Larneuk Releases O’Lonhro TV Commercial
Larneuk the little farm doing big things in Victoria is ramping up awareness of their Award winning sire O’Lonhro with a TV commercial currently airing on Racing.com.
It has been a great year for Larneuk the farm has produced a Group 1 winning 2yo, one of Australia’s best country horses as well as continuing to produce winners week after week not only in Australia but overseas as well.
The ad features O’Lonhro, one of 4 stallions the farm stands.
Earning the title of “Best Victorian Stallion Under $10,000,” in 2017 O’Lonhro was recognized for the great job he has been doing for those in the owner/breeder market.
This year he has continued to produce some very exciting horses, An imposing near black stallion built very much in the mould of his eleven times Group One winning sire (sire of 68 stakes winners), O’Lonhro won the Gr.2 Chelmsford Stakes (a race also won by Lonhro on two occasions) in record time.
He has been siring winners out of a wide range of mares and has been represented by winners in across the spectrum from stayers to sprinters.
There’s a very good reason why Lonhro has over a dozen sons standing at stud. They work!
O’Lonhro is working too and little wonder. A cracking individual who is renowned for throwing them to type, O’Lonhro was unbeaten in his two starts as a 3YO before capping his career at four with a victory in the time honoured Group Two Chelmsford Stakes (emulating his sire and beating home Group One Doncaster Handicap winner, Triple Honour), along with a second in the Group Two Warwick Stakes.
It’s a pretty good family as well … mum, Mamzelle Pedrille, was a Group Two winner in Sydney and is up close and personal with both Group One winner Diamond Drille and, wait for it, I Am Invincible (32 stakes winners). In this industry, it’s not always about what you know, but who your stallion is related to!
Most importantly, O’Lonhro has gotten off to a good start at stud with his first few crops producing Mamzelle Tess, the winner of six and Group placed in May, stakes placed O’Lonera – also a 6-time winner with over half a million in the bank – O’Lonh Star (6 wins), Big Reel (6 wins), O’ So Hazy (5 wins). All up … nearly 70 winners of circa $4 million.
That’s pedigree and performance AND excellent value with his fee just $5,500 inc. GST.
