racing after the Brisbane Carnival.
