Support continues to grow amongst the harness racing community for the victims of the Leeton Paceway fire, where five horses perished.
Alabar Bloodstock has generously donated services to two of its stallions, Art Official and Safari, while Independent Portable Buildings, headed by former HRNSW Board Member Rob Nalder, has also donated a service to Armbro Operative.
Art Official stands at a fee of $3575 including GST at Alabar’s NZ farm. He is the richest son of Art Major at stud and of course the only horse to beat the great Somebeachsomewhere, in a world record 1.47. His oldest crop in Australasia are yearlings this season.
Safari is a record breaking, Group One winning son of the immortal Fake Left. A Stakeswinner at two and an Australasian Record Holder, Safari stands at Alabar’s Victorian base at a fee of $1650.
Armbro Operative is the sire of over 1000 individual winners with prizemoney earnings in excess of $46 million dollars and over 100 $100,000 earners. Among his most noted performer are the amazing Fleur De Lil and this season’s impressive Group 1 winner Beauty Secret (Vic Oaks). Armbro Operative also stands at the Victorian farm at a fee of $3300 including GST.
HRNSW has set up an eBay account where the stallion services are available for the public to make bids on line. Art Offical’s service is the first to be listed and the ten day auctions ends on 14 September. You can search for the auction by name or follow the link below:
