Rich Hill Stallions Pack in Breeders
Breednet - Media Release - Friday, 11 August 2017
The pulling power of Rich Hill Stud's 2017 roster was emphasised at their recent stallion parade.

An enthusiastic crowd of more than 150 breeders ventured to the Walton farm to inspect exciting newcomer Vadamos, a top-quality son of Monsun and his associate sires Shocking, Proisir, Pentire, and Jimmy Choux.

Last Sunday morning started with a meet and greet for shareholders in Vadamos (pictured below) and inspection of the stallion, followed by a public parade in the afternoon where all five stallions were on show.

The overwhelming feedback received from all in attendance is that Vadamos is a stand-out physical type, absolute quality.

With his first mare book filling fast, a number of breeders had pencilled in bookings subject to sighting the stallion and those who viewed him for first time were immediately won over.

The popularity of Vadamos is following a similar path to his retirement in the northern hemisphere at Tally-Ho Stud in Ireland, where he was fully subscribed.


Four Group winners including New Zealand Oaks' winner Fanatic with 11 stakes performers from his first two crops. This spring sees Chocante, Antonio Giuseppe and Fanatic among his progeny heading to the Melbourne spring carnival.


The most popular first season sire of his year with 145 mares bred. His weanlings were well received at the Karaka May sale and he is assured of another big book this year.


With four Group One winners and 13 stakes performers in the last two seasons, Pentire's sire prowess remains as potent as ever. Only Redoute's Choice and Fastnet Rock can match his 16 individual Group One winners from their Australasia-bred progeny.

Jimmy Choux

New Zealand's leading first season sire of 2015-16, he had 22 first crop winners and looks to have an exciting spring ahead spearheaded by Tony Pike's unbeaten three-year-old Bostonian, who is on the classic trail.
