Bianconi arrived at Ridgeview Park last week and has settled in quickly at the Muskerry East property operated by Phil and Fiona Sloane.
“He’s a magnificent looking individual,” Phil said. “I’m making a good connection with him and it’s great to see him relaxing into a daily routine.
“He has a good appetite and he certainly knows when it’s time to come in for his evening dinner! We are delighted to be standing him and we are looking forward to a good season ahead judging by the excellent response from breeders.”
Bianconi (USA) was previous based at Swettenham Stud and owner Adam Sangster will continue to support him. The regally bred Danzig – Fall Aspen stallion has sired over 500 individual winners – 18 at stakes level – at a better than 60% strike-rate.
At 16.2hh, Bianconi is a particularly handsome stallion of great scope, strength and presence and he has always stamped his foals. He will stand for a $5,500 (inc gst) service fee and is outstanding Super VOBIS and VOBIS Gold value for breeders at that price.
Bianconi stands alongside Dr Doute’s, Best Choice and Golden Snake at Ridgeview Park. For further details, contact Phil and Fiona Sloane at Ridgeview Park (0488 525 063) or LP Stallion’s Julie Nairn (0402 901 910) or go to www.lpstallions.com.au
