What a wonderful draft of future champions, we just can’t wait to offer
Under the capable hands of Benstud is a quality draft of 4 colts and 1 filly, on account of Tony Xerri trading as Sloys Company Pty Ltd. With a long history of selling quality yearlings including the exceptional race horse and Colonial sire Vincent who will again stand at Alabar for the 2020 breeding season being just one horse of note produced by the stud
Tony under the Sloys banner has had great influence in the Australian Standardbred industry, breeding the likes of Kept for Pleasure (Safely Kept), G1 winner and winner of 19 races and earning over $500,000 in stakes earnings at 1.56, who is also the dam of Vincent.
Adding to the strength of their brood mares are mares such as Luda and Miss Hazel, with other notable names such as Lourdes (Fake Left) 36 wins & $394,000. Louvre (Art Major) G1 & 16 wins earning over $400,000 and the great Miss Brazilian (Mach Three) the multiple winner of NSW broodmare of the year, producing seven foals to race, all to win with progeny earnings in excess of $700,000.
Leading their offering for 2021 is a lovely Bay Colt, by the great Bettors Delight and out of the G1winning mare Miss Hazel (Presidential Ball), winner of 15 races, earning over $300,000 at 1:57. With progeny winning 41 races from 5 winning progeny and earnings of over $320,000, this colt is not to be missed.
A typey Sweet Lou colt out of the multiple race winning mare Ravishing Girl (Sportswriter) 1.57.1 is already gaining interest with her first foal to race Let’s Get Rockin (Mach Three) already 1 win from 3 starts at 1.59.9.
Their consistent producing mare Jet Girl (Jeremes Jet) is well represented again this year with a well developed Art Major colt. Jet girl a race winner herself has had 3 foals to race, and all to win and in 1.56 or better. Craig Judd from Benstud said “This colt on type is certainly one of the picks of our draft on type and being from this mare family is sure not to disappoint come sale time”.
A daughter of their great mare Miss Hazel, Miss Rocknroll (Rocknroll Hanover) 8 wins for $70,000 at 1.54.9 has produced another interesting Colt, being by Art Major, bred on these powerful mare lines and by the great Art Major will certainly command interest from many buyers.
Rounding of their offering is their third Art Major sibling and their only filly they will offer for sale in the catalogue this year. This filly is out the wonderful Christian Cullen mare Luda, who herself was a G1 winner, winning 13 races and over $200,000 in stakes earnings at 1.52.5 and from a family of winners which will offer great residual value in this filly after her time on the race track.
The Nutrien team thanks Tony and the Sloys Company for giving us the opportunity to offer this wonderful draft of yearlings and look forward to presenting you with more of these future champions next week.
