First foal of the season, the Written Tycoon x Obsidian Dragon filly foaled August 1.

In the coming months it will be a busy time for the entire breeding industry with thousands of mares to foal as well as many to visit stallions around the country and Mill Park Stud is no different, with our mares set to foal down before heading off to be covered – hoping to produce the next Champion of the turf. 

With so many new and exciting stallions heading to Australia this season as well as the current proven ones, it is such a hard decision as to where to send them…

Some of the mares under our care due to foal are listed below. 

  • Dane Belltar, the dam of Group 1 winner Fawkner and Group 2 winner Tanby is in foal to More Than Ready, having produced a filly by Shooting To Win last season

  • Elegant Eagle (NZ), the dam of Group 1 winner Go Indy Go and Group 3 winner Essay Raider was covered by exciting New Zealand stallion Tavistock last season

  • Elusive Wonder, dam of juvenile stakes winner Modern Wonder is due to foal to this season’s soon to be crowned Champion Sire Snitzel

  • Hussy By Choice, the well related Hussonet mare will foal to Not A Single Doubt after producing an I Am Invincible filly at her first season last year

  • Molto Bene, the Group 3-winning half-sister to Group 1 winner Mourinho will foal to Hinchinbrook after producing a Redoute’s Choice colt last season

  • Pasadoble, a three-quarter sister to Group 3 winner Diamond Earth, will foal to Written Tycoon

  • The Quick One, lightly raced daughter of Group 1 winner Il Quello Veloce, from the family of Group 1 winners Terravista, Tiger Tees and Super Easy, will foal to Horse of the Year Dissident in his first season at stud

While our plans are still being finalised, we aim to send mares to exciting new sires Astern, American Pharoah, Frosted, Mikki Isle, Extreme Choice and Capitalist while supporting many successful sires such as Snitzel, All Too Hard, Foxwedge, Not A Single Doubt, I Am Invincible, Rebel Raider and many more.
