Memorable milestone for Allwood Stud

By Peter Wharton

Allwood Stud Farm has cemented its position as the leading standardbred nursery in Western Australia with the number of winners bred at the Bullsbrook property topping the 1600 mark recently.

The farm has now bred 1602 winners – including 462 on metropolitan tracks – to the end of June, according to noted Perth historian Alan Parker.

Allwood Stud produced nine individual winners of 12 races in the month of June. They included See The World (Northam and Wagin), Stars Of Gold (Northam), Love To Fly and Star Of The Bay (both Central Wheatbelt), Follow The Music, Star For Me and Rellim (all Wagin), Nightwatch Star (Young and Cowra, NSW) and Lord Willoughby, a winner at Saratoga Raceway, New York in 1:54.2.

The stud’s two stallions Fly Like An Eagle and Follow The Stars both enjoyed a very productive month.

Fly Like An Eagle, a top ten sire on both the two and three-year-old money-winning lists, was represented by five three-year-old winners including the ‘new’ winners Zuede (1:59.7), Chery On The Cake, Love To Fly and Didmeselfamischief (Globe Derby Park) as well as the Gloucester Park winner Jaxon Morgan and the five-year-old Mondo’s Eagle (1:57.8).

Follow The Stars sired 10 individual winners for the month including the three-year-olds Rellim, See The World and Follow The Music. Other Follow The Stars winners have been Krakka Lightning, Rodger James, Startup, Star Of The Bay, Star For Me, Stars Of Gold and Nightwatch Star.

The Allwood Stud-owned Art Of Rock emerged successful at Bunbury in a career-best 1:58.4.
