Natural Blitz To Stand At Rangeview

Monday, 5th March 2007

Perth breeder Brad Hampton has purchased multiple group-winning 7YO stallion Natural Blitz (Dehere-Mohave Dancer, by Zabeel) to stand his debut season at Rangeview Stud. Natural Blitz (an $85,000 yearling at the 2001 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) boasts 8 wins from 1000-2400m (including the Gr2 Hill Stakes, Gr2 Tulloch Stakes, Gr2 Shannons Classic, Gr2 Feehan Stakes, Gr2 O'Shea Stakes & Listed Wagga Cup) & 9 placings (including the Gr1 Australian Cup, Gr1 Doomben Cup, Gr2 Chelmsford Stakes, Gr3 Craven Plate, Listed Sky High Stakes, Listed Interlink Stakes & Listed NZ Auckland Handicap) from 59 starts for $1,258,180 prize-money. Hampton commented: "With Dehere standing at $82,500 last season (at Coolmore) & his progeny selling so well (BBA Ireland agent Adrian Nicoll paid $750,000 for Natural Blitz's yearling full-sister at the 2006 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) we are absolutely delighted to have procured Natural Blitz & equally delighted to have him stand at Rangeview under the astute management of Robbie & Jody Gray. It is not often an opportunity arises to obtain a stallion of his quality, breeding & performance. I feel he is a perfect addition to the quality stallions already in Perth. Interest was strong on the east coast, but we acted quickly to secure the deal. I expect to have him arrive in Perth in the next 4 weeks."
