Your Song Wins First Season Sires' Title
Widden Stud's Gr1-winning stallion Your Song (Fastnet Rock-Zembu, by Fuji Kiseki) has capped a remarkably successful 12 months to finish as the leading Australian First Season Sire by winners, wins, metropolitan winners and stakes horses. “Widden Stud have had a great track record for producing successful first season sires in recent years with Stratum, Northern Meteor, Sebring and Star Witness all finding immediate success before going on to become established as leading Group I sires,” said Antony Thompson. “Your Song has just kept improving right through the season and as we come into spring he has the right type of horses out there to keep his name in lights.” Your Song’s tally of 11 Australian winners of 15 races come from just 30 Australian runners with stakes-winner Split Lip the highlight horse accompanied by stakes-placegetters Memento, Soundcheck and Peristrophe. Juvenile colt Brave Song also stamped himself as a young horse with a promising future when running out an impressive 3 length winner at Canterbury last Wednesday for Peter & Paul Snowden. Your Song will cover his best ever book of mares as he is fully booked this spring at a fee of $22,000.
