STAYING OR SPRINTING, SLR DOES IT ALL

Jan 21, 2014

Predicting the breeding trends before they become ‘the flavour of the day’ is the key to SLR’s high probability of success. 

Foaling a Dubleo colt in 2008, it was no surprise when Dubleo sprinter ‘Silver Sands’ banked over $150,000 for his connections in the Inglis Banner (1000m) at Moonee Valley 27 October after the purchase price of only $35,000 at the 2013 Inglis Classic yearling sale.   

SLR analysed trends in the sires market in 2007, and forecast a sharp escalation in the progeny’s winnining strike rate, and the ‘Lodge’s breeding analysts’ forecast has been proven by 'Silversands’, a Dubleo, whose strike rate has soared since returning to Vinery Stud.
