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!
Larneuk was established in 1980. The 200 acre property has a 120 mega litre dam for irrigation and a permanent creek.
Larneuk is situated 15km south-west of Euroa in the heart of Victoria’s Thoroughbred country.
Larneuk has all the facilities required to cater for broodmares and the healthy development of the growing Thoroughbred.
Larneuk has a proven record of producing winners and it is where the passion for racing begins.
