Over the Moon

Tara Madgwick - Tuesday October 30
New recruit Smart Missile has been making all the news for Twin Hills Stud this spring, but the arrival of some stunning first foals by his barn mate Odyssey Moon has put the dashing young son of Snitzel firmly in the spotlight.



With his eye-catching blaze and brilliant turn of foot, Group III winning speedster Odyssey Moon is among the most attractive and best performed sons of champion sire Snitzel to go to stud. 


From seven starts as a juvenile, Odyssey Moon contested all three legs of the 2YO Triple Crown finishing second to Pride of Dubai in the Group I ATC Sires Produce Stakes  after placing in the Group II ATC Skyline Stakes and Group II ATC Pago Pago Stakes.


As you can see below, his foals are cast in his image and bringing breeders back for more.

There is still time to breed a foal like these - Odyssey Moon stands at a fee of $8,800.
