Kempinsky Moves To Independent Stallions
Regally-bred 7YO stallion Kempinsky (Danehill-Tristalove, by Sir Tristram) will relocate to Independent Stallions Victoria following the recent sale of the Alteri family's Newlands Stud at Seymour. The 2003 Gr2 AAMI Vase winner & dual Gr1-placed Kempinsky (who retired to stud in 2005 with 2 wins & 3 placings from 8 starts for $453,500 prize-money) was recently represented by his 1st yearlings at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale with all 10 lots selling at an average $60,000. Walter Alteri commented: "We are delighted that Kempinsky will move to Independent Stallions following our decision to sell Newlands. He will not be forced to move far & is still very accessible for the loyal band of broodmare owners who have provided him with an outstanding opportunity at stud". Independent Stallions manager Mike Becker added: "I have stayed out of the race to stand a son on Danehill until now. It seems every stud has one, but until now I had not been able to find a son of Danehill to excite me as much as Kempinsky & I am naturally happy to have been asked by the Alteri family to stand the horse. Like the buyers at the Melbourne Premier Sale, I was very impressed with the types he is leaving & now we are seeing his progeny going into all the major stables, which is a huge advantage for his stud future. With the numbers of foals he has from his first 3 seasons at stud, he will have every opportunity & I think he is a very live chance to succeed."
