English Group 1 winner Crowded House (GB) has transferred from NSW to Victoria for the 2017 breeding season.
Wyadup Valley Farm principal Trevor Delroy initially stood the Racing Post Trophy winner at Wattle Grove Stud in Berrima. The only starter from his first NSW crop this season has been Pakenham 2yo placegetter Malika.
Crowded House (Rainbow Quest) was trained by Ben Cecil for a partnership that included J Paul Reddam and he was also stakes placed in Dubai and USA. His dam Wiener Wald (Woodman) is a half-sister to G1 American Oaks winner Ticker Tape.
Champion sires Storm Cat and Royal Academy appear on his extended pedigree page and another close relation – Reckless Abandon – was a Group 1 winner of the Middle Park Stakes and Prix Morny.
Crowded House will stand at Delroy’s Lancefield property for an $11,000 (inc gst) fee.
