Breeders Made Attractive Offer By LP Stallions
It's not often that mare owners are afforded the opportunity of receiving a free nomination to two quality stallions but that is exactly what Victorian-based LP Stallions is offering breeders. This season, LP stallions wants to show their support "for many struggling breeders" by offering attractive deals for its stallions Golden Snake (Danzig-Dubian, by High Line) & Best Choice (Redoute's Choice-Jade Tiara, by Bureaucracy). "We acknowledge that some breeders are doing it tough and we have been looking for ways to make it easier," explained LP Stallions' Julie Nairn. "We really think our stallions are already great value but these deals make them all the more attractive." If breeders send a mare to either Golden Snake or Best Choice they will get a bonus nomination to use next year. Even better, if they send two mares they will not only get a bonus nomination but will also receive a 50 per cent discount on the nomination fee per mare. Both stallions are certainly worth serious consideration. Not only is Golden Snake a four times Gr1 winner, but he is a son of sire of sires Danzig and a half-brother to champion mare Sayyedati. Golden Snake has sired Gr1 WATC Railway Stakes winner Gilded Venom, Warrnambool Cup winner Hissing Sid, & Italian star mare Quiza Quiza Quiza. Best Choice also boasts some impressive bloodlines. By Redoute's Choice from the Bureaucracy mare Jade Tiara, he is a half-brother to Hong Kong's iconic champion sprinter Silent Witness and a full-brother to Gr2 winner & Gr1 runner-up Sister Madly. Both Golden Snake & Best Choice stand at Ridgeview Park Thoroughbred Stud north-east of Bendigo, for fees of $5,000 & $3,300 respectively.
