Breednet - Media Release - Tuesday, 8 August 2017
Sun Stud's exciting young stallion, Squamosa has taken out the title of Victoria's Champion First Season Sire for the 2016/17 racing season.

SquamosaAn explosive racehorse himself, Squamosa was unbeaten at two, with a win in the Group 3 Run to the Rose Handicap and was a gallant Group 1 runner up in theSTC Golden Rose.

Hitting the ground running with only 11 progeny to race, Squamosa's first two runners were both stakes placed winners, the fillies Derasa and Kiwi Ida. A further five runners have been placed in their careers to date.

Being the only son at stud in Victoria of boom stallion Not a Single Doubt (who stands for a service fee of $88,000), Squamosa has been a popular option for local breeders to tap into his highly sort after pedigree.

Sun Stud's David Grant is not surprised that the exciting stallion is achieving great first up results onthe track and generating large numbers of mares in the covering shed.

Squamosa covered a career high 121 mares in 2016, giving him every opportunity for his progeny to succeed on the racetrack in the future.

Becoming more popular each year, Sun Stud has recently boosted their level of shareholding in the promising stallion, following on from some keen interest from a number of Hunter Valley farms.

"When we were made aware of the attention Squamosa was generating up north, me moved quickly to increase our ownership, ensuring that he stays in Victoria to support local breeders and the Victorian breeding industry," Grant said.

Squamosa stands in at Sun Stud Victoria for an competitive fee of $6600 (GST incl) no doubt making him an attractive choice for broodmare owners again this season.
