Australian Sires: Victorian Breeder Backs Stallions

With a record number of new sires around Australia the competition is fierce, but both Larneuk Stud and Knightsbridge have stepped up to support their own stallions.

Larneuk stands O’lonhro, Wolf Cry, Cluster and Ilovethiscity in Euroa, Victoria, they also stand Honorius for Knightsbridge.

Issaree Suwunnavid one of the owners and CEO at Knightsbridge said “while it is a difficult year competing against much bigger farms we are confident that what we produce will be of the highest quality, there are many factors to consider when breeding, not only genetic but environmental, Larneuk certainly give us an edge as far as the exceptional facilities and care taken of our horses.”
“we will continue to buy value mares for Honorius and the other Larneuk stallions, personally I think O’lonhro is one of the most underrated stallions in the country” she added.

Breeding Season is coming in Australia and Larneuk Stud has some very exciting propositions for broodmare owners.

Larneuk Stud was established in 1980. The 200 acre property has a 120 mega litre dam for irrigation and a permanent creek.

Larneuk Stud has all the facilities required to cater for broodmares and the healthy development of the growing Thoroughbred.

Larneuk Stud has a proven record of producing winners and it is where the passion for racing begins.

From Larneuk

Larneuk Stud is in the heart of Victoria’s most fertile thoroughbred country is home to exciting stallions – Cluster, Ilovethiscity & O’Lonhro and in 2017 we are proud to introduce two additions to our stallion roster this season. Wolf Cry who is a Magic Millions winner and G2, Listed son of Street Cry and Holy Roman Emperor’s Stakes winning son Honorius who has an impeccable pedigree.

With progeny of O’lonhro and Ilovethiscity achieving great results on the racetrack we have now witnessed the arrival of Cluster’s first crop of foals who are receiving rave reports from all that bred to him.

Whatever bloodlines your mare boasts, you are bound to find a suitable mate amongst our stallion roster.
