Reward For Effort was in the Top 10 among Australia’s most popular stallions in 2013 and he’s gearing up for another big book at Chatswood Stud this year.
The Group 1 winning son of Exceed And Excel covered 177 mares last year following books of 150 (2011) and 173 (2012).
Darley champion Exceed And Excel sires exceptional two year-olds around the world and, in recent years, has been represented by the winners of three Blue Diamonds, two Sires’ Produce Stakes, two Champagne Stakes plus a Golden Slipper and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.
Reward for Effort has to be a great chance to produce some early two year olds. His first yearlings have been well received this year although a significant number of them were retained by their breeders.
Of those to go through the sale-ring, Chatswood sold the top-priced Reward for Effort – Go With The Wind yearling to Peter Moody for $170,000.
Reward for Effort’s fee remains at $11,000 (inc gst).
Anacheeva has all the hallmarks of a future successful stallion. He was a Group 1 Caulfield Guineas winner and his brother (Headturner) and half-sister (O’Marilyn) also saluted at the elite level.
His sire Anabaa has been represented by 15 individual Group 1 winners and 6 of them have come in Australia / NZ.
Anacheeva looks extraordinary good value at only $6,600 (inc gst).
