Aussie Purchases Boost Mongolian Khan Book
Media Release - Monday June 13
Mongolian Khan's first book of mares will include a number of Australian-sourced consorts.

The four-year-old will stand at Windsor Park Stud in 2016 in a partnership comprising the Cambridge farm and the Inner Mongolia Rider Horse Group, who raced the multiple Group One winner.

Mongolian KhanWindsor Park also offered their expertise, along with New Zealand Bloodstock, in supporting Rider Horse principal Lang Lin to secure a batch of broodmares at a Gold Coast sale.
"The stud, Danny Rolston and myself went through the catalogue to find mares with suitable pedigrees for Mongolian Khan," NZB Managing Director Andrew Seabrook said.

"Steve Till of Windsor Park and Danny then went over and inspected 125 of them and whittled that down and I just turned up and did the bidding."

The end result was 14 mares purchased for $A1.94 million at an average of $A138,571 with a highest-priced acquisition of $A320,000.

The top lot for the Mongolian Khan at Windsor Park Stud Syndicate was Champagne Shisha, a five-time winner by Dehere bought out of Victoria's Two Bays Farm.]

Closely related to the dual Group One English Oaks and 1000 Guineas winner Minding, the mare is a half-sister to the European Group One performer Winged Cupid and she has been served by champion sprinter Brazen Beau.

The syndicate's second top lot was for $A250,000 for Herberina, a half-sister by Street Cry to the multiple Group One winners Niconero and Nicconi, out of the Widden Stud consignment. She has been served by Written Tycoon.

A significant purchase with close New Zealand ties is the Stratum mare Trustam, who was secured for $A220,000 from Willow Park Stud's draft.

She is a half-sister to the Gr.3 Manawatu Cup winner and Gr.1 Zabeel Classic runner-up Weregoingtogetcha and she has been served by Shooting To Win. – NZ Racing Desk.
