Group-Winning Eloa To Visit Stratum
NZ's Little Avondale Stud confirmed stakes-winning mare Eloa (Volksraad-Cent From Heaven, by Centaine) will have her 1st mating to Australian 2005 Gr1 Golden Slipper winner Stratum (Redoute's Choice-Bourgeois, by Luskin Star) this year. Stratum will stand his 1st season this year at Widden Stud in the NSW Hunter Valley, while Eloa was retired earlier this year after a career which featured Gr3 success in the Highview Stakes (1200m) at Hastings. Eloa is 1 of 45 mares to be mated with some of the leading stallions in Australasia this year by Little Avondale Stud & its clients. Successful broodmare Sound Lover (Stylish Century-Northern Meeting, by Young Generation) is currently in foal to Savabeel & will be sent this year to Pins. Another stakes-winning mare Rapid Kay (Towkay-Racing Waters by Racing Is Fun) is currently in foal to One Cool Cat.
