Gio Ponti drawcard at Arrowfield Stud

USA turf champion Gio Ponti will be a major drawcard at Arrowfield Stud’s Open House in August.

Arrowfield’s 2012 roster is headed by champion sires Redoute’s Choice, Flying Spur and this season’s leading third season sire Snitzel.

The 11 stallions will be available for inspection during six sessions over four days from Thursday, August 23 to Sunday, August 26.  No appointments will be needed for visitors who will be personally hosted by Arrowfield staff as the stallions are paraded.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for breeders and owners to inspect particular stallions at a time that suits them, in a relaxed, conversational setting,” Arrowfield’s Jon Freyer said.  “We’ve also scheduled two full parades to allow inspection of the entire roster within an hour or so on the Friday and Saturday mornings.”
