Patinack stallions relocate in Hunter Valley

Former Patinack Farm sires Trusting and Monaco Consul have found new homes in the Hunter Valley.

Trusting (Tale Of The Cat) will stand the 2015 breeding season at Turangga Farm.  He has been priced at $11,000 (inc gst).

An eye-catching Group 2 winner of the 2009 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at just his second start, he stayed in training and returned to career best form with commanding G2 victories in the 2011 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) and Hill Stakes (2000m).

There are 57 foals from his first crop and they are rising two year-olds.

Monaco Consul (High Chaparral) will be the foundation sire at Kings Creek Stud.  He was a Group 1 winner of the 2009 Victoria Derby and Sydney Spring Champion Stakes.

Among his 9 first crop starters have been the winners Major Consul (Beaudesert) and Favoured Grace (Sunshine Coast) and placegetter Beau Rivage (Morphettville).

Monaco Consul will stand alongside Salade (Snitzel) at the Denman stud operated by Adam Cook and Michael Hewitt.

Erstwhile high-flyer Nathan Tinkler stood 10 stallions at Patinack Farm’s properties in NSW and Queensland at the height of his massive investment in the thoroughbred industry.

Casino Prince and Husson (Arg) transferred to Vinery, Raheeb relocated to Wattle Brae Stud, Teranaba to Somme Lodge, Wonderful World was exported to China and Lope De Vega (Ire) no longer shuttles from Ireland,

Hunter Valley horseman Andrew Bowcock stood Beautiful Crown for four seasons at Patinack.  The USA bred stallion was subsequently transferred to Lincoln Farm and died, aged 23, in April 2014.
