Stallions on Show at Aquis Hunter Valley

Media Release - Monday August 26

The Aquis team held three successive days of stallion parades at our Hunter Valley property.

Brave Smash was a crowd pleaser!Attended by a host of breeders, clients and shareholders, the crowd viewed our six locally based stallions, headlined by our two new recruits for the season; the dual Gr.1-winning sprint sensation Brave Smash and I Am Invincible's Gr.2-winning juvenile Santos.

"We were extremely proud to parade our stallions over the weekend," stated Aquis Farm Head of Nominations Jimmy Unwala.

"All the stallions looked in fantastic order and NSW Stallion Manager Ejaz Hussain and his team should be applauded for turning them out in such magnificent condition.

"Each, and every stallion we select to join the Aquis roster has been chosen based on succinct criteria of exceptional ability, juvenile precocity, speed and conformation, and we feel the 2019 roster is our best to date, offering breeders the opportunity to access proven bloodlines and competitive fees.

"A dual Gr.1-winning sprinter of the highest calibre, defeating an outstanding array of top-class Gr.1 winners during his career, Brave Smash epitomizes what all breeders look for in a stallion prospect, while Santos showed from early on that he was a high class juvenile with exceptional speed, winning the Gr.2 Skyline Stakes, a race that has given us numerous proven Gr.1 sires in the past, like Snitzel."
