Second Winner for Contributer

Tara Madgwick - Sunday May 24

Mapperley Stud stallion Contributer (IRE) was represented by his second individual winner when Jeronimos scored a strong win in a Newcastle Maiden over 1200m for trainer James Cummings.

The two-year-old colt stepped out for the first time at the same venue three weeks ago when finishing third and showed plenty of fortitude to defeat three-year-old Brutality on Saturday.

Out of the stakes-winning Volksraad mare Viana, Jeronimos was bred by Jonny Orr and sold by Mapperley Stud at the 2019 New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sales in Book 1 for $250,000 where he was purchased by Godolphin.

Jeronimos was the most expensive yearling from the first crop of Contributer

He is the highest priced yearling from the first crop of Contributer.

A dual Group One-winning son of High Chaparral, Contributer stands at Mapperley Stud for a fee of $10,000+gst.

His first crop of juveniles have impressed, with the John O’Shea-trained Lion’s Roar winning on debut a fortnight ago and being targeted at Group assignments in spring.
