Badlands Hanover.

A NUMBER of top stallions have now been registered in New South Wales for the 2016/17 season.

Following the recent announcement by Harness Racing NSW to include the progeny of frozen semen stallions, whose semen is stored in NSW and distributed from NSW, it was the key factor for alphastud to register their stallions in the state.

The new stallion agency is off to a great start offering the services of world-class stallions McArdle, Badlands Hanover and Life Sign from NSW.

Joining your interstate or local mares to any of these stallions this season will make your foal eligible for the NSW Breeders Challenge race series’, certificates and bonuses.

If you bred and continue to own eligible and sustained progeny you'll take home up to $10,800 for their first “C” class win in NSW.

McArdle is fighting hard for supremacy as the United States Leading two-year-old stallion by earnings competing with Somebeachsomewhere, Bettors Delight and American Ideal.

He is expected to get strong numbers at a service fee of $2,500 and is exceptional value when you consider that the US has jumped this fee by 20 per cent to $US5000.

Badlands Hanover is the sire of West Australian star Beaudiene Boaz and grand-sire of the current leading US stakes earner for the season Wiggle It Jiggleit.

Life Sign is a Hall of Famer and ranks 11th as the greatest sire of all time by progeny earnings in the US.
