The Power of Lonhro
Tara Madgwick - Monday September 16
If you own a Lonhro mare, you will want to read this story.

Lonhro is making his presence felt as a broodmare sireChampion sires frequently cross over to become champion broodmare sires and Darley's charismatic favourite Lonhro is heading in that direction as sire of the dam of five stakes-winners so far this season headed by his first Group I winner as a broodmare sire in Gatting.

Last Saturday, Lonhro not only sired the dam of Group I VRC Makybe Diva Stakes winner Gatting (Hard Spun(USA), but also the dam of smart stakes-winner Wayupinthesky (Snitzel), those two stakes-winners joining his previous three for the season in So Si Bon (So You Think), Brown Ben (Big Brown (USA) and Gaulois (Street Cry (IRE).

The power of Lonhro mares was put into focus on the international stage last week when his Group I winning daughter Bounding produced a Curlin colt that made $4.1 at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale, read about him here

Lonhro mares have produced 25 stakes-winners to date in total and he runs at 64% winners to runners as a broodmare sire with his ability to nick with a wide variety of sirelines no doubt helping the cause of his daughters.

He might be 21, but Lonhro still looks outstanding and covered 117 mares last spring. He stands at Darley this year at a fee of $77,000.
