Despite wet and windy conditions, there was a good turnout for Touchstone Farm’s Open Day at North Dandalup on Sunday.
In what is shaping as a difficult year for breeders, Touchstone’s managing director Glenn Martin was very positive. “From our perspective, we are very pleased that Flying Pegasus ended the season as Western Australia’s leading second season sire and Vital Equine was the leading first-season sire by wins.
“The Rising has again brought Flying Pegasus to the fore and Wombie’s Legacy has certainly flown the flag for Vital Equine who has only had limited runners.
“The first foals of Planet Five are now on the ground and everyone attending was very impressed with their quality and Planet Five himself has furnished in to a magnificent stallion and truly representative of his exceptional pedigree.
“We have a great choice of stallions and, just as importantly, our stallion owners understand the changing marketplace and all three sires will stand at a reduced fee of $4,400.00 (inc gst) in 2012.
“There are extra incentives for multiple bookings and black type mares and in the coming days we will announce some innovative offers that further benefit local breeders.”
