    NZ Stallion Services 2022/23 Breeding Season

    An excellent dissection of mare services by Brad Reid makes excellent reading and indicates who is in or out of favour in NZ. NB: Pacing stallions only.

    As an aside, numbers suggest the NSW-bred Vincenthas defied the Colonial stallion curse covering 95 mares in NZ in his fifth season at stud. Apart from being leading first season sire in NZ, a check of the current Australian 2 and 3 year old winners list shows only his ageing sire Art Major and himself as resident stallions, the rest being shuttles.

    Reports of Bettor's Delight waning in influence remain a myth. Captaintreacherous had limited numbers and his unproven son Captain Crunch is all the rage with breeders and yearling buyers. Another son, and a stallion I really like, Downbytheseaside appears out of favour both sides of the Tasman.but perhaps this is a side effect of only having frozen semen available. As Brad Reid suggests, once Sinbad gets a few good barrier draws in NZ the spotlight will fall on his sire.

    This would mark the first time the number of mares served has sat below 2000 since the 1960’s.

    You will also note on the table above that the number of pacing mares served by NZ domiciled stallions has dropped drastically to well below 50%
