Estambul & Torch Relay To Stand At Park Crest
Tasmania’s Westbury-based Park Crest Stud announced it will stand 2 new stallions this year: Argentine-bred dual Gr1-winner Estambul (previously at Victoria’s Ealing Park Stud) & 1st-season sire Torch Relay (who won twice in Tasmania under the name Fire Engine Guy). Proprietor Phillip Swinton commented: “Estambul (Kitwood-Espantada, by Our Native) is a stallion with a good upside. He is 20th on the list of Australia’s 3rd-season sires & has served 488 mares of which 300 were served in the past 3 seasons.” Torch Relay (Lonhro-Olympic Flame, by Buena Shore) is a half-brother to Sports (16 wins including the 2002 Gr2 Liston Stakes.
