Geelong racecourse will be blessed on a mid-winter Tuesday with a couple of star visitors. Rosemont Stud will launch their stallion aspirations for Toorak Toff as well as show off their Golden Slipper evergreen Danzero. Both horses will be parading in between races six and seven to give breeders a good look at some of the best breeding value in Victoria in 2012. Interest is expected to be extremely high on track in Toorak Toff, as the magnificent son of Show a Heart lets down ahead of his debut season at stud. The dual Group One winner will stand at $16,500 this year at Rosemont, this year standing their stallions at the new farm in Gnarwarre recently purchased from Makybe.
Danzero, the ever-popular son of Danehill, will cover a select book of mares which is close to full following a recent new Sydney stakes winner See the World who won the Listed Takeover Target Stakes at Gosford, and a very impressive winner in Singapore. He will stand at $11,000.
