Victorian stallions trifecta in UK
Breednet - Tuesday July 16
It was an interesting and no doubt rare result at UK's Doncaster races last Thursday, when Victorian stallions sired the trifecta in the second race on the card.

Cable BayThe 2 year-old 1200 metre Steelphalt EBF Maiden Stakes was won by the William Haggas-trained St Ives, who is by Woodside Park's shuttle stallion Cable Bay.

Finishing a short head behind the race favourite was first starter Mr Jones And Me. Trained by Tom Dascombe, the colt is by Darley Northwood sire Brazen Beau.

Also on debut and securing third place after stumbling during the race, the Kevin Ryan trained Soaring Star (IRE) is a colt by Rosemont Stud's Starspangledbanner.

All three shuttle stallions are making their marks on the international breeding stage. Currently a leading European First Season Sire, Cable Bay continues to get wins on the board, with 3 Stakes winners and 12 individual winners to his name to date.

The Australian progeny of Brazen Beau have proved extremely popular, with yearlings selling for up to $1,150,000 this year. With 6 Australian winners this season, including three stakes-placed runners, Brazen Beau also sired his first Northern Hemisphere stakes-winner in early June with Avengers Queen.

A regular shuttler, the resurgent stud career of Starspangledbanner is building momentum in the Northern Hemisphere. At stud, his numbers continue to be extraordinary off relatively low foal numbers, including a stakes winners to runners percentage of an impressive 8.5% (as at April). Connections are excited to welcome Starspangledbanner back to Victoria and Rosemont Stud this season.

Cable Bay stands at Woodside Park Stud in 2019 for a fee of $13,200.

Brazen Beau stands at Darley Northwood in 2019 for a fee of $49,500.

Starspangledbanner stands at Rosemont Stud in 2019 for a fee of $22,000.
