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.
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.
