Wyndspelle Moves to Victoria

Media Release - Friday December 16

It is an exciting week for Cornwall Park Stud with the highly credentialled stallion Wyndspelle due to arrive from New Zealand on Sunday.

"We cannot wait to have him here," the stud's Peter Boyle said, confident that the handsome bay is a great fit for Victoria... "he has performance and pedigree and he is a great type, he ticks all the boxes."

Also delighted is Campin Bloodstock's Jennifer Campin who is proud that Wyndspelle achieved so much during his injury free racing career - retiring sound and happy.

"To have secured Wyndspelle a position at stud in Australia - where sales results and prize money are at record levels - is a testament to his Group One accomplishments, his pedigree, his temperament and the very high quality of progeny he has left so far."

"He has a wonderful race record with multiple Group One performances on both sides of the Tasman," Peter Boyle added - "he raced at the elite level from two to six, his courage and will to win making him a crowd favourite."


"His yearlings are absolutely cracking types and we think that he is a wonderful addition to Victoria’s stallions ranks."

Five of Wyndspelle's debut crop members make their way to Karaka in February whilst two are on offer at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale - a half-brother to the stakes winner Olympic out of a daughter of the Gr.1 mare Black Mamba and a daughter of the Gr.3 placed O'Reilly mare Amazing Lady both members of the Cornwall Park Stud draft.

 A horse who showed above average talent from the get-go, Wyndspelle was strong to the line when second at his two-year-old debut - next time out an easy winner at Te Rapa and at just his third start he flashed home late to just miss out on the prize in the Gr.1 Diamond Stakes.

He would go on to enjoy an outstanding career on the track - winning four races including the Gr.1 Captain Cook Stakes and the Gr.2 Waikato Guineas. He was in great form at the start of his career and at the end - winning the Captain Cook at his penultimate start and going so close at his finale, flying home in the Gr.1 Thorndon Mile.

A horse with an exciting turn of foot, Wyndspelle was Group 1 placed on seven occasions with one of those great runs coming in Melbourne - a game third in the Cantala Stakes at Flemington on VRC Derby Day.

The Danehill free Wyndspelle is one of the 11 Gr.1 winners and 86 stakes winners sired by Darley's high class stallion Iffraaj who is already proving his worth as a sire of sires with five of his sons siring stakes winners... Wootton Bassett, Turn Me Loose, Almanzor and Ribchester amongst his very exciting prospects.

Boasting a cross of the influential matriarch Special via her son Nureyev and grandson Sadler's Wells, Wyndspelle is one of the 11 Gr.1 winners and 55 stakes winners produced by daughters of High Chaparral... and we know how well he works in this part of the world!

Hailing from a high class Australasian family - that of the stakes winners Lady Alberton, Alberton Park, Sir Alberton, Te Akau Rose, Straussbridge, Talaria, Testarhythm, Cavalry Rose, Magic Briar and the Doncaster Handicap hero Brutal who has proven so popular during his first three seasons at Newgate - Wyndspelle has plenty to offer the Victorian breeder.
