San Luis Moves To NZ Grangewilliam Stud
Gr1-winning sire San Luis (Flying Spur-Star Style Girl, by Without Fear) "is the latest addition to NZ Central District stallion ranks, joining Brilliance & Ruby's Jester at Grangewilliam Stud near Wanganui," reported NZ Thoroughbred Marketing. Australian-bred San Luis began his stud career at Highview Stud & his oldest progeny are now 4YOs (including Star Of Luis who won last season's Listed Heritage Stakes at Rosehill in Sydney before being sold to Hong Kong, plus stakes-placed NZ 2YOs Eel Win & Take The Cake). On the track himself, San Luis was the joint top-weighted colt on the 2000-01 NZ 2YO Free Handicap, winning both the Gr1 Manawatu Sires' Produce Stakes & Gr3 Taranaki 2YO Classic (plus 2nd in the Gr1 Ellerslie Sires' Produce Stakes & subsequently 2nd as a 3YO in the Gr1 NZ 2000 Guineas).
