Octagonal Back On Duty

Tuesday, 18th May 2010

Despite not being on the official list of active stallions for 2010 stallions standing at Darley's Australian properties, former Australian Horse-Of-The-Year & 10-times Gr1-winning sire Octagonal (Zabeel-Eight Carat, by Pieces Of Eight) will be available to breeders at a fee of $11,000. According to anzbloodstocknews.com, Octagonal is likely to stand at Darley's Aberdeen property in the Hunter Valley. The news comes on the back of a 2.5-lengths victory last weekend in the $740,000 Horsezone.com.au Inglis Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs at Scone by Star Of Octagonal (Octagonal-Joyce, by Faltaat) who now has 3 wins (also including last start's Gr3 South Pacific Classic over 1400m at Randwick on April 17) & 3 placings (including 2009's Inglis Challenge over 1300m at Scone) from 6 starts for $616,630 earnings.
