Sun Comes Out for Ace High Parade
Media Release - Monday August 5

After a wet and windy start to the day the sun appeared on cue to give shareholders and local breeders an excellent first look at Rich Hill's latest stallion recruit the dual Australian Group One winner Ace High (High Chaparral).

Among those in attendance were Ace High's former trainer David Payne and owner John Cordina who both addressed the crowd of almost 200. (Image - Kylie Bax, John Cordina and David Payne).

Ace High"David and John are both hugely excited and very positive about Ace high's stud future and it was great to have them fly over and share their thoughts and insight into Ace High's racing career and future stallion prospects," said Rich Hill's part owner John Thompson.

"David Payne has trained well over 100 Group One winners worldwide and when he tells you Ace High was up with the very best gallopers he has trained it certainly carries some weight."

Also parading on the day was the Monsun stallion Vadamos whose first crop weanlings lead the way at Karaka's May sale this year; Proisir (Choisir) who was New Zealand's joint leading first season sire by winners last season, and Shocking (Street Cry) who is sire of a leading Melbourne Cup candidate In Surprise Baby.




Rich Hill's Group One winning son of Deep Impact Satono Aladdin is currently in quarantine and arrives on the farm next week.
