Welcome from Christoph

The 2017 breeding season is fast approaching and for those who breed thoroughbreds, their thoughts turn to breeding that perfect racehorse. To help where we can, we welcome you to the 2017 Bombora Downs stud website and our exciting line up of stallions.

We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first foals of Dandino (GB). This Group-1 winning son of Dansili, took to his new role with the ease of the professional he is - easy to work with, with a great attitude. His siblings and their off-spring have had a great year, with wins coming from 1200m to 3200m. And don’t be put off by the word stayer, as most have all started as 2yo’s either winning or placing. This is a versatile family that can produce a Spring Classic winner, and train on to win those exciting Cup races.

The first crop of Warhorse (NZ) have developed into some very nice yearlings; scopey youngsters with a bit of size about them. There will be a few off to the Yearling Sales in 2018, and we are hoping that they will be well received. Quite a few of our clients booked their mares back to Warhorse (NZ) off the back of the foals that were produced. He was a champion 2yo, a classics performer, and trains on for those all-important weight-for-age races. Free of Danehill but crosses well with Danehill line mares.

Jungle Ruler was a legend of the turf, who from humble beginnings, placed in black type, placed as a 2yo, won races in every calendar year of his racing life and raced until he was 9 years old. His progeny are getting rave reviews from breakers and trainers, and we are confidently waiting for the new racing season to let them show us what they've got.

From limited opportunities, Therock is showing that he can get city class winners, plus they are ever so consistent, racing regularly and putting in honest performances every time. He has a couple in the wings that are showing promise, so there is some good anticipation for the future.

Lago Delight progeny have had another very consistent year with winners coming at distances from 950m up to 2000m, on turf, synthetic and dirt plus the age range is from 3yo to 9yo. Versatile, tough, durable and reliable; that's his progeny to a tee. He has a whopping 67.9% winners to runners for the year and they are across a variety of broodmare sires.

Bombora Downs services are on offer to all breeders from conception to breaking in.
