Newcomers parade at Vinery

Incoming sires Press Statement and Headwater will launch a new-look roster at Vinery Stud’s annual stallion parade on August 20 and 21.

They are the first additions to Vinery’s line-up since champion colt All Too Hard retired in 2013.  Reaching his popularly will be a tall order but both newcomers are sure to catch the eye and build their books during the weekend parades.

More Than Ready’s eagerly-awaited return is one week down into a three-week spell in quarantine.  ANZ Bloodstock published a picture of the champ on Thursday morning with a Vinery tweet tagged “looks unreal & ready for the stallion parades”.

He arrives back in the Hunter Valley a few days before inspections and will receive a hero’s welcome after an outstanding year in both hemispheres.

It doesn’t seem that long ago Vinery launched All Too Hard and now he’s getting ready for a fourth book of mares!  His 2yo colts and fillies will start progressing at the pointy end of the autumn carnival but there are reports of a several precocious ones among the first crop.

Prominent 2016 sires Mossman, Testa Rossa, Myboycharlie, Pluck and Husson round out a 10-horse roster on show at Vinery which is located in Segenhoe Road, Scone
August 20 & 21:  Times 8.30 brekky for 9.30am parades
