Nevele R's 2018/19 Service Fees

22 June 2018 | Written by Nikki Reed

Nevele R Stud is pleased to announce its stallion line-up and service fees for the 2018/19 breeding season.

A welcome new addition to our stallion ranks is Vincent (pictured), a stunning, record breaking son of Art Major, who we are standing in partnership with Alabar.

Poised to be Australasia's next superstar, before injury prematurely curtailed his career, Vincent won 16 of his 19 starts, including four at Group 1 level, and is Australasia's fastest ever 3-year-old.

On pedigree and type he is a terrific match for a wide variety of broodmares, especially Bettor's Delight and Direct Scooter line mares.

Over the past twelve months, A Rocknroll Dance has emerged as one of harness racing's hottest young sires, with a sensational first season in North America in 2017 and a very encouraging start to his down-under career in the past few months.

Not only was A Rocknroll Dance the leading North American first season sire last year, he was also the third leading sire of 2-year-old pacers overall and the sire of the US 2YO Pacing Colt of the Year, Lost In Time. In Australasia, he has already left the smart Western Australian Group 1 winner Its Rock And Roll, along with the classy New Zealand filly Miss Streisand.

The early signs are good too for the two-time US Trotting Colt of the Year Father Patrick to have a similarly spectacular start to his siring career in the Northern Hemisphere this year, with his progeny dominating the early 2-year-old qualifying races to date.

We're looking forward to the arrival of the first Southern Hemisphere foals by the fastest pacer of all time, Always B Miki and the richest and fastest trotter ever to stand down-under, Creatine, with their North American progeny looking outstanding types. Both stallions received strong support from breeders last year and will have good sized first crops on the ground.

We're also excited about seeing the first 2-year-olds by the six-time Group 1 winner Gold Ace on the racetracks this coming season. The feedback on this young son of Bettor's Delight has been very positive to date and he served more mares last season than in his previous two at stud.

The two proven trotting stallions Andover Hall and Muscle Mass have continued to enjoy success at the highest level in the past year, with the former siring the 2017 Hambletonian winner Perfect Spirit, and the latter siring numerous Grand Circuit winning juveniles and finishing 2017 as one of North America's top sires of 2-year-old trotters.

Down-under, Andover Hall's progeny have been highly sought after at the Yearling Sales and he was represented this week by his first Southern Hemisphere bred winner, Quick Andover, who was a stunning 25m winner at Maryborough on Thursday.

Muscle Mass has continued his incredible Australasian strike rate with 83% winners to starters in both New Zealand and Australia this season and with just the one crop racing finishes the season as New Zealand's leading sire of 4-year-old trotters.
