Unique Japan Cup Holiday Offered by Leneva Park

Sponsored Content - by Tara Madgwick - Thursday June 16

Leneva Park might be a relatively new player in the stallion market, but in standing a pair of Group I winning sons of breed shaping sires Deep Impact and Invincible Spirit, this Victorian farm have given themselves and their supporters a flying start to success.

A triple Group I winner in Australia at 1600m, Fierce Impact (Jpn) needs no introduction and was warmly received last spring covering 145 mares in his first season.

This year Leneva Park are offering a great incentive to breeders considering Fierce Impact, who is priced at $16,500 inc. GST.

The first 25 people to book and confirm a nomination to Fierce Impact will be placed in a draw to win the trip of a lifetime for two people to the Japan Cup with associated stud tours thanks to our travel partner Australian Racing Tours. Click here for more details and terms and conditions.

“Now that the world is opening up again, we wanted to give breeders an early carrot as well as a potential holiday by supporting Fierce Impact,” said Mick Sharkie, General Manager and Bloodstock Manager for Leneva Park.

“The link between the stallion, his sire Deep Impact and the Japan Cup is strong, so someone will enjoy a trip of a lifetime and hopefully they breed a really nice racehorse as well.”

A winner at two, that continued to improve with every season he raced, Fierce Impact ticks all the boxes for type and pedigree and the feedback from agents and mare owners has been positive.

“Everyone has had the chance to see him now. The agents love him on type, they love that he is a proven Group I performer rather than a wannabe, and now with fertility over 90% he’s the complete package,” Sharkie enthused.

“There’s huge opportunity for both breed to race and commercial outcomes with Fierce Impact and all the top agents recognise that.”

As a Group I winning juvenile by outstanding sire of sires Invincible Spirit, Royal Meeting (IRE) is unbeatable value at $11,000 inc. GST.

His first weanlings have made a splash this year highlighted by a stunning colt from Mistress McDowell that sold for $160,000 at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale when snapped up by great judge Dean Harvey from Baystone Farm.

“What more could you ask for from those first weanlings offered at public auction. An average of over $60,000 with a top sale of $160,000 and all off an $11,000 service fee, he’s a no brainer in 2022,” Sharkie said.

“There is a limited number of nominations at a very competitive early bird rate, but you’d want to be quick.”

Fierce Impact and Royal Meeting represent two of the most potent sirelines in the world today and are both from top quality female families giving them a real depth and diversity of pedigree.

“We just want to offer high quality product at fair value. We stand two very physical, very fertile Group I winning stallions at a fee that just about every breeder can afford. We think they are stand out options in a strong market,” Sharkie concluded.
