Taylor said, “I’m just so excited to be joining the team at Allwood, with Follow The Stars really shinning brightly at the moment having sired the richest 2Yo in the Southern Hemisphere . Add to this the high level of expectation around Rock N Roll World and with Fly Like An Eagle’s progeny selling so well, its going to be a massive breeding season. It’s clear that with the new 150 book restrictions, and Vicbred eligibility that both Follow The Stars and Rock N Roll World sires will certainly have a big roles to play in the 20/21 season. Just look at Rock N Roll World’s bio below – it’s outstanding”.
