Freshmen Arrive at Spendthrift Australia

Media Release - Wednesday June 13

Spendthrift Australia are pleased to announce that Gold Standard and Overshare have arrived at their Romsey farm and are available for inspection.

OvershareHeadlining the roster this year will be Overshare, a Group 3-winning son of champion sire I am Invincible. A winner at two, Overshare won the G3 Zeditave Stakes and the Listed McKenzie Stakes, both at 1200m, at three.

"We are very excited to have him at the farm for breeders to see because we feel that he ticks all the boxes," said Garry Cuddy, General Manager of Spendthrift Australia. 

"He's by a champion sire, he's a multiple stakes-winning sprinter, and he definitely looks the part."

From the family of five champions and a $320,000 Inglis Easter yearling, Overshare is being offered on Spendthrift Australia's Share the Upside program at a fee of $15,400 Inc. GST for a one-time only payment on live foal. He will also stand for $11,000 Inc. GST on live foal terms.

Also retiring to the farm this year is Sebring's Group 2-winning son Gold Standard. 

Gold StandardBred in Victoria by Mr. Robert Crabtree and acquired by the Waterhouse/Bott Stable from the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale, Gold Standard placed second to Addictive Nature on debut in his only start at two, and returned at three to turn the tables and take out the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes at Rosehill in dominating fashion, defeating Group 1 winners Trapeze Artist, Ace High and The Mission before finishing fourth in one of the deepest renewals of the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes in recent memory.

"Sebring is a sire that we have a lot of time for and we are very excited to offer breeders his well-performed son," said Cuddy. 

"Our Farm Manager Grant Burrill (formerly Assistant Manager at Widden) says he is the spitting image of his sire, on type and in mannerism. Which is an added bonus in our opinion." 

Gold Standard will be offered on the Share the Upside program for $7,700 Inc. GST for a one-time only payment on live foal. He will also stand for $5,500 Inc. GST for breeders wishing to breed on live foal terms.
