TEXT OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF OUR APPOINTMENT BY OLDLANDS STUD: to go straight to the stallion pages:
IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE THE EMAILED VERSON OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT AND WOULD LIKE TO BE ON OUR MAILING LIST, PLEASE SEND YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS TO email@example.com
Oldlands Stud has announced the appointment of Allan Bloodlines to promote the business of the farm, particularly its consignments and stallions, with effect from 1st March, following the successful settling in of the MONTJEU stallion STAGELIGHT during 2013.
Oldlands Stud, established 46 years ago and located in the Hemel en Aarde region near Hermanus since 1995, has successfully blended a gentler near-the-ocean climate with individual attention leading to quality of life for the farm’s horses. Consistently averaging either side of 40% winners to runners, the stud is thus ranked with the leading breeders in that category.
STAGELIGHT (Montjeu – Zivania by Shernazar)…..Time to Switch Him On !
Here in South Africa is a son (just one) of one of the greatest of all modern sires MONTJEU,
already a sire of sires of Gr1 winners, out of a mare by SHERGAR’s half brother
“STAGELIGHT is a UAE Guineas winner but has been more or less hidden” commented David Allan. “We appreciate the chance of getting to grips with the only son of the great MONTJEU in South Africa. He will receive very thoughtful support at Oldlands plus mares from a core of breeders who recognise this unique opportunity”.
MONTJEU kept pace with GALILEO as the two great sons of SADLER’S
WELLS. His death at 16 was devastating to Coolmore, losing the sire of the winners of 4 Epsom Derbies, 4 Irish Derbies, 5 Coronation Cups, an English Guineas and a Breeders Cup Turf amongst a total so far of 43 Gr1 winners.
STAGELIGHT’s very existence in South Africa is drawing attention overseas – not surprising with the feats of MONTJEU’s Derby winning sons AUTHORIZED (siring 3 winners of 5 Gr1s in 2013 in England and Australia) and MOTIVATOR(2 Gr1 winners including the brilliant Arc Winner TREVE).
“The Gone West line is one of many in South Africa that really suits STAGELIGHT whose progeny tend to speed” remarks Barbara Sanne.
“All his 2013 mares are in foal and he covers enthusiastically”.
Meanwhile Oldlands’ stalwart INDIGO MAGIC (Gone West – Lady Carla by
Caerleon) will be highlighted more. The 775,000 guineas son of the sire of WESTERN WINTER, out of an Epsom Oaks Winner, has sired winners of the Merchants and Gauteng both Gr2, also ListedSophomore Sprint, Lady Slipper and overall 55% winners to runners. His fresh crop of 2013 yearlings has been successfully sold into training with various
trainers with results eagerly anticipated.
Mrs Sanne’s son Professor Ian Sanne of the University of Witwaterstrand, internationally eminent in his medical fields, is able to take a close interest in Oldland’s affairs as well as freshly bringing his global expertise in disease control and regulation to very strong involvement in South Africa’s African Horse Sickness strategies. Mother and Son make a formidable combination but the bedrock is always “Quality of Life for our Horses“.
FEE FOR EACH STALLION: R 8,000+vat (R2K+R6K)
