Welcome from Christoph
Welcome to the 2016 Bombora Downs stud website - to those of us that love the idea of breeding the perfect racehorse this is both a time of anticipation and planning. Bombora Downs is proud to announce this season’s stallion line-up will include Dansili’s brilliant staying son Dandino who thrilled us all with a running second in the G1 Caulfiled Cup as well as many other great performances on Australian soil. Dandino proved himself as one of the best 2400m horses of his time travelling to five different countries and running to an international rating of 115.
We also await with anticipation the arrival of the first foals from the very exciting Group 1-winning NZ Champion 2YO of 2011-12, Warhorse. Standing with Warhorse are three stallions who offer breeders variety and value.
Jungle Ruler (by Lion Hunter) is entering his third season at stud and has enjoyed the support of local breeders wishing to access that fierce determination the handsome grey was known for. He's a strong, neat stallion who retired sound after 20 wins, 12 seconds and 12 thirds. His foals—eight out of 10 are grey—have his physique and the same determined manner about them.
Therock’s (by Fastnet Rock) oldest progeny are only three, and starting to show promise on the racetrack. Therock is producing powerfully built youngsters who look the part and we are excited by the prospect of what they will do on the track as they mature.
Bombora Downs’ stalwart stallion, Lago Delight (Encosta De Lago), completes the stallion roster for season 2016. This consistent and versatile stallion gets winners week in, week out from 1200m to 2400m in any conditions, including synthetic tracks. Trainers love the Lago Delights because they are tough sound horses with a great will to win.
Bombora Downs services are on offer to all breeders from conception to breaking in.
