Our stallion roster has had many highlights this season.
Love You, Orlando Vici, Used To Me and Quaker Jet have all produced group 1 winners.
Now they are looking to cap it off with more in the Vicbred Super Series.
2yo and 3yo trotting heats are being run at Maryborough on Monday, with the G1 finals set for New Year’s Eve at Melton.
In addition, Love You will again finish at the top of the Australian 3yo premierships.
It is time to start looking towards the 2023 Melbourne Nutrien Standardbred Yearling Sale - catalogue is available online at https://portal.nutrienequine.com.au/catalogues/63 - and again our stallions will be well represented.
This in addition to the second crop of of Volstead US, which spent two seasons with us in Australia.
Volstead has 28 lots - more than any other stallion - going under the hammer, Quaker Jet Fra 7 lots, Love You Fra 3 lots, Used To me Fra 2 lots and The Best Madrik Fra and Timoko Fra 1 lot each.
This sale is on April 1-3.
