Australian breeders are justifiably world renowned for producing high class sprinters – with not only Black Caviar proving herself to be an all-time great but the likes of Choisir, Miss Andretti, Scenic Blast, Starspangledbanner and Takeover Target all outstanding on the international stage.
And then there are the Australian bred horses who have excelled on the Asian circuit – such as Rocket Man, Ultra Fantasy and Sacred Kingdom.
But only one can claim a record that stands alongside Black Caviar's amazing streak – the Hong Kong superstar Silent Witness.
A horse who swept all before him as he won his first 17 starts in scintillating fashion, the son of El Moxie was ranked by the International Federation of Horse Racing Authorities the world's fastest horse three years running.
How can breeders tap into this amazing speed?
Via his exciting half-brother – Bombora Downs' first season stallion Best Choice.
The name says it all – he is the best choice for breeders, especially with some hot deals being offered for a short time only.
Take your choice of two special offers…
·The first season at stud deal – send one mare this season and receive a bonus nomination to use next year
·The Spring deal – send two mares this season for the price of one AND be rewarded by a bonus nomination to use next year
This deal (conditions apply) is limited to only the next 25 mares and also available to those who have already booked mares in – so get in quickly!
At a fee of $3,300 (incl gst) Best Choice represents outstanding value with his champion sire Redoute's Choice proving to be as good a sire of sires as he has been a sire – already ten of his sons producing stakes winners.
And Best Choice was a horse of considerable talent – "a special horse who showed heaps of ability from day one," said trainer Clarry Conners after the horse overcome trouble in running to win impressively at his Canterbury debut.
"I've got a really, really big opinion of him," he enthused, adding that he had not been as excited about a young horse "since Mouawad."
Confident that Best Choice would go on to much bigger and better things, Conners said "we will give him a couple more runs, win a couple more races with him, win some black type, and give him a break – it will be easy!"
Jockey Peter Robl was also impressed.
"He is a lovely big horse," he said. "He has a good stride, a stallion's pedigree and a terrific attitude to go with it."
Injury unfortunately hindered Best Choice's career but that enables the breeder, at a great value price, to utilize a stallion who has it all – breeding, type, temperament and ability.
Renowned Hong Kong owner/breeder Apollo Ng is excited about Best Choice's prospects.
"With the impeccable record and popularity of Silent Witness among Asian racehorse owners, I won't be surprise if the progeny of his half-brother Best Choice, being the only stallion out of his dam Jade Tiara, are well sought after during yearling sales."
The same great deals are on offer for fellow Bombora Downs stallion Golden Snake – Group One winner and sire.
