“Young Guns”
With the breeding season upon us it’s with great pride we can report our two “Young Gun Stallions” (Follow The Stars & Fly Like An Eagle) have excited so many clients, breakers and trainers. Not to mention the impressive sales results achieved for the breeders that presented yearlings at APG’s sales earlier this year.

Several years ago we made the astute decision to invest in elite colonial bred juvenile stars of the track. Who would have dreamt a young colt born and bred in Victoria could win both the Australian and New Zealand 2Yo of the year. This is a rare feat.

These two outstanding individuals had to tick many boxes to warrant the opportunity to stand under the Allwood banner – and they have passed every test with flying colours

Thankfully the reports we are receiving from our clients have been overwhelmingly positive and to the point that these “Young Guns“ may well be changing the breeders selections of stallions going forward in this country.

Mick Holtham, is our well respected stud master, whose journey started back in 1983 at Adios Stud and then onto Royden Lodge Stud NZ where he worked with the likes of Windshield Wiper, Smooth Fella, Game Pride and Sundon.

In Mick’s own words, “I haven’t been this excited in my career about the prospects of two stallions potentially reaching such lofty heights – it’s truly a privilege not only to work with these two stallions but to see the joy and excitement it’s creating for our clients. This is so satisfying”.

Under Allwood ownership, Fly Like An Eagle served north of 100 mares last year and Follow The Stars has averaged more than 100 mares per season for his first three years at our stud. We are now asking for your support for the current breeding season.

With your backing (by booking your mares) we can make a very significant shift in bringing better outcomes for the owners and breeders in this country.

I invite you to visit TestMating.com/all/  to see how your mares line up with these Two Young Guns of the breeding world.

Our stallions’ progeny will be eligible for the major race series’ like Breeders Crown, Bathurst, West Sired and of course The Allwood, foals can be eligible to Vicbred, NSW Breeders Challenge, QBred, Tasbred, SA Southern Cross, eligible depending on where the foal is conceived and born (conditions apply).

All the best for the breeding season from the friendly team at Allwood !
