Rich Hill Stud Announce Fees
Media Release - Wednesday May 1

Rich Hill stands four exciting young stallions for 2019, each bringing the best of international bloodlines and top class race performance.

With the stud's focus on offering breeders value, the stallion service fees are predominantly unchanged.

VadamosYoung sires Vadamos stand again at $15,000 + GST and Satono Aladdin at $12,500 + GST , while Proisir who is currently one of New Zealand's leading first season sires will stand for an unchanged fee of $7,000 + GST . Proven Group One sire Shocking will stand for a fee of $8500 + GST.

"All our stallions are at very exciting phases in their respective careers," Rich Hill managing director John Thompson said.

" Vadamos, our Group 1 winning son of Monsun, has been extremely well supported in his first two years at stud covering 159 mares in 2017 and 117 mares last season.

"His first crop foals have made a great impression with breeders and we look forward to marketing them at the yearling sales next year."

The blood of Monsun continues to excel on Australian racetracks and at stud his Group 1 winning son Fiorente is currently one of Australia's leading second season sires.

Satono AladdinSatono Aladdin, the Japanese Group One winning son of breed shaping sire Deep Impact, returns to New Zealand for his second breeding season. For a horse with his pedigree, race record and magnificent looks, his fee represents outstanding international value.

"Satono Aladdin is the complete package and we are looking forward to the arrival of his first crop foals next spring with great anticipation," Thompson said.

Proven Group One sire Shocking continues to get winners in all our major markets. His talented son Surprise Baby looks to be one of Australasia's best staying prospects after winning in March the two-mile Gr.2 Adelaide Cup at only his sixth life-time start.

Other stakes performers sired by Shocking this season include Artic Shock, Soleseifei, Mental Telepathy, Camino Rocoso and Kilowatt.

The progeny of Proisir look to have inherited much of their sire's talent. From limited runners he has sired two impressive first crop two-year-old winners and several place-getters. At last count he has also had eight trial winners.

Proisir himself was unraced as a two-year-old, though quickly becoming a star three-year-old during the Sydney spring.

"The feedback from trainers with Proisir's stock has been very positive so we are looking towards the spring with some optimism," says Thompson.

"If they show anything like the physical improvement Proisir showed Gai Waterhouse between two and three they'll be headline horses."

As announced in an earlier press release, Jimmy Choux has been sold and will stand next season at Rosalee Park Stud in Serpentine, West Australia.
